How To: Draw a realistic ear in Photoshop

Draw a realistic ear in Photoshop

StephanieValentin teaches you how to draw a realistic ear in Adobe Photoshop. You create a new document of 1300x1900 pixels and then create 9 layers named L00, L01 and so on until L08. The first layer should be black. On Layer 01 use a soft round brush with a white color, 100 pixels width and 50% opacity. This is the base sketch of the ear. You then apply a gaussian blur of 30 pixels. For Layer 02 you use a soft round brush with a white color, 50 pixels width and 50% opacity. Apply a gaussian blur of 20 pixels. For Layer 03 use a soft round brush with a white color, 200 pixels width and 10% opacity. You then merge layers L00+L01+L02+L03 with Ctrl+E. Use the soft eraser with a width of 75 pixels and 100% opacity to clean the edges. On Layer 04 use a soft round brush with a white color, 200 pixels width and 10% opacity. Apply a gaussian blur of 35 pixels. On Layer 05 use a soft round brush with a black color, 200 pixels width and 10% opacity. On Layer 06 use a soft round brush with a white color, 100 pixels width and 20% opacity. On Layer 07 use a soft round brush with a black color, 45 pixels width and 5% opacity. Apply a gaussian blur of 15 pixels. On Layer 08 use a soft round brush with a white color, 100 pixels width and 2% opacity. Create a new adjustment layer using a Gradient Map, as shown in the video.
