How to draw a human’s ear (+ coloring)

Sometimes it’s hard to draw some parts of the body. The child tries, but he or she can’t do it right. One say, that eyes and ears are the most difficult parts of human body for drawing. They  can be different on your drawing or some of the details can be uneven.

If your child draws  someone’s profile, it’s necessary to draw an ear. Teach him or her to draw one of the head’s parts in your free time to make your child be proud of himself or herself.

You need:
1

Basis

Draw a basis which will help us to draw an ear. This helps to draw the correct details and not to go beyond the borders.

2

Upper part

The upper part looks like a circle, that’s why draw this figure. A circle occupies the half of the rectangle and doesn’t  go beyond its borders. Use your compass to make the figure of a necessary size.

Lower part

The lower part is much smaller. Draw it in the form of an elongated oval  which is applied to the circle.

Connection

Connect parts of the ear  with the help of curved lines to create an outline.

Connection

The lines are not the same in curves and size.  It’s because the ear’s sides are rough.
