· Drawing the EarsAfter drawing the entire face, next are the ears. The overall shape of the ear is an oval/ellipse. Drawing the ear may be a bit challenging to some because of its many intricate parts, but with patience & persistence you can master the ear just as the other features. In this lesson we will focus on the front, side, & back views of the ear.
Anatomy of the Ear
Take a moment to study and examine the ear before proceeding with the next portion of the lesson.
Below is a drawing of the front view of the ear. Take your time with this lesson & study the shapes.
A. Start with drawing an oval slightly tilted. Give it some dimension, or better yet, make it look like a chip! Begin drawing your guidelines (half & half) & this time draw points where indicated (these are very important).
behind the L curve you’ve just drawn.
Below is a drawing of the side view of the ear. This one is very similar to the one above. The only difference is the angle of the ear.
A. Start with drawing an oval. Begin drawing your guidelines; just as above in the last segment, draw points where indicated.
In the last part of the lesson we well draw the back of the ear. This one is not as challenging as the previous two. Let’s get started.
v Key Points to Remember-The front view of the ear starts with a tilted oval (think of a chip).
-Think of a bowl or a pie when drawing the back of the ear, sideways.
-The ear has many intricate parts; study them, the more you do the easier it will be to draw.
- Don’t be hard on yourself & have fun!
