Drawing a nose is not that hard, but just rememberthat an anime character always has a small nose. In general, if you have a large mouth then you should have a large nose and vice versa. Sometimes 3itists like to draw the nose very pointie. It is very usual to have a pointie nose in anime character but occasionally some artists may prefer drawing it that way. Start drawing the nose below the cross intersection. If the cross is facing right then the nose should be pointing right and vice versa. The top of the nose will start from the cross intersection and curve a bit down. Just remember to make the length of the nose descent size. As a beginner you should not make the nose too fancy, try to keep it as simple as much as possible.
Learning how to draw an ear may looks hard, but actually it is very easy. M ost of the anime characters" ears you see on TV are very simple. The artists like to keep the ears very plain. The top of the ears should be just below the top of the eyes. The ear lobes should be below the bottom eyelashes. Never drawthe ear toward like they are actually sticking out. When the outline are done for the ears, the next step is to draw some curvy lines within the ears. The ears style work the same for both male and female character. In addition, one may add some ear rings to the ear lobes when drawing a female character.
Drawing a female hairs is probably the hardest thing for an artist. It takes man/ years of practice and by drawing over and over again. For beginner first you have to draw a hair line across the face. The hair line should be about 1.5 higher than the height of 3n eye. Before, drawing the actually hair, please note that anime hair consists of two parts: the bangs in the front of the character face that hang down over the eyes, and the larger back portion of the hair that hangs down at the back of the head. From the hair line draw curvy lines down; this will be the front bangs. The back portion of the hair curv e toward and downward toward the shoulder. When everything is in place, draw the lines thicker to make it more realistic.
Drawing a male hairs is easier than drawing a female hair because it contains less detail. Same as before the hair line should be about 1.5 higher than the height of an eye. Before, drawing the actually hair, please note that male hair consists of one part only: the bangs in the front and the larger back portion of the hair are in one large piece. They are not separate as in the female hair. From the hair line draw curvy lines down; this will be the front bangs. The back portion of the hair curve toward and downward toward the shoulder. When everything is in place, draw the lines thicker to make it more realistic.
In real life drawing 3 human hands are very difficult, but for anime it is not as hard as drawing a human hands. The reasons for this is because in anime character we take out most of the details. When you are watching anime on TV or reading a Manga you will rarely see the hands and to lesser extend the feet (cover by shoes).
Please note that the female hand is thinner than the male hands; and the female hand is concentrate length wise. As for the male hand it is thicker than the female hand and the male hand is concentrate width wise.
Also, the male hand contains more detail as shown below(ie veins).
