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!
