+EARS+ by jinx-star +EARS+ by jinx-star
Ears are certainly one of the most overlooked part of the human features I think. I actually became quite conscience on how I draw/paint ears many years back when I started CGing. Drawing ears are equally addicting as drawing eyes. Probably it's just me. :B

I insist on tossing in some elf ears because they are attractive. :flirty:

Hey, umm... I have a character that has elf ears annnnd I'd like her to wear headphones. I can give her shorter ears, but I'd like her to have the kind that kinda stick out like... the second one down from the top right. But again I'd be ok with shortening them to like... the top middle one. Kinda like the inklings length i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/i…

THIS IS THE MOST HELPFUL THING I'VE EVER SEEN
I always needed to know what the anatomy for elf-like ears looked like.
Thank you.

I've been meaning to put more detail into the ears I draw for my human characters, and this really helps. ^^

This is exactly what I was looking for. Detail. Thanx a bunch bro. If you could make a tutorial on how to draw it out. Youtube or something. That'd be awesome.

No! It's not just you! I get so obsessed with drawing ears and eyes because.... well... I just do!

I think it's because one: Eyes express the MOST emotion and...
two: Ears are the most looked-for for identifying a certain fantasy creature (ex: Elves vs. Humans)

This is soooo helpful, thank you so much!

I also like that you drew the back of an ear...
I was always fascinated with that view cause you don't get to properly look at it very often.

Thank you for this! I have pages upon pages in my sketchbook filled with ears and their relative position to a head/face and this just makes me want to look back through them and attempt at it again.

One can probably find a lot of variety in ears on closer look.
