How To Draw and Paint Ears (Tutorial) – Anatomy and Tips

In this tutorial I show you how to draw and paint ears. I have broken down the human ear into 5 separate shapes, so that it’s super easy to remember the anatomy. The anatomical parts I am showing you in this video are very simplified and are actually much more complex in reality, but I tried to focus only on the visual aspect and the things that are most important for artists.
I suggest that you do your own studies and fill up a couple of pages in your sketchbook with drawings of ears. This will help immensely in memorizing the anatomy and you’ll soon be able to draw and paint realistic ears from imagination!

If you found this video to be useful, then I’d love to hear your opinion in the comments. Also make sure to give this video a like, that would help my channel a lot!

//In this video I am using Procreate on the iPad Pro, but the techniques and principals are the same for any app and medium.
