Title: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on August 23, 2009, 11:07:27 am
some1 asked for a yoda model on the general forums page. im not a big starwars fan but no1 can deny that yoda is a badass little dude. if the guy who wnats it cant use it thats ok im still gonna pick at it. heres where im at now. crits r welcomed as always.


Edit: i just posted in the other forum topic about the model and i figured i might as well show a wireframe. i know its not great especially around the mouth. but here it is

Beautiful edge loops on the model

That does look very nice!
The issue with the mouth is that it's much too flat.  It should curve like the rest of the head!
Otherwise it's really looking pretty good!  Keep it up.

well i havent worked on this in a while but im back at it. i changed alot of stuff. i think its coming together now. i think i pretty much reconstructed his face but it will looks like how it was before. i think once i get all these damn loops figured out i can rework the detail.

edit: little update. i think i have the jawline in place. i dont think it will be this prominent when im done. but i think i have it in the right place.

heres a render with color and lights.

edit: just rendered a front view. i dont think it looks right. i think i need to widen his face. and definetly round him out.

edit2: idid the back of the head and i did the neck although i rendered this a little premiture. the material isnt goiung to be in the final but i just wanted 2 see what it would kind of look like. and i did make it lighter. here it is

i think i might be done for 2nite. this is my progress as of now. i rendered these in scaline cause it only takes a few seconds. i think i might have a hard time with the chest. cause i dunno what yodas chest would look like. at 1st i was going to make him really old be now i might make him younger. im not sure yet. anyways heres my renders.

edit: heres the wireframe
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: hihosilver on September 09, 2009, 06:01:44 am
My only criticism right now is about general proportions of his face.  Are you using a reference image?
His face appears to be a bit taller and less condensed than what I've seen in references.  The ridge on the top of his head is a bit too straight and exact as well.

As for the chest, my advice would be to skip the chest (since he's so old it would be nasty anyways)
I'd do enough to fit a robe onto and have no gaps, but I don't think you need to go any further.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on September 09, 2009, 09:03:28 pm
yea the front doesnt look right at all im going to have 2 figure out a good way to scale his face out. heres the reference i used. so i think the shape of his head is pretty dead on.

edit: i think i fixed his head. i saw that too but im going to tweak more later.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: Jdez on September 10, 2009, 10:22:43 am
That's amazing how close the reference image you got him! I am really looking forward to the finished product!
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: hihosilver on September 13, 2009, 02:37:11 am
Looks good!  My only crit is that the chin should be less sharp.  It looks to me like, in the reference image he doesn't have too much of a jaw, which makes sense at his age (the skin would hang down a little more a be less tight.)  Keep up the good work!
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: Jdez on September 13, 2009, 04:04:43 am
Q: where is his other eye? or did you purposely leave it out?
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on September 14, 2009, 02:06:32 am
yea i havent even messed with the chin a whole lot. and im not so sure how im going to make the saggy skin. i just figured if i get a solid shape. i could go any way i want with it. i still have to tweak the brow and do the lips too.

i make the eyeball before im ready to do the eyesocket. this way i can get some depth and shape. i pretty much just use it like a ruler. but i always model on the left side. then i mirror it then join them to make 1 model. but the sphere isnt even a mesh but all i would have to do is mirror the sphere and it would go in the right place on the right side.

i started on the light saber partly because im a little stuck on the body and ill have to get it done sooner or later. and many many thanks to odp04y for that tutorial. it will help me alot. ill be back in a few days with more of it done.

thanks for the crits.

well its been awhile since ive even looked at this. but i tried my hand at texturing (i failed miserably, but ill try again soon) then i tried a bit of morph targets. it didnt take too long to figure out. mind you i didnt try hard at the morphs i just moved his face a little bit. anyway heres a video of what i did. i plan on finishing this little guy and actually make something cool with anim8or.

i figured i would just revive this topic instead of making a new one.

oh yea heres the link to my little animation



edit:

i reworked the jaw almost completely. redid the lips and ran my loops a different way. i cut out a few loops and im going to try and figure out a way to get the detail i had before. heres a wireframe and a render.

Why is there only one eye?

you gotta learn how to read dude. some1 already asked that question in the same post. and its only a 1 page post.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on March 17, 2010, 02:49:16 pm
welli think im going to try and make an animation. i have an idea in my head and it involves darth vader as well. so im going to try and model him 2. i really dont like the helmet so i might redo it i dont know. ill do the mask next and see what it looks like. anyway heres what i did.



EDIT: well its a good thing i wasnt too happy with the outcome. i just lost the file.

**SAVE YOUR WORK OFTEN!!**
 (or atleast once)

EDIT2: well heres a new helmet. and i think its alot better than that 1st one. i ran the loops in the oposite direction, which i should have done in the 1st place, but you live and u learn. so heres my new helmet. its kind of hard to see because its black. i need figure out reflections i think. anyway here it is.

great work ,the force will be strong in this one
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on March 18, 2010, 04:19:57 pm
thanks. but i think theres a force that doesnt want me to do this. i almost had the mask done and anim8or crashed on me. so... i had to redo that too. im not a huge starwars fan, ive seen i think all of the old movies and the 1st of the new ones. but im sure some1 here is a fan. so if you think i should go in a different direction with the vader helm please let me know. pretty much all of my references are different styles of the mask. so im kind of eyeballing it and following 2 different styles. anyway heres where im at.

edit: i was gonna stop but i guess i just couldnt. i did a little more of the mask and ill have to change it a bit. but heres a render i just did.

its hard to make it black cause u cant see anything. so i picked a lighter color just so u can see a bit of the details.

Really well done!
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on March 19, 2010, 04:18:37 pm
well i got a bit more done and i dont think i like it. but it wasnt easy. and i might just leave it how it is im not too sure. but then again if i make the right materials and whatnot it might look ok. anyway heres some renders.

edit: well i did a black material. and i think it wont look 2 bad. i just need to have alot of lights around him. ill have to make a good material though and ill probably need you guys's help on that.

edit2: made a head spin thing.



edit3: i went ahead and did yoda too.

You've got some really nice work there, rellik! =] I think the only thing wrong with DV is that his head is too thin. Maybe scale it out just a bit.

Although I'm not a Star Wars fan, so what do I really know? :P
Keep it up!

I'm pretty sure most of us saw that coming a mile away

And really good job on the model and look forward to seeing this project move forward.

ive been trying my hand at texturing and im horrible at it. im wondering if any1 wants to try thier hand at texturing my yoda head so i can get a few ideas on even how i should do it.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: 3Dgeek11 on April 25, 2010, 05:02:15 am
I could try it in a little bit. :P

If you want. ;) I'm not that great, of course.

Post by: daniel99 on April 25, 2010, 10:43:03 pm
Pretty good. I love when people keep in mind the anatomy of characters. This way, the model is improved a lot. Judging from the models, I guess you also drawing. Someone sayd a long time ago, if you make 3d animation, you should be able to do 2d animation first. And I'm pretty sure that you do. Am I wrong ? :)
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on April 26, 2010, 06:48:17 pm
actually i really cant draw that well at all. if i have a reference to look off of and basically copy it, sometimes it will turn out ok. but if i just sit down and start drawing its horrible. the last time i drew anything was about a year ago. i impressed myself but its still not that good compared to most standards. i took pics of it on my phone ill try and see if i can post it. thanks for your compliments.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: daniel99 on April 26, 2010, 07:59:43 pm
I''ve met people that even with good references can't pull it of. It needs skills. But I'm sure you can draw also. So, if you'll post yours, I will post mine :)

Drawing skill is very important in some cases, most for character or environment design. It was very helpfull and profitable for me.
Title: Re: yoda
Post by: rellik420 on April 28, 2010, 07:44:29 am
well i looked for the pics i drew. i couldnt find them but they r on my phone. once i figure out how to get it off my phone ill post it. but  id love to see what you have. ive always envied people who could draw cause ive always known i wasnt good enough for it. lately ive been facinated with anime art and animation. i love the way they cheat in their animations. but if u wanna show some of ur 2d art u welcome 2 hijack my thread ill show mine as soon as i figure out a way to get it on here. it seems that on my network provider they got rid of their pic text thing so i dunno how upload right now but ill figure a way 2 do it.

i might give 2d art another go ill try and find something that interests me to try and draw it. ill post that if i ever attempt 2 try and draw in the next few days.

Now I've seen your drawings. Well, you could try to make some comics. There are great money in comics.
Btw. It seems like I did promise to upload some of my drawings to. Here they are. :) Hope you like it!

thats what i meant how i cant draw very good. i honestly thing i do OK. but thats the extent of it. theres a million people who blow me away. (your one of them) but i enjoy looking at other peoples work. i never really claimed to be an artist butim gonna keep working at it and hopefully somethign will turn out great. i guess thats all any1 can hope for. and if nothing happens atleast ill have fun doing it. keep it up man your heading somewhere big as long as your persistant.

No, man. There are maybe people drawing even better than me. But this is not going to stop me, never :). You should do the same. I like it when people never give up:)
