View Full Version : Photorealistic Yoda

01-29-2003, 03:22 PM
I have made a Reskin of yoda using pictures (makes him sort of foto realistic) from the AOTC dvd.
I was wondering if i could release this, ive used the default skin for the body but color corrected it.

This thread must be relocated to the Skinning section of the Showcase Forum

Oh im srry my bad.......how do i do thet

Oh BTW here is an update:



01-29-2003, 04:06 PM
Well, hopefully an admin will step in and move it to the skinning section. About the skin, wow, it look so good!!, Hope you get the approval!

EDIT: I just read again your first post, and you only have to send a e-mail or a PM to the authors of the Yoda model and ask for permision to submit this re-skin.

01-29-2003, 04:24 PM
Woah that looks cool! good job.

01-29-2003, 04:24 PM
Looks nice!

01-29-2003, 04:25 PM
holy crap, thats amazing! is it just me or does that yoda look sooooo much realler then the original? great job man, big ups. ;)

01-29-2003, 04:42 PM
Just one thing is missing...the hair.

01-29-2003, 04:46 PM
Year i know about the hair, i dont know how to do shaders and the shader program in the editing tools doesnt seem to work on my pc.
If anyone would like to help me do some shaders a post (or mail rjurs85@hotmail.com) would be greatly appriciated
Now about the skintone, ive don my best to correct the color of the face and cloths so it should mach exactly to the dvd. BTW ive done some more colorcorecting after the picture was made.

Did you check out this link (http://jk2ed.jediknightii.net/reources.htm) ?

01-29-2003, 05:03 PM
That does indeed look great. :)

I would love to see it released, and I hope you get permission.

As for the hair; It would seem a nice addition to the skin, since he does seem to have quite a fair bit of white hair in the shot on Yoda on the image.

But my question is, is the hair flat or raised from his head?
I thought shaders would help if his hair was flat on the head, but it seems to be quite wavy on-top of his head.
That's why I think it may need a little model addition, although I could be wrong...

I do not know much about shaders, but seeing white hair on yoda's head wave around would be a good idea. :D

I just checked the original Yoda skin, and that seems to have some hair on the head texture, and I don't think it makes use of a shader..

The shader file included with the Yoda model release, seems to use shaders for hair and face textures, does the yoda model have hair that moves?
I'm not an expert with shaders, but I might see what I can do involving the hair...

01-29-2003, 05:10 PM
Well making the hair wave in the wind is not possibul, not that i know off. but you are right that the model hat hair i just hided it when i took the pictures couse it would look stubid when not skinned nor shaded. i just need a person capabul of creating a shaded hair that look like the AOTC hair.
It is not that i dont like the hail on the original skin i just dont think that it looks like "AOTC" yoda's.

Try contact or PM'em Neomarz1, Arco,Kman, Matt-Liel or Mariners2001. They are great skinners and maybe can help you out

not bad not bad at all.

01-29-2003, 07:30 PM
That yoda reskin is amazing. Excellent work, I'm sure the original makers will allow you to release it.

01-29-2003, 07:39 PM
Looks cool man, cant wait for release. his pupils are a bit too dark too tho you probably already know that.

I would love to see a photo-realistic DARTH MAUL skin too man. That would be wicked, hehehe, just giving you some ideas.

other ideas:
photo-realistic Darth Vader
photo-realistic Luke Skywalker
photo-realistic Obi-wan
photo-realistic Qui gon

etc, etc, etc

Did I mention photo-realistic Darth Maul................Oh yeah I did hehehe, ok thats enough.

I cant wait to see if anyone can get Yoda's hair shader working, that would rock. Good luck with that.

01-29-2003, 10:19 PM
oooh very nice, photo realistic can look very good as we can see here

01-29-2003, 10:23 PM
Sweet ...looks awesome. Did you do something to the robe?...looks better to me. Wrinkles on the face look really nice.

01-29-2003, 11:19 PM
it looks very nice, although the eyes are too wide at the moment.

Nice work friend!!!

01-30-2003, 01:42 AM
Zippo, fantastic work dude, I love what you've done there with the Yoda skin!!

Yeah, I also agree that the eye pupils should be more of a light grey/brown color.

Just that and some hair, it will look totally kickass.

Once again, fantastic work.

01-30-2003, 08:40 AM
If you need any help I could try and help you.

01-30-2003, 07:56 PM

Well I looked at the pics some more, and I do not know the appropriate way to go about this, it would be really complicated I think. You may want to ask Acro about this one.

02-01-2003, 04:01 PM
Does any one know Arco's E-mail otherwise i dont know how to reach him. i realy wanna share this skin with you guys

02-01-2003, 05:01 PM
