    Here's another one.
    I used this pic to replace the old yoda splash on the front page of SWP.

    Thanks.
    I totally agree.
    After seeing at him with hair, it does look weird when you go back and look at him bald.
    Same when I go back and look at him pre-paint.

    I wonder if seeing him with weathered robes and nails will give a similar effect. Probably not as much as the hair did.

    Getting closer to the end.
    I managed to get the robes distressed. He looks like he climbed out of the sewer, or swamp I guess.

    Next will be the nails, then finally the teeth for the final.

    Let me know what you think.

    They sell Q-Tips on Dagobah?

    This is a fantastic Yoda. Really captures the subtle expressions and attitudes of the real deal.

    The distressed robes, puts a great dirty but not to dirty look to him. Fantastic job.

    Well, almost.
    The last thing I need to do is find a better rope for the flute.
    It's so minor, I'm still calling him finished.

    These are the additional features added to him since the last set of pics:
    - A Guntakela flute, (repainted by me).
    - A Vadermonkey cane, (I heavily modified it by thinning it down, slightly reshaping it, and resculpting some of the details).
    - I sculpted a set of teeth, but they are hard to see in the pics. The mouth on my yoda head isn't designed to open wide so all you really get is a glimpse of them.


    I'll be taking a bunch more official pics later for my SWP proparchive.
    But for now, here are some I just took.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks for all the support guys.

    Here are some new ones trying to show off the new interior mouth mods.
    Now I can take pics of him with his mouth open as well as tightly closed.

    However, I have to say, if there is a way for me to make and post a video of me puppeteering him along with some ESB audio, I totally will.
    It is a must see. It really does look so much like the real thing the way the mouth moves and seeing the teeth when his mouth opens wide just adds so much realism.
    I modified the inside of the head to create notches for my index and second finger above the brow, as well as a custom thumb insert against the lower lip which allows me to articulate the mouth.

    Until I'm able to get some sort of video, here are some pics.

    Let me know what you think.

    Interested in the next run pending price.





    HA! Seriously man. Amazing. Even more amazing that this reproduction is also a puppet as the original. That's a lot of extra work beyond just the look itself. Hope to see video of him in action.
