View Full Version : hints for modelling ears?

01 January 2007, 08:13 PM
Im tryin to make a semi realistic ear. but dont matter how many ref pics i use i can never quite get the details of inside a ear. I even try to stylise it but it never seems to turn out right. any hints on the subject?

No hints, really. Ears arent actually that hard to do, just have to understand the shape. Borrow someone's ear for a few minutes, and examine it carefully. Thats it. :)

o thanks one more thing. any paticular type of modelling better suited for ears. im poly modelling the head right now. but im not afraid to use nurbs if that makes it easier for ears :)
