Drawing ears! Holy moly these are weird shapes. I’ll be working with graphite again today, studying the form of an ear to see what we can learn and apply to larger portrait drawings. Work from a photo of your own ear, or follow along using this reference image: https://bit.ly/2XqT0Sg

Today, I’m working with:

  • White Sketch Paper (Hahnemuhle “Skizze 190”)
  • Graphite Pencil (HB, 4B)
  • Carbon Pencil (in case we need something darker)
  • Kneaded and Rubber Erasers

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • How to draw in graphite
  • Shading techniques
  • Creating texture
  • Linework
  • Subtle value control
