Viruses can spread through the air in two ways: Inside large droplets that fall quickly to the ground (red); or, inside tiny droplets that float in the air like a fog (gray).

It seems to only be successfully transmitted via the droplet route. Read a more detailed answer here.


Here’s a nose-drawing tutorial for you, Tumblr. 

Noses are tricky. I know there’s a lot of shortcuts and simplifications out there, but I really like working with the actual anatomy. I just find it keeps things more accurate when playing around with different shapes and sizes in various positions. Plus, it can always be simplified after it’s drawn. =)

Hope it’s useful!
