I see this all the time in fanart and I don’t get it. More power to people stylizing, but sometimes it gets a little ridiculous.
Everyone has a cold now
i am so guilty of this
clearly those colored troll noses people draw spread beyond homestuck
hahaha god i hate this
I feel like this is such a lazy affect to give a drawing. It’s like all the cracks and lines Liefeld puts all over everything, as if the drawing can’t be done as it is. Whose nose does this, unless it’s freezing weather?
Differently-colored noses are preferable if you’re drawing in a goofy cartoony style where the nose is clearly a separate element from the rest of the face:
Muppets with same-color noses always look kind of weird:
Though once the nose doesn’t look like it can be colored with the paint bucket tool, it looks good as the same color:
Maybe it’s because I *do* always have bad allergies and therefore a perpetually red nose, but I like my colorful noses! It also draw attention to them, and I like drawing attention to noses and emphasizing them. It makes them a little more silly and cartooney, adds some colors to the face. And fuck it, I like doing it that way and don’t really have to justify it to anyone.
(I hope you see this as the silly answer it is.)
