View Full Version : Yoda

This is my second attempt at modelling an organic head, first try ever using polygons to do it. THis is about four hours worth of work here and I know there is a lot more detail but I just want to make sure I got the basic shape down and that I'm headed in the right direction with it. Sorry that you got to link to see the pic but I couldn't figure out how to paste it. Take care.

Looking goog, keep working i won't to see more

yeah looks good, but it's kind of hard to get a feel for it w/o the ears.
15-01-2004, 05:04 AM
Yeah, I haven't thought of how I' m gonna approach the ears yet so that's why there not on as of right now but I totally understand what you mean. I've been working on him so more and here's an updated version. I appreciate you guy's feed back, thanks!
for some reason it reminded me of the Grinch:D it would look really cool with a huge toothy evil grin:D
But it shouldn't be too hard to make it more yoda like, keep going with it

LOL! YEah, I think it's the color map, no textures and that he has no ears also makes him look like the Grinch. Right on, looks like the force is strong with Dr. Seues. I'll keep that in my mind now, thanks!

Be one with model you will, feel the model flowing through you, around you, beneath you, be good soon it will.
Looking good so far, can't wait for more updates.

keep your work going you must...hmmmm.....
lookin totally awesome :)

Alright, your guy's comments are great, thanks for all of them! Here's another quick update, the jedi master now got ears, some eyes and is not as shiny, I think the shiy phong material was a little too hard on a person eyes for just a WIP model. I feel that he needs more detail though.

Wow! your definately off to a fantastic start!
Keep going with this, I'll be keeping my eye on this thead :)

Realy nice Model :)
I'd suggest to stretch his forehead and make the shape more round
if you want to go with the original yoda look ;)

YEah, I know exactly what you mean, the forhead and bridge of the nose have been giving me one hell of a headache, but right now I think I'm getting somewhere, I'll post another pic later though. THanks!
cool, definately looking like yoda now
15-01-2004, 09:45 PM
i like it :)
coming along nicely

Yoda rules, as does your interpretation of him. The mesh is strong with this one.:D
15-01-2004, 10:02 PM
nice model man.... it really seems yoda... keep going
15-01-2004, 10:05 PM
Not much change here, few more wrinkles, fixed the ear up a bit and lifted the forhead. Still feels like something missing though.
15-01-2004, 10:06 PM
how are you planning on doinmg his wiry, sparse hair? (don't forget to put plenty in the ears :D )
15-01-2004, 10:34 PM
YEah, the hair is got me kinda stumped too :???: but I have a few ideas. I can use paint effects to create the hair however that'll force me to convert the mesh into a NURBS and then I'll have to deal with a larger file size and tessellation issues. I was also thinking of using alpha maps to make the hair. I don't know, when all else fails, improvise and think outside the box. The ear does need work, thanks!

a friend of mine that is a big fan of starwar's series said that his nose are not that squared, that it need more roundness.. i dunno if he are right, but above i attached a pic... hope it help...
16-01-2004, 01:57 AM
YEah, totally, I see what your friend is getting at. The nose, which I thought was going to be the easiest thing of all to model, is turning out to be the most stubborn but I'll make sure to fix it so that this Yoda will be a just model for Star Wars fans. Tell your friend thanks!

Now you are going well.

Alright, reworked the forehead, bridge of nose and extended the ears a bit. Still needs a little more adjusting but I'm burned out for the night. Experimented with a new way of making wrinkles that I just learned and made things much easier.
16-01-2004, 02:49 PM
very good work so far. :)
16-01-2004, 09:53 PM
The forehead looks much better, but i think the bridge of the nose is too straight.

The eyes are all wrong, try and find some pictures of Albert Einstein, he was the original model for the eyes, you might get closer that way.
