YODEA ANGEL; Greek art: Cupid Playing with a Butterfly | Star Wars: Yoda
To begin his project, Durden visited the iconic Louvre Museum in Paris and captured photographs of the breath-taking Ancient Greek sculptures on display. These would serve as inspiration for each piece, leading the artist to collaborate with a 3D modeler to get a realistic redesign of the statues’ heads the showcase characters such as Darth Vader and Yoda.
For the finishing touches he worked together with a re-toucher that helped fit the new faces seamlessly onto their new bodies. The process required the creation of a texture that’s resembles fake marble.
The finished products are fantastic, looking very-much like the real thing! You can be forgiven thinking that these are ancient statues that were masterfully carved from marble centuries ago.
