That being said, these are some really awesome ears. I did a first draft, and passed them around to friends, as well as doing a gorgeous photoshoot on Flickr with them, but there was a glitch in the mesh underneath the hair where the ear met skin that I just couldn't live with. So they went back into the workshop that is Zbrush, got re-tooled, and came out greatly improved. I took some tips from Selos Dae on the texture and tried to add a bit more depth to the shading on the new ones, and matched the tones by eye to popular skin tones ^_^ These... I am happy with!!
Yeah. Yeah I know. I'll put em out when I'm finished with skin tones XD And they'll have some friends. I realized folks who make elfin/fairy/drow ears don't get serious with variety, and just put out their interpretations. Well, you're looking at the smallest size (Pixie) in this picture, but there are Elfin ears and the absolutely enormous Drow ears. I'll be working on jewelry for them too :D Can you tell I'm really excited?
So why aren't I working on cobwebs, spider themed things and pumpkins? I just don't know, but at least you're obsessed with ears now too.
