Realistic Canine Ear Tutorial

.:Bullet:. Patreon Patreon .:Bullet:. Patreon  

New tutorials every Tuesday! Don't feel like waiting? Patrons receive all tutorials immediately as well as private tutorials.

Requested ear tutorial.

Main issue I see with ears is general shape, missing inner ear fur, and ear size. When in doubt, photo references always help.

Sorry for asking, but do you have a reference to just how the ears actually move and bend? I'm wanting to do some 3d modelling, but I can't find any reference anywhere.
