Based on the Nefertiti bust by Thutmose in 1345 B.C.E. for the r/blender February 2020 contest, "Famous art pieces". Advice is welcome!
aubrie OOOH I didn't realize this was based on a famous pre-existing bust...I apologize. In that case the ear and the neck look on point. Keep doing what you're doing 😅
theluthier Thank you, Kent! :) Hearing from you made this all worth it. I'm absolutely open to feedback, and grateful for yours!
The broken ears were an attempt to match the real-life ancient Egyptian sculpture: https://images.csmonitor.com/csmarchives/2009/11/article_photo1_43.jpg?alias=standard_900x600nc
But I'm glad to learn the names for the parts of the ear and get your take on it!
Excellent work, Aubrie! I appreciate you tagging the courses you learned from :)
If you're open to advice, I'll point out that the ear and neck. The "upper outter" corner of the ear seems notably off anatomically. Almost like a chunk is missing from the helix / scapha and there's little to resemble the triangular fossa or anithelix.
As for the neck, the sternocleidomastoid definition is a touch too strong and thin imo.
Overall these are small notes though. The general appearance of the face (most important part) looks awesome!
Thank you, theluthier, for making these courses that helped me!
