    Yeah, the eyes and the hair are what is preventing the likeness from showing through.

    I wouldn't try bleach. The material is very thin, somewhat sheer, and you risk thinning it out even more to the point of tearing.

    Well, that's the other problem.

    For sure does NOT need a repaint IMO. Unless you totally are bugged by the hair which i am not..Looks very fine to me.

    I'd like to see more poses and body shots the likeness is there to me.

    Yeah, I would definitely not try bleaching it. 1/6 clothes can barely stand up to a dye job let alone something as harsh as bleach.

    I think a bit of weathering, maybe even light washes of gray paint could help give him a better look. But for me I was able to get decent poses by futzing with the tunic and was happy with how he looked posed.
