Default Nose model

I made this nose without any photo reference and i was wondering what do you think about it.... Does it looks like a nose to you?
Pleas leave some comments because i'm kinda new to maya.
Well... not new, but recently i am using it more frequently.

Yeah, it looks like a nose... but it's doesn't look that good though.. the nostrils look weird and the "bridges" on the side look weird also. The topology isn't perfect either.

well it looks like a nose, thats for sure.

topology is the placement of the polygons, have a look in the WIP forum, theres a sticky at the top that has topology examples.

yeah - it needs some work as the others have said - also, the septum (where the nose meets the face) should be less of a right angle. the tip needs to be more rounded and the whole front part of the nose should have its own form - at the moment the side view shows that the profile curve is concave - you rarely have any concave forms on the body.
