This is my first post and one of my first projects. I know theres a small problem with the hat textures.
A- I try two methods for the hat:
1- First, I used the top half of a UVsphere, modeled using Vertex loop (Alt+B) and playing a bit with Scale and moving along Z; but I didn´t like the outcome.
2- Then I changed to a Plane, which was Subdivided twice, Ctrl+Alt+Shift+M to select Non-manifold, Ctrl+Shift+S and holding Ctrl to transform to Sphere. Extrude (E-key), and again playing a bit with Scale and moving along Z.
B- The cane is a circle along a path, then Face Loop Cut in the Loop/Cut Menu (K) to recreate the knots of the cane.
C- Finally, YafRay render (Method: FULL, Quality: HIGH, Depth: 5)
