This is something I drew just because I love cats’ flatten/airplane ears. In Japan, cats’ ears in this form are called “ika-mimi” meaning “squid ears”.
I added a book & bookband which I drew separately…
And then added some sunlight effect using a photo…
And changed the colour so that it would go along well with the frame colour.
The frame is one of the “off-cuts” frames which I introduced in this post.
This is the first time I tried drawing human skins with a ballpoint pen. At first I wasn’t sure how to deal with the tone gradation of the skins, but I tried to make it as close as possible to the photo reference.
I think it is so far so good.
