About the author: Lisa Schindler from

Let's create an ear!

In this tutorial I demonstrate a quick technique on how to sculpt an ear. We will take a short look at the basic anatomy of the ear and cover how to lay out the basic structure of it before moving on to refining the shape and surface.

This technique is demonstrated on an ear modeled to scale, but it can be transferred to any size or shape of any ear you want to sculpt.

I studied at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne and graduated with honors in 2010. Ever since moving to the US the same year I have honed my sculpting skills and thoroughly enjoy "making things". Currently I'm a sculptor for maquette sculptures and I create limited edition resin kits that I sell on my website. And to top it all off nicely I am now having the pleasure of giving back to others interested in sculpture by sharing my techniques with you here on CG Cookie!
