Think about the structure of the ear. Usually, the ear is hollow and thin, so you can shade it like the inside of a cylinder or a cup. Fennec fox example with nice, big hollow ears.
It looks like you're also going for ears that droop a little at the top. That's just the corner of the ear folding forward/down a bit.
