yoda
Hi guys,

I'm currently modeling yoda(from starwars ).
I'm not nearly finished yet, but i like the eyes already,especially since i only used procedural textures.
I want to use the mental ray skinshader and i know this will be really (bliep, bliep) knowing mental ray shaders:p
I want to model the big creases in his head, but i want to texture the small ones, if someone has any idea how to do this to get the best results i would appreciate it .
Any other advice is welcome of course.
cheers

yes your right about the mouth, i need to make some edges hard because i smoothed the rough model, create the mouth opening, make some teeth etc.
but thanks for your comment.

Thxs for the compliments guys.
I still need to tweak some thingsand add some hair of course
Maybe i"ll get around to it tonight but maybe in the following week.
I've added an ambient light to the scene so that the overall image is a little brighter

wow, that looks good! i'm gonna keep an eye on this one!

kinda off topic:
any-one know why in episode III they made yoda look younger and different than episode II? its something thats been bugger me for ages!
The only excuse i can think of is that the force in general is stronger and yoda feeds off the force, so it makes him better, just like when we eat a healthier diet!?!? (as well as new technologies in CGI stuff)

Very cool really.....just change the background or the lights intensity, cause Yoda always was the simbol of light and your image is to dark for that.....just a critic

Keep doing it :attn:

Are you going to do the body?

Best Regards
