I decided to do a little practice in ear sculpting. I find that it is a serious pain to model an ear correctly so that it doesn’t fall into the uncanny valley / look really odd. I followed a couple of tutorials, one in particular was a good starting point: http://www.cgarena.com/freestuff/tutorials/misc/earsmodeling/
My end result was this:
I did deviate a bit from the original image, but as a first attempt I am happy.
This model is forming part of a head modelling project I am working on, so I am not uploading the ear model just yet, though I plan to upload some of the models as I complete it, so check back in a few weeks or drop me a mail and I will let you know when its available:).
