About This Class

In this class we'll focus our attention on drawing the Ear. Just like any other facial feature, theres an easy and simple way to break down the specifics of the ear. We'll explore the ear as separate individual shapes, and ultimately put them together to create the entire form. This class is meant to complement my other class in Head Drawing which you can see HERE 

Although not as much of a focus in portraits as the eyes, nose or mouth, the ear is still an absolute necessity in any portrait drawing and should not be ignored!

Mark Hill

Fine Artist

I'm a traditionally trained artist currently residing in New York City. I specialize in traditional mediums from graphite and charcoal to oil painting. I've studied in several places in Southern California, and recently finished my studies in New York at the Grand Central Atelier. I've taught everything from drawing to painting for several years, both publicly and privately. Looking to share what I know and help others on Skillshare!
