Default Crae McShae - New Pic For You and Assistance Is Needed For Me :)

Hi gang!

Well, I'm proud to say that I've managed to add a little more detail to my character but problem is, his ear is kinda, well, gooby. Here's the thing. He's kind of a cartoony character but a stiff looking ear would look worse than one that is not. I'm thinking of going with some dynamics here to make his ear floppy. What do you guys think? look at the picture adn tell me what you think. In the meantime...

well... to come back to the stiffness... I would first try to tweak it more...it shouldn't be so hard...just look at you own ear and than try to model it more organic

it's all about tweakin' if you want to get the result of the model that you want...

Sorry about posting 3 times, Mr. Jango. I think my computer got hung up and windows got stuck and wouldn't close so that explains that. Sorry for any problems.

As for the dude, I'm not quite sure what I'll need to tweak but I may just start, kinda, willy nilly-like, tweak til the cows come home and see where we are then. Thanks, tho, Ransick, for your help. One other thing, the mouth... I managed to get the shape I wanted and I have a "hole" for the mouth where I want things to be. Thing is, does it look capable of being animated? I haven't added his beady eyes yet (those wil be little spheres with blend shapes) and I haven't added eyebrows either but those are next. Another thing is how do I close the inside up without making him look too Muppet-y? I'm still debating on whether to give him tonsils, a tongue and teeth since he has no dialogue and he won't have too much need for a tongue, although he'll have a few interesting facial expressions.
