Nostrils mini Tute by sealle Nostrils mini Tute by sealle
Eye mini Tute by sealle

Well during my stream today we did a mini tutorial on how i draw nostrils/muzzles. 

Its not a particularly complex method, and its not very in depth but it allows you to draw nostrils from lots of angles and with reasonable ease and accuracy. Its not perfect as my knowledge of anatomy isn't perfect, but it works well for me and i thought i would upload it in case anyone else is interested in seeing how i do it.

Hope it helps someone.

I agree! Thats why I really love watching streams, theres so much to learn from how other people do things, and its a great source of inspiration! If you ever do more of these tips, I love to see how you proportion the body or shade! 

ahh its this super cool artist resin of a horse in a relaxed pose with his hair going everywhere like crazy and a lazy lip www.mink-studios.com/resin/sto…

They really are amazing, i learn so much every single time i watch someone. Seeing someones stream post on DA is one of my favourite things to fin in my inbox! I might try do a proportion one (though i am still learning about that) but shading changed every two seconds so i don't have a particular style or approach.

Oh my goodness he is beautiful!!!! *clutches* Those lines are actually from Maggie's (khC Magnetism) reference sheet.

This is pretty helpful! Thank you!

I would really love to see how to draw the head itself from like, well, head on. :XD: I can never get the eyes and nostrils and ears to look just right. Honestly, the head at lots of different angles would be sooooooooooooo helpful. Just if you have time. :heart:

No worries.

There are a lot of how to draw tutorials on heads, and my method is very similar to a few. 

fav.me/d5axf15 Raes shows how i position the flat plane at the top of the head,
fav.me/d6w7zf2 This one is a great example of how lines can help place everything correctly, which is something i use a lot! 
fav.me/d1v8jpm And this one is a good example of not following the 2 circles rule. i tend to start with lines and then add the round jaw later. 

Really i would look through a bunch and decide which parts work best for you. If you still need more help i could do a how i draw heads tute another day!
