In this drawing lesson, we’ll show the drawing process for anime ears. We envisioned this tutorial to be one of our most basic tutorials for people who love drawing anime. We made it as easy and cost-effective as it is for everyone who is interested in trying their hand with this gorgeous and well-known art form.

When we speak of the ear, usually we refer to the ear’s outer part. If we don’t, we’ll create an atlas of anatomy or neurology. Alongside the external ear, there are two parts of the organ of balance and hearing, which are known as the middle ear and the inner ear. The inner and middle ear through a specific device that can be seen by ENT specialists or anatomical preparation.

Thus, we draw the ear’s outer. The outer ear comprises the auricle as well as the auditory external meatus. The auricle forms a structure made of cartilage and a skin layer that is the visible outline that surrounds the ears. The external auditory meatus is an opening located in the middle of the auricle.

Step 1

It’s actually an easy lesson. We will show the drawing of an ear with three lines. The first step is to outline the contours of the Auricle. It’s a little like the half-heart sign. You can however see the vertical angle here.



Step 2

Two lines are added in order to create the tragus. it is the protruding section of cartilage located at the center, just in front of the auditory opening that is external to it. To his left, there is an anti-tragus. It is also possible to see other things if you look into your ear with a mirror. But, we strive to make everything as simple as possible in an anime style.


Step 1

If we glance a bit closer to the front, we repeat the same steps but everything will appear smaller and more compressed vertically. You can alter the shape of your ears according to your preference. For example, if we draw an elf it is recommended to add sharp tips.


Step 2

Repeat steps 2 and 3 from the previous step, however, the lines need to be closer to one another.


We attempted to maintain an equilibrium between the required quantity of essential information and the simplicity of this guide. We’re always willing to hear your feedback and would love to hear feedback. We would love to hear any questions you might have.
