    Here's a repaint of the Mattel Dark Knight Movie Master Heath Ledger Joker figure.

    I did a little re-sculpting on the hair to add a little length and have it hang down on his face a bit more.

    This guy was a real hoot to repaint. The paint job on the original factory release doesn't do the sculpt justice. I hope I managed to capture a little of Heath Ledger's menace as The Joker.

    The face and hair were completely repainted and the body has some pretty minor detail work added.

    Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might have.

    I will try to post a few more close ups of the head soon.

    Man, I love it. The hair color is a perfect fade from the roots to the green, and the brow and mouth work are DEAD ON!! You should hold your head high with this one, man. F***ing beautiful. You have my respect (not that it matters :dunce  ) on this piece.

    I like this more that you Soundwave, and I loved that one, too.

    And this one only took an hour or 2 to finish. Maybe I should stick to stuff like this. LOL!

    Thanks again.

    I just looked his up. The painting is pretty good. I'm not a fan of how he handled the hair, but to each their own.

    It also looks like his approach might have been to add the flesh details and dirty up the existing white head. I'm just guessing based on his pics, so I could be totally wrong there.

    Once I made the mods to the hair, I repainted the entire head to look like Ledger without Joker colors. Flesh tones, brownish blond hair, etc. Then I added the joker makeup and green hair on top, just like a real person would do. Lots of photo reference helped me with the details as well.

    I'm glad you like it, Tony. Thanks.

    Seemed like the natural approach.

    I think you did a hell of a good job. You really capture the realism of the movie itself and the likeness of Heath Ledger is frightfully dead on (sorry my bad, that was a bad pun).

    A lot of the likeness is in the sculpting. It's just hidden under the factory paint job.

    I may do one more Joker. Either the nurse or interrogation room. Haven't decided yet.

    Thanks for your kind words!
