Thinking About Ears

As much as I would like to make realistic ears for Aalish, I must always remember that I am planning on casting her with doll composition slip in plaster slip casting molds. So the ears will have to be simplified. Nevertheless, when I start modeling the ears, I will use a drawing like the one below for reference, showing both ears at the same time.

I have enjoyed reading about modeling the ear details in my new book, Modelling Heads and Faces in Clay, by Berit Hildre.
