Does anyone have pictures of Custom Two Face head yet, I'm not sure if I would consider repaints custom for Two Face. I really want to see a one with the nose hole and fixed eye. Here are the custom Joker heads I've found so far.

NOTE: I did not do these, I just found them for reference in case I want someone to customize my V.1 Joker head

12254 -----> This is a Different Sculpt by itself, only one picture of it found.

I think that is a V1 resculpt, because the nose seems less pointy and the mouth a little more defined. The non-sculpted hair helps too.

I think that is a V1 resculpt, because the nose seems less pointy and the mouth a little more defined. The non-sculpted hair helps too.

Could be a Modified C.Howes sculpt:

http://www.chowes.com/joker1/painted/3.jpg

But if it is a HT v.1 Joker it's been HEAVILY resculpted/modified. Just look at the side profile:

http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=12252&d=1232433000

Again, IF this is a HT v.1 Joker, The eyebrow ridge has been shaven down. The entire face has been sanded down to remove the wrinkles. The mouth has been resculpted. The chin has been shaven down, same with the double chin (which I recently found out is on ALL v.1 Jokers) that's been shaven down. The nose has been cut down and resculpted. The smile lines on the mouth + Scars have been resculpted. The eyes have been moved either with simple paint or they've been resculpted.

There's A LOT. So don't think all you need is a new paint job for that HT v.1 Joker to look accurate.

The head is definitely not the Les head. Devil666 just mentioned that Les had perfected the Joker hair on his modded DCD head.

The member you are on about who did ONE of the posted ones on the first page of this thread, did indeed post it as a WIP, and has not replied since. It is his own sculpt apparently.

HOWEVER, the above quoted pics are of an entirely different sculpt. The back of the hair on the sculpt seems to suggest HT V1 Joker, but, as Devil said, that would be some serious face mods.

It's a nice attempt though. But I agree, his sculpt looks more like Johny Depp and not Ledger. I posted 4 sets of different head in case you wonder.

i remember the head you were talking about. They were on ebay about the same time the first batch of bank robber joker were on sale in hong kong because I was looking for a bank robber joker head. I found this one and was bidding on it but did not win the winning bid was 252.00

They were won around $90-$120, I never actually bid, not only because I didn't have the money but I never knew I'd buy a high class pricey figure from Hot Toys or Sideshow.....Damn if only BR Joker came in time I would have post pictures. I got my BR Joker last Wednesday, being my first ever High Class toy. I'll have to wait 2 months to go home and see it in person.

Definitely not Great, but it is an auction. I still want to get the first joker for the clothes but damn I don't want to spend another $173 on Corner Store Comics. The Two Face there is the cheapest of all of them and he offers something new. If i got the purple suit joker it wouldn't that exciting because the head sucks. Definitely not a great deal, but just buying the clothes instead without the head I would prefer. If only people on would sell the clothes all together and not individually. I see auctions for the coat by itself and the winning bid ends up to $50, definitely not a great deal.

It's legit. I own a Bale sculpt he did a few years back, and he's selling casts of his Terminator stuff on these boards that you can buy. He's a student out in Alaska and stays busy with school so he rarely posts. I can assure you everything you see in the picture is real.

The hole doesn't show well at the moment because when you cut away, it's flesh tone underneath so it doesn't shadow much compared to all the black around it, I'll paint it to stand out though.

The jokers on the first page look decent. The good looking one cant be a V1, its just way off, even the general shape and sculpt of the head seems different. Full custom i would say, does look good though. The first one is, as discussed, some guy on here, who apparently isnt finished yet. They look sick with the real hair, when it's done right.
Eager to see your progress also Maulfan ^. Looks good so far dude. I'm suprised we havnt already seen more custom two faces, on the HT sculpt. There is room for improvement, and very simple tweaking only enhances it greatly. Sadly, i dont want to stuff mine so am not going to touch it :p

Well, I got a second head for this just to be safe in case I mess up royally. So far, it seems that most of the people who take issue with how Two-Face turned out are ones that don't own him at all, most of the ones with him seem happy enough not to worry about doing dramatic mods. Plus, only about 50% of the people have theirs as many are waiting for DCD.

lol.. the same could be said about the v.1 Joker before the Bank Robber version came out. I personally saw countless people on here saying how great it was etc. and once the BR Joker came out, they were STILL stubborn in admiting how crappy the v.1 sculpt was. It wasn't until they actually GOT IT, that they were finally able to admit it. In other words, most people have this weird need to defend (for whatever reason) the stuff they have as opposed to being real and unbiased. If a better, more accurate sculpt of Two-Face from TDK came out, guaranteed all these people right now that are "happy" with their current HT version would absolutely TRASH that sculpt. Obviously people that don't like it won't have it. Because they DON'T LIKE IT. :duh

I think the Two-Face head as is is fine, which is why I bought a second one to tweak, no matter how good this ends up, I'll still want the original. I still like the v1 Joker, the only thing I hate about it having the BR in hand is the paint apps, the v1 has a strange style for the black eye makeup and looks less than ideal under a number of circumstances where they used a different method on both BR heads. It's not a perfect Ledger sculpt like BR but I still like it, had it been painted like the BR, I'd really like it.

I think the guys modding the two face heads are taking a big risk at ruining a 200 dollar figure. I don't think the regular Harvey face looks much like Ekhart but the two face head is spot on and I honestly do not se how it can be improved on at all. The Harvey half is a wonderful likeness and the scarred part looks identical to the movie to me. If I could see some actual picture proof of how its not I'd take it back but until then I will not understand how people have a problem with it.

I thought the overall quality of Two Face was a bit cheap in comparison to the rest though especially the soft rubber heads.

The most significant difference between the figure and the film is the eye socket. In the film, the muscle and tissue around the eye were pretty flush to the eyeball, the figure has a slightly more open socket.

http://www.swmmedia.com/CUSTOMS/TWOFACE/TF_COMP.jpg

In addition, the fleshy remains are a bit off in placement and color. The bone and tissue over the eye socket, the bleed of skin onto the charred side, and the general red of the flesh parts.

Now, to the nitpicky eye, there is a fair ammount that can be reworked on the figure, but if you don't scrutinize it, the figure is close enough to look just fine.

I find the figure quite acceptable, I'm really happy with it, but I'm an artist and I wanted to see what I could accomplish if I tried to make it match more to the film. So as not to ruin the figure, I bought a second head just for my retooling efforts.

I haven't had the chance to start the paint work yet, but I've added sculpting material to correct the areas I've mentioned.

I did it without thinking all the time. Its always worked out okay for me but still use caution...

I bought a spare BR Joker suit to give to my Sideshow Perice Brosnan Bond on a Hot Toys body, and I ironed the suit to eliminate the wrinkles and it got a lot of shiny streaks on it. I think that's supposed to be a result of the fibers melting and fusing together. I just sort of flicked and buffed it out by rubbing it with my fingers and it's almost all gone.

They say you are supposed to iron with a damp cloth over it but every time i try that nothing irons and everything stays wrinkled so I'd say yeah, Iron away but be careful while doing so.

The texture of the burned side is really the most important thing they got wrong witht he Two-face. It should be more ashy.

How's the progress on this MaulFan?

Hopefully significant this weekend. I just had my first bits of time and energy to do anything creative the past couple days, so I haven't touched him since the sculpt work, but I hope to possible even finish it this weekend. Basically, I'm going to paint the bone around his eye socket, then a mix of reds and flesh tones all over the burn side, which I'll photograph, then add the blackened areas to shape the remaining flesh bits.

Here's Two-Face with the flesh and muscle tones added. I think I'm going to do the black bits tonight as well so I rushed and took flash photos, the colors look better under normal lighting.

Hey guys, I'm glad to see the positive reaction this is getting. I half expected this would be a train wreck when I started, which is why I bought a spare head to do it rather than just rework my own. I was nervous until I laid the first layer of paint on. When it was just the added sculpting material, I was scared that it may not look right painted, it's hard to tell how well it's blended in when the sculpt material is white and the head is charcoal grey, thankfully it worked out just fine.

As far as taking commissions to do this to your Two-Face heads, I certainly appreciate that my work on this thing is of a quality that would generate such interest, but to be honest, I don't feel confident enough in my ability to replicate the head to the point where I'd be comfortable taking money from people to do it. In a good economy, let alone the current one, you guys work hard to earn the money you have and buy these figures, I'd hate to ruin your head or deliver work that doesn't feel worth the money to you.

I'm not a custom figure maker by any means, I've painted a couple heads, which turned out just ok, but easily a 2/10 compared to the 9/10-10/10 quality pieces the pros around here can turn out.

So, I'm not saying I wouldn't be willing to do this for you, we can discuss it, but just want you guys, incase you're not totally familiar with me and my history doing this sort of thing, to understand where I'm at so there's no surprises or anything.

Looks sick man, how on earth do you paint them so well, and intricately?

Thanks. As far as painting it, I started as a fine artist over a decade ago, so I've got experience with paints on canvas, plus illustrations I do on the computer, I just apply the same concepts on 3D works.

As far as painting it so well, the burnt side of a Two-Face head, particularly from the Dark Knight, isn't a true showing of ability. I made mistakes, but because there's no definitive pattern to things, you can mess up and it'll look like it was intended. The eye is still HT's factory job, as are the teeth, gums and mouth muscles and tendons, I just did the the charred skin.


Amazing job MaulFan! Did you reshape the area around the eye, or is that just the paint job changing the shape to be more rounded?! Looks fantastic! :)

Yes, I added sculpt material to alter the eye socket as well as fill in some deep gauges in the skin that weren't film accurrate.

Yeah I'll totally admit you improved on it considerably. Nice work for certain! The bone texture looks a lot more realistic too.

With regard to that, I came to find when I switched my figure to Dent for some photos, the shirt the figure comes with being so much thinner in material than most 1/6 button downs makes a big difference on the sport coat, so now I'm trying to hunt down a second TF shirt if I can to weather, that or I'll weather the one that came with a figure and just buy another regular white button down and leave it clean for the few times in the future I'll use the figure as Dent.

It's a mix of pink and off-white like the movie, but being so small it varies, sometimes in hand it looks really orangey or pink, others just right.

I think it looks great, but I absolutely hate the expression. That's just me. Obviously it's possible to capture ANY facial expression of an actor/character in a movie. But certain expressions simply don't work and aren't recognizeable imo. Like for instance if someone made a sculpt that captured this look:

http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/2212/example1d.jpg

Yeah it would be accurate, and it does appear in the film for a second but realistically I don't think that's a good representation of the character.

Just my opinion.

the thing is with each and every head you are gonna have an expression for a certain part of the film. But to me it is about having the most accurate sculpt of ledger as the joker. The hot toys sculpts are great in their own aspects and you gotta love the innovation of the PERS, but they just do not have that realistic look with the spaghetti strand hair and big eyes. To me it is about having something as accurate as I could get.

I hear you. Different tastes. While I like imaresqd1's modified sculpts for their likeness (best I've ever seen) I dislike them for the overall appearance i.e. I haven't seen a single modified sculpt from him that I would personally want. I prefer the sinister/evil look that the BR and DX Joker headsculpts have. imaresqd1's modified sculpts look like Joker is about to cry or something!? :lol

I'd be interested in seeing him attempt a more menacing type of look. Wonder why he hasn't done that thus far!?

blakus939
10-26-2009, 10:12 PM
That........looks......insane! God damn that likeness is great, best one i've ever seen i reckon! I agree, expression isn't what i would have picked, but is so dead on. Especially from the front, from the profile/side, not as much, a bit on the fat side, but from the front - WOW. The hair especially just takes the whole thing over the edge! If you ever sell that baby (obviously i would take it never) but you know who to call if that time comes. Well done to craftsman and ideaman. I'd so love to see one done like my avatar pic, and would pay so much for one, but the bloke just doesn't seem interested. I have no idea what makes him tick lol. You'd think it would be money, but he still doesn't return any messages or make contact.

I was never a fan of the Les head. I know the original head is a 3D scan of ledger but still it is not a very good head in my opinion. Also I am a fan of les's work but I do not like the fuzzy hair. In the movie his hair always had a greasy/wet look and this hair just looks too toyish. That is where adam's sculpts prevail. He uses a mix of sculpting and real hair but gives the hair a sense that it is actually wet/greasy.

LChinoz
10-27-2009, 11:36 AM
Their both awesome sculpts. Les' has more attitude and looks more menacing, while Adam's looks like a screen capture come to life. No need to pick favorites, you can't lose with either one. I'm partial to Les' because I have one coming though :D :rock
