Better, much better.....just think that yoda seems a little 2 fat and just like bobalie said, seems a little younger than he is

But very good now

The skin color looks great now. I do agree with Gamester though;
the head looks a little flat.

When 900 years old you are, look as good you will not!



But aye, he needs more definition on his brow, such as winkles in addition to the funky surface that is Yoda's forehead.

Other than that, I agree that grey wisps of hair will do it, too.

I agree with al of you guys so there's no argument there, i wanted to put some grey hairs on him, but it was already very late like 1 o'clock in the evening/ night and the alarmclock is set to 6 o'clock so needless to say it was to late to be doing that. it would also mean that i would rush it and f#ck it all up.
I personally don't think he looks to flat, but i agree that he looks to fat, i think that this is easily solved by pulling the vertices around the cheekbone down and back, to get that skinny look.
The aging part could in my opinion be solved by pulling down the lower eyelid and make it more oval.
then make the browridge more arched, the grey hair would obviously help of course.
then there are the aging/ liver-spots on the top of his head(see attached image), i think i'm going to solve that by using a layered shader
And the last part to make yoda older is something i don't know how to do for sure and that is the dimples around his cheekbone and on his upperlip, i think i will model it because i suck bigtime in texturing let alone painting one by hand in photoshop.
in time i want to improve my skill in texturing, but at the moment my texturingskill isn't good enough to make something that realistic, so there you have it i'm not perfect :lol:

Great stuff, you have got a lot of character going on with the face for such a low res model. Also, have you got any plans to make the rest of him and give him his saber.

looking forward to more on this.

I've just started with the body, i will later adjust the head when everything is done so i can look at it with a clear view.
I'm modeling his actual body and i will later use cloth to give him some clothes

Body modeling is looking good so far. I think you should decrease the fur size and make it a little greyer.

It's becoming really nice

Just want to give you an advice for your body modeling......don't forget that yoda is known by is great mind strength not the body strengh, but don't forget that he is a jedi and he got a very strong training so don't make him to slim

thanks for the comments and advice guys and you are probably right echo red about the fur i rushed it a little bit:bandit:
I am a little bit further with the body, but there's one thing that concerns me a little bit and that's the proportions.
It looks like his body is to small (or head to big it's just the way you look at it:p ).
But when i load a picture in photoshop yoda's body is approx. 2,5 /3 head's tall in maya i'm about 3/3,5 heads high with the body.
Maybe it's just that i haven't moddeled his claws and paws yet and not yet made his clothes, which will give him more volume.
or that he's not standing straight up(these things happen when you're 900 years old)
i've attached a smooth and rough model

Hehehehhe yap the body seems not to be in the same scale that the head, probably the cloth will make it more real
