Engraving style ear illustration

  • Save

Study of an ear. I redrew this from an example of an etching of an ear and it helped a ton to get a better feel for how to arrange lines and handle line weight and variation to convey light and shadow. I plan to use it as part of an editorial style illustration on Simple Thread's upcoming website redesign.

This is the second drawing I've done in this style and I'm already getting much faster. Also ears are just as much fun to draw as hands.
