How to Draw Ears

Ears can be drawn with varying degrees of complexity. The drawings provided here are a simplified version that should serve your purposes. The fact of the matter is, the vast majority of viewers cannot recall the intricate details of ears because they are one of the few body parts outside of their personal view and are quite often covered up on other people. Once again, the ear rests between the eye line and the nose line and generally extends the length of this space.

Below are sketches showing you how to draw ears from both the side view and front view.

Step 1: Side View - Begin with oval shape, add curved lines.

Step 2: Side View - Add curves and shade opening for depth.
