@ emo; no I won't

@roco 5000; thanks and I haven't even noticed the difference between episode2 and episode 3 yoda

@gamester;I've made a lighter render just for you:hug:
(off topic; when i rendered the previous /darker images it looked quite good and i could see al the detail but when i look at the image on another monitor the picture is to dark.
i have a samsung syncmaster 940 bf monitor(tft), could you or anybody else tell me why this is ?)
And yes i want to do the body also, i'm even thinking of animating him, make him play around with his lightsaber a little bit

I personally don't think that the dome of his head goes quite that high . . . what do you think guys? Regardless, it's miles away from what I could ever do right now, so I shouldn't critisize
Good job! If you want a really easy animation, just have him meditating

i prefer the one with narrower eyes and teeth showing, here's some pics for you:





i know those 3 hav all the darker look of "i'm gonna lighsabre your ass off, come and get it" instead of the crazier lighter yoda, but i got the feeling of darker yoda from your earlier ones

The modeling looks great, but Yoda's skin is more so a dirtier green than a pure green and I bet if you used fur, you'd get some good hair going.

@roco;
thanks for the pictures but I already have those images except, for the desktop one.
(If you look carefully to the head of that first image you posted you will see that when you split the head in two, yoda has like two different faces it looks very good )
@gamester;
thank you and i did a layer render with ambient occlusion and a beauty layer both with mental ray
@ acid44; thanks for the tutorial, and appreciate the critique
@bobalie;Thanks for your comment, and i disagree with you about you could not critisize my work because you(think you) cannot do it.
I posted the image here so that maybe someone could spot something i didn't see and maybe as doubtfull as it is( i am a slowwww learner) i will learn something, so that i will be better at the end.
@ echo red;
About the skin; i know it isn't the right skin colour i actually tried the mental ray skin shader, but suffice to say that it wasn't a succes:headbang:, so it will probably will be a blinn with some procedural textures and a bump map
About the hair; i don't know if i will you use hair or fur i think i will try both on see what looks best.
anywho thanks for your comments.
a little remark on the side;
Making yoda proves much more difficult than i originally anticipated every reference image i have from yoda looks different.
I'm trying to model yoda like a mix between the 'dark' yoda and the 'crazy light' yoda so i need to tweak the model some more with work and all i will probably start with the body in the weekend if it will go as planned anyways.
A little tip for people who are just starting with modeling of characters; delete half of your character and add a mirrored smooth proxy to the remaining half, so you will get a cleaner model i've attached an image which explains this a little bit more

the only thing i ment was that when you look at th right and left half of the face there are slight differences, so that when you would cut the face in the middle and copied and mirrored left and attache this to the left side and did the same for the right side you would get two different faces :lol:
I've edited the rightside of the face quickely in photoshop(so it looks crappy but you"ll get the general idea(i hope) )

He looks really good, and I really hope not to offend, but he looks . . . childish? I'm not sure why, but he looks very young. You know Yoda, hes like 900 years old lol. Maybe its the lack of old whispy hairs? What do you guys think?

EDIT***: as an edit, and looking at the pic, I defintely think thta its the hair you need. GO on!
