Who doesn't love YODA?!!
I want a complete collection of 1:12 star wars figures and this is just a step in that direction.
Even though it's Yoda, I really wanted a very articulated version, an I'm really happy with the result!
I cut down a movie Frodo, to get the right proportions. I sculpted the hands, and toes (that were attached to frodo's feet). I also sculpted a hump on yoda's back. The head is from a sculpture I did years back when I was trying out super sculpy. It was all one piece and I didn't want to cut the head off, so I cast it. I didn't have mold making kit so i made a 2 part mold with my apoxie sculpt, and cast in apoxie as well. I was happy with how well it turned out, and I got to keep my figure.
I repainted all of the clothes brown, after that I got to the lots of tones to get Yoda's skin where I wanted it.
The cloak was inspired by the work of glorbes and spawnsauce. If you don't know their work, it's great stuff, and what they do in cloth is inspiring! The cloak was sewn to fit, a real pain, and then painted to look warn, dirtied and aged. Then i used a polyurethane resin to hold it to the look i wanted. It moves great, and keeps the wrinkles and folds the way i wanted them.
Belt and pouches are fodder(I think the pouches are from longshot). The cane is cut down from a lotr Gandalf staff and then shaped to have a hook handle.
Thanks so much for checking him out!
