Well, this took me three days of near nonstop work, and the rigging hasn't started, but here it is, my second attempt of doing a 3d model of the older Yoshi.

This is my first attempt years ago, which is decent for an earlier model, but I wasn't 100% satisfied with the results and it always looked off in some angles. I also lacked some tools to really nail the look down, as I relied primarily on Maya to model, which is far from an easy task especially when you aren't quite familiar with modeling yet. Also, I didn't use texture tools at the time, relying primarily on painting the UV on Photoshop and viewing the result in Maya, a pretty cumbersome and old-fashioned task.

But with the existence of Zbrush, I was able to sculpt a model that's far more accurate to the original, at least with the mesh. Since the mesh is relatively simple, this is just dynamesh sculpting.

Since that sculpt was well over a million polys, it can't be ported to any game and it can't really be all that animated. So I decimated the mesh and imported it to Maya, where I retopo the thing to a more reasonable amount of poly and also modeled the inside of its mouth. I also made some minor adjustments to the mesh.

After that was done, I did UV Unwrap with UVLayout and made some UV edits in Maya. The texture sheet looks like this.

Once I was satisfied, I fired up Substance Painter 2 and painted the textures.

And then I rendered the results with the built-in render, because why not! But enjoy. Well, just the pictures, the actual model still needs to be rigged. Otherwise, it's just a silly statue.

I am now glad they changed his design, because he looks pretty terrifying in 3D. Brilliant model!

It's only terrifying because it never had a chance to really be in 3D. I hope I can give it that chance.

Good. Once I get it rigged and ported to Gmod then I can try to get it and  modern Yoshi pointing at each other.
