Are there any tutorials on making floppy ears (like dog ears)? If not, can someone help me out with an easy way to make cute flopped ears?
edit: I guess I should have mentioned that I don't want them to be stiff, for instance I want them to flop back if I lay down or something. So making them entirely out of foam is not something I want to do.
Okay you guys...
I want a new methed of makeing a head, but here are my delemas.
My normal methead is mesh with foam over it for shape. I have found this meathed is not the best as the mesh tends to break very easily after only a year or so. It takes alot of work to use this methed and if I'm going to spend that much time on something I want it to last.
The foam block is something I do not wish to do for two reasons. One, cost of materials, just to expensive for me considering I never sell my suits anyway. I won't spend that much money if it won't get me anywhere. Two, how hot those things are, they are called toaster heads for a reason, and I overheat easy...
Balacalva (bleh spelling) is definitly not what I want. I like the aspect of a moveing jaw, and the whole reason I like mesh is because a movieng jaw works fluently with it. This methed just dosn't work correctly with a movieng jaw, it retricts it horribly, in my experence.
So I'm really at a loss. I was thinking I would try paper mache and foam, but really this would prove semi-useless as any sort of presperation would probably destroy the paper mache. I'd like to try metal mesh again, and maybe paper mache over it, but I don't know how comfertable it would be. Spray foam would work, but then I would probably just get pissed at molding, plus I hear it can make one sickly.
So what are my options? Are there better metheds?
