I'm trying to create this. I have modeled the mattress and face but do not really know what to do with them. Please help and thanks in advance.

You could use cloth.

Take a plane the size of the matress (probably pinned along the edges) as your cloth - then bring it over the face model - or your face model up in to it as high as you want it to go.

Then cut the resulting distorted plane it into your matress model.

Thanks David,
I'm a newbie with 3ds, I actually assume this would have to be done with cloth but didn't realize I could pin down the plane. Thanks for the tip. Also, maybe you can help me with another problem I'm having. I actually took some video of a bed, motion tracked it AE and took over the camera and null where the section of a quilt I'm trying to animate with the face. I use a pic of the section of the quilt on a plane near the null, but I cant seem to line it up in AE. Any suggestions?

Thanks David,
Here's what I came up with: https://vimeo.com/57906541


How to make the cloth material very elastic so it stretches tight on the face?

Nice!

I guess you would need to increase the number of faces you're using to allow it more deformation over the face shape.

Are you using a regular plane primitive?
You may get a better result to what you want by creating a :
shape / rectangle
Then using a Garment Maker modifier to divide up irregularly and produce a move 'flowing' material. Up the Density setting to get more divisions.

I really like the way it's looking though.

Yeah...that's looking really good. You can change the density of the cloth mesh, as David suggested, but you can also change the type of fabric, plus a number of other parameters. Here's a Max tutorial that takes a good look at the settings available:
