Back to the Basics | Ears Study

I’m still working on continuing my anatomy study from my course with Aaron Blaise. The top portion of this image was all done through the course, while the bottom six ear paintings were all done as self assigned homework. I studied the bottom ears from images that I found on Google, and instead of doing them in color, I decided to just focus on a black and white study. The rendering isn’t that fantastic, simply because I’m not that great at shading ears just yet, due to the complex forms. I also didn’t focus a whole lot on rendering, because the main point I wanted to get out was the study of just figuring out how to draw ears.

So yeah, I hope that you guys like how these all turned out, and I look forward to starting the next course study on learning how to draw “Mouths”! 🙂

P.s. the head on the top right isn’t mine. I actually took a screen shot of it during the course to use for the study like Aaron Blaise was doing during the course. I wanted to be sure that I followed along each step of the way! ^^
