In this drawing guide, we will tell you how to draw anime ears. We imagined this lesson as one of the basic guides for those who like to draw anime. We tried to make it as simple and affordable as possible for everyone who wants to try themselves in this beautiful and super popular art style.
When we talk about ear painting, most often we mean the outer ear. Unless of course we create an atlas for anatomy or neurology. In addition to the outer ear, there are also two sections of the organ of hearing and balance, which are called the middle ear and inner ear. We can see the middle and inner ear only with the help of a special device that you could see with ENT doctors, or with anatomical preparation.
Therefore, we will draw the outer ear. The outer ear consists of the auricle and the external auditory meatus. The auricle is a formation of cartilage and skin that forms the visible contours of the ear. The external auditory meatus is a hole in the center of the auricle.
This is actually a very simple lesson. Here we want to show how to draw an ear using three simple lines. First, we outline the outer contour of the auricle. This is a bit like a half heart sign. However, you can see a more vertical bend here.
We add literally two lines to draw the tragus and This is the protruding portion of the cartilage in the center in front of the external auditory opening. Opposite him is an anti tragus. You can also see many other details if you look at your ear in the mirror. However, we try to simplify everything as much as possible for the anime style.
If we look a little more in front, we just repeat the same actions, only everything should look more narrow and compressed vertically. You can independently adjust the shape of the ears to your taste. For example, if you are drawing an elf, you should add sharp tips.
Again, repeat the second step from the previous part, only the lines should be located closer to each other.
We tried to keep a balance between the necessary amount of important information and simplicity in this guide. We are always open for your comments and look forward to your feedback. We welcome any questions you may have.
