Color Your Cartoon Nose Drawing
Outline your cartoon nose with black ink. If you're using a paintbrush or ink pen, experiment with different strokes and line thicknesses. Notice how the dashes on the nose become smaller.
Afterward, shade the outline with your chosen skin color. Use pale shades for the uppermost parts of the nose that catch the light. Add shadows on the side of the nose and around the nostrils.
