Ear Construction (Plate 33).

The female ear is small. The top roll of flesh A, called the " helix," fades away into hollow of flesh at E, at concha. There is a swelling at point C, the " anti-helix," which comes into prominence when the back is three-quarter view. The fold at A continues down until it flattens into the " lobule " at B.

A slight swelling at G, " anti-tragus," is opposite another swelling at F, " tragus," the opening between somewhat following the outside shape. There is a slight depression at D.

The outline of the concha is seen supporting the mass of the ear on to head at H, the diagram being a back and side view of the head.

On the left of the Plate the ear is shown in full side view. Observe the formation of blocking lines, the interlacing of large and small onion shapes. These can be used for any position of the ear. In the back view the concha shows to

a large extent, and is slightly overlapped by top roll, helix A, and part of the lobule B.

Mouth, Construction (Plate 34).

Blocking lines for full front view of the mouth would be two interlacing onions with inside knobs of flesh, in decreasing sizes as they near the corners of the lips (Fig. 1). The middle knob of flesh is circular in shape but without its upper end, this not being required for the shape of the lips. The remaining knobs are oval in shape, two on each side of

the top lip and the same number on the lower. Note the decreasing sizes and positions.

The upper lip is longer than the lower, and is firmly defined in outline, merging into soft shadows at the corners. The lower lip is much softer in outline except at K, where it should be strongly marked. The upper lip has two high points A and A, always kept sharp and clear in drawing the outline of mouth.

Owing to their fleshiness, the lips stand high and have an undulating outline (see Fig. 2). When lips are thin they are drawn on exactly the same principle (see M). The corners of the lower lip turn sharply-into the upper Up, as at C.

Fig. 3 expresses by shaded lines the fleshy character of the lips, their positions being plainly seen. G represents blocking lines for profile lips slightly upturned. F shows lips slightly turned downwards, showing less of the under portion of upper lip. H is the side view in normal position.
