Now start to draw the nose. There is one little secret here: hatch the nose using circular strokes (if you can call them strokes); you get it very structured; use dark and light brown, black colors.

Don’t color the white hair, just slightly mix it with orange and brown colors. Addition: how to draw hair. Always draw in sections. If you try to draw everything at once, using the lightest color first, nothing doing! So, do the sketch as accurately as possible; first, mark the hair growth with the help of the thin lines, so as not to get confused, as well as immediately mark areas with hair of different colors. Now: the quantity of layers is always different: sometimes in some places, for example, where there should be a lighter color, just one layer remains, and where the color should be intensified, there are three or four layers; but in order to place them well, the strokes should be made at a distance from each other (about 1 mm), then the next color (not too tightly) is applied much better. Thus, gradually apply colors until you get the desired tint.
