If you’re using the loomis approach to lay in the head, you will find the ear somewhere in the bottom back quadrant of the side plane.
Ok, so lets take a look at the mess we’ve got going on inside the ear. To help simplify what appears like just a bunch of random squiggly shapes, always remember “WHY?”… or
See the resemblance? The helix, or the ring around the perimeter of the ear is the hook of the question mark. The ear lobe is the dot. And the Antihelix is the Y on the inside. Those 3 pieces take up most of the real estate of the ear and will get you almost a complete ear.
Now, all these little shapes make up the eye, but it’s important to first understand the simplified structure of the eye. These simplified forms should show through all the details. The brow ridge can be simplified into a block. The front plane represents the forehead, and the bottom plane is the roof of the socket. Of course, the eyeball is… a ball.
From the side you can see that the eyeball is deep inside the socket and the brow ridge acts as an awning to protect the sensitive eye from falling things like, rain, dust, asteroids, and bird poop…
