The results from my survey are in! I'm very pleased to say that I will be able to make a good amount of you happy with the ones that were picked, because a couple of designs stood above the rest. The results made your preferences crystal clear, and the ones I had to make were obvious.
To those who missed having my smallest ear, I'm pleased to say that the size labeled "Vulcan" did very well, with almost 60% of the respondents saying they wanted to see them made!
However, the true star of the survey results was one that got everyone excited. From a rough concept submitted by Aiorii, these blossomed into being chosen by an overwhelming majority. With a full 40% making it their first choice out of seven, I just had to make the curly tipped ears!
They have come to life! These ears are just adorable, with a good helping of whimsy and playfulness. It was quite obvious they were a hit and I just hope I fulfilled your hopes and expectations. With so many people feeling passionate about seeing these made, I felt a bit nervous! Luckily for me though, the shape came easily and turned out to be the one that gave me the least trouble. I love how they came out, and I've been wearing them around my build spot feeling so cute.
But, now for a twist. I said that I would only do two styles. I said that, but what the survey results told me is that you guys really were hungry for more. Two other styles did very well, the long "Fae" ears had a good number of responders, and the absurdly long "Poison" ears seem to have an impassioned following. Using my brain thing, I realized it wouldn't be too difficult to reconcile these two shapes and merge them into one amazing super shape.
People just kept wanting longer and longer and so here you are! I built these alongside the old poison ear to compare and align them so everything you loved about the old ones will be reborn. They're just as large and have a similar angle, but have a dramatically better shape. While my sketch of the Poison ear had a downward curve, I brought the dip and upturned tip in from the fae style. The long trail keeps the shape feeling delicate and realistic and kept it from being too unwieldy.
These are the last of the basic elven ears I'm planning on doing. I haven't ruled out, however, doing a few completely new ears. As I mentioned before, people seem to be really excited at the prospect of semi transparent finned mer ears, or torn and chewed up elf ears. If I do those, they will not be in the same glorious spectrum of shapes and will mostly likely be in just one or two varieties each. I just have to decide if I'm going to start doing jewelry first or after! But don't worry, jewelry is definitely going to happen.
