    Painted with acrylics over a few weeks period as a present for a friend...
    I decided against painting the light effect of the saber's reflection on the shoulder and sleeve and a 'dirtier' cloth, basically due to the lack of time...

    Hope you like it,
    All comments welcome...
    Thank you

    Thank you gordy...

    To tell the truth I used the pictures of YODA miniature from member zwo93 in this forum as a reference, especially the way he painted the eyes, but with one difference...

    While painting the eyes and trying to paint the little white dots of light reflections, I realized that by leaving the eyes black and with just a tint of lighter color as a highlight the actual physical light of the room was creating the appropriate reflections...
    So what you see in this photo IS the actual reflection of the the light in the room while I was taking the photo...it also works (for my taste at least) when you hold the mini towards the sun...I guess in this scale it's something that produces the appropriate illusion...not something that I would try in a larger scale or a bust...:)

    Nice.
    Eyes are really well done.
    The gloss coat on the eyes gives a realistic result.

    Cheers,

    I Just started to paint a Clone Trooper from KM myself, also as a present to my friend. I really liked what you have done with Master Yoda here. Excellent work.
