Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) 1/6 scale paint job by DarrenCarnall Doc Holliday (Val Kilmer) 1/6 scale paint job by DarrenCarnall
I was sent this two inch tall (the face is just over one inch) head by a client for a full paint job, so I spent some time studying pictures and video of the character, and of Val Kilmer's face (eye colour etc) ...and then I spent a full week painting it. There's lots and lots of layers on this... I tried to capture that unwell and clammy appearance he has... but not make him look TOO ill. Still wanted him to look cool and confident.

I have to say this is the favourite thing I've ever painted... it's a wonderful sculpt in the first place, but I'm REALLY pleased with how it turned out... the depth and subtle layers in the skin, the realism of the eyes... I think this is my best paint job ever. I love it!

No kidding. He looks real! Good job! I wish I could paint with such accuracy as that.

I thought this was him! One of my favorite westerns, and Mr. Kilmer certainly makes the movie for me! Well done, this is fantastic!

I used to watch it all the time with my dad when I was younger, so I was excited to find it in a discount bin a few years ago! Definitely worth the watch if you can track it down!

Possibly one of the top 10 best western films of all time.
The tension that builds between Val Kilmer and Michael Bein's characters is just classic.
