This is the droid you're looking for...
I wanted to work on my hard surface and texturing skills so set about making BB-8. I never published it at the time as I wasn't happy with the renders but finally reworked them in time for Star Wars season.
A big thanks to everyone who helped me out at 3DFT and The DiNusty Empire! I was able to reduce the triangle count to 10k without losing quality thanks to much of the advice you guys gave me. And I learned a whole lot in the process too!
Textures: 1 x 4k
