I have been lurking around this site for about a year now with sadly insufficient skill to add anything useful. I am working on a stylized model of a child that I would like to use in a short animation but I am having difficulty attaching the ears without making the topology go crazy.
I have been through several tutorials on CG Cookie, including Jonathan Williams topology series. I’ve combed the forums and found many posts about topology but it seems everyone skips the ears. I think I have decent topology for the face (red, green, blue & yellow) but once I
attach the ears, wow, (see purple, orange, pink).
I have tried reattaching those ears a dozen times but every time I make it a little worse, so it’s time to reach out for help. This is very much a work in progress, the proportions are off and it needs detail work but until I can address the topology issue there’s little point in tweaking. The ear’s construction seems to be the root of the problem or perhaps my entire mesh is wonky. Any advice would be appreciated.
I tried to attach my blend file but for some reason it uploads and then doesn’t show up in the attachment manager. I do not get any error messages, it just says progress 100 % and nothing shows up. Sadly, I cannot use links yet so I can’t use paste all either. Unfortunately, I don’t see how anyone can help if they can’t look at the file. Suggestions in this regard also appreciated.
