Hi all,
i am going to model Master Yoda in his exile on Dagobah.
The model is done in Blender an eventually it will be rendered there as well.

Sorry, should have written some lines before posting the image.
The head was a test with blenders sculpting mode. Since this one is not too likely to the original and the mesh is quite messed up, i will redo it completely from scratch. i just used it too have a comparison for the body size.
THE HEAD AS IT LOOKS NOW, WILL NOT TAKE PART IN THIS CHALLENGE.
The body was completely modelled yesterday, as well was the clothes. so this will take part in the challenge.
i will post some wips today.

my aim is to go for a scene where yoda gets a lesson from qui-gon on dagobah. i guess qui-gon will be by far harder than yoda though....especially when done with blender.
at least sss (fake) is integrated into the renderer now and should help greatly getting some realism into the scene. At least i hope so. I will use only freeware programs to get that scene done.

here is the new head model,
as i said, this one is completely redone from scratch. this time the mesh is quite clean, at least clean enough to work with.

i began sculpting qui gon.
here are the first test for his head. he need some hair transplantation, along with a barber.
i will do the hair adjustment in the final scene.
furthermore there are no textures yet, just plain material, once i´ve done the body and the clothes, i will work on the textures of yoda and quigon. the overall shape of the face needs some more tweaking.

Here is the basemesh. again i messed it up quite a lot. :sad:

i hope one can recognize him a little already. sorry for the weird camera angle...:shrug:

now this is one of the scenes I was sad to see go in the prequel Trilogy - a ghost of Qui-Gon. Would have been nice to see Liam Neeson one last time as the awesome Jedi Master...

Would have been fitting if they had put him in with ROTJ ending as well. Oh well, too bad.

in the books about him and obi-wan they talk so highly about him how powerful he is but in the movies hes nothing more than obi-wans master.

you did a really good job on both yoda and qui-gon i cant wait till there done.
