Facial Reference: The Ears by CGCookie Facial Reference: The Ears by CGCookie

Check out and Download the Ears Reference HERE

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

Another Facial structure reference for you guys to use as a resource in your own work. This is something I've seen to help me draw ears and I hope it helps you as well. Ears can be tricky but if you think of them as a hook, y, and bump, it made drawings ears much easier for me.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up aSPECIALROOM to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im SORRY

This is really absolutely fantastic. I really appreciate how you broke it down into forms -- it makes it both easy to remember and effective, and it works just as well for more comicy art that I'm working on as it seems to for the more realistic stuff. Thanks for making this!
