    How much detail do you think you will lose when cast in silicone eg wrinkles ?

    I think it's about ready. Oftentimes I've seen sculptors over work these sculpts to the point that the likeness starts to be lost. I think you're stopping at the right point Raf.

    Awesome Raf i see yoda
    No need more
    Maybe just one thing, i think his ears have to be more sharp...more pointed....
    Will you cast with the glass eyes? And cut hole for eyes after? Or you can take off his glass eyes before casting?

    Thanks guys ok will thin out ears and make them pointier, , as for detail , I think many of the thin wrinkles may not be visible in silicone but hoping with the paint job they will not be missed . But also won't want the paint to go into them where it will make then look like drawn lines

    I will cast it with the eyes in, if I take them out it will distort the socket and would be very difficult to archive the look without the eyes , and I will try one of two things , either put in eyes in mold then pour in silicon ( which eyes can move and get all cross eyed or cast and cut hole and put in , we will see .

    Hey Raf I did some quick photoshopping on your Yoda and maybe you might consider doing some changes , just trying to help ;) :
    Left (your sculpt) - middle movie reference - right edited in photoshop .
    [​IMG]
    I made the ears finer , made the nose smaller and positioned it more upwards and did some general editing on the head shape , made the neck wider and made the chin more pronounced .
