maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatte.., you crafty bugger, you've given us the best angle on the ear. We all know it looks like a job done by a plastic surgeon that was pissed and thought he was doing a breast construction. Come on maaate, give us the side view.

seriously, looks 100% better, though i am curious to see how it is attached, remember there is very little in skin surface that is actually attatche the ear. seek and ye shall find, or feel and ye shall find.

the texture..? looking goood..! Better you than me, I'd spend at least a month trying to do what you have done, I guess next, instead of the mirror or the books, feel your own ear and how it is attached to your head, I just did to see if it works (it could be a sign of madness, which if so, disregard everything I ever say) and it seems to be appropriate in 'seeing' how little cartilage is used to attach the ear, not much that's for sure. I can only say it is 100% better and the texture on the other jpeg is great.

cheers

Thanks.
Here is your side veiw Mirek
Have only attached the two models together and it will take another hour or so to make it look good.

I spent a few hours the other day studying on the shape of the ear and getting about 10 reference pics and i finally made sumthing that looks good (In my opinion)

Apart from the Lack of the ear hole this is basically what it will look like.

C&C Welcome

fantastic mate, give it a fraction more crease under the lobe (if it fits your thinking) , looks great, really.., ::attn: maaaaaaate

make the crease come in from behind., I think that would be best. these are just suggestions my friend.

Hey Some Guy

Yeah the ear looks stuck on unfortunately. I went thru a phase 3 years back where mine had the same look. The previous version of your ear was actually closer. The inner branches of the ear are however too thick and are not quite correct in their placement.

The face itself needs more rounding out at the front as it lools like shes been hit very hard. I have red penned areas for improvement to start on. Proportions are way out in a lot of places. She has no bridge on her nose either thats causing that flat look. The nose looks way too long as well and at this 3/4 perspective view she has no features on the other side, this looks like a side view.

will attach some bits for you later...

Jay
