Ear colour

What colour/texture do you generally do for the inside of the ear? I've noticed that it's usually done either in bare pink or with white fur (which I've done in the past). This may be an entirely stylistic choice, but I wanted to find out what some of your opinions and preferences are for this little detail.
Thanks!

Depends on the species. For myself I use a light tannish brown (coyote), for bat ears I use gray, for my white folf char I use white.

Basically, on canines, felines, etc. I'll do a light color that matches the fur and put pinkish undertones on it.

For realistic stlye, I usually look at some referance pics and try to copy it. For a more cartoony look, I fill in whatever looks best, even if it isn't realistic.

Ditto.

Mice & bunnies, I use various shades of pink, others get more complex with fur color/texture.

Neat thing with ny own fursonna being avian, I don't have to bother! '<img'>

For me, it depends on the character.  Most of my pictures, I use bare pink, though.

The interior ear colour usually depends on the species I'm drawing. Most often, it's a variation of the critter's body fur colour, but sometimes I tweak it. Usually, there's some white fuzz sticking out from the concave section of the ear.
I'm almost always looking at reference photos of the real-world animal in question when I work. Those photos will offer me my colour selection.


(Anthro leopard. I used a pale yellow for the concavity of the ear, and dark brown for the fuzz sticking out.)


(Anthro panther. Black for the body fur, so blacks/greys for the ear interior.)


(Anthro bobcat. In this case, I used a pale pink inside the ear, darkened with a warm grey. Pale yellow for the fluff peeking out, because it matches the bobcat's scruffy body fur.)
