    You could perhaps ask the artist himself. :)

    @Too Much Garlic
    In fact, if I asked him before, but he told me that he would upload the files so that we could print them on our own.

    You know here are some words of advice. first the scars need a bit more detailing and they need a slight pinkish tone (mostly the top of the head scar). Second the whole head needs to be paler (but not too pale) Darth Vader was very pale. Third the dark around the eyes is to intense tone it down a bit (and add a very very slight pinkish hue). Well I hope that helps some!

    I think he tries to make the original version of Anakin and not the version of the DVD's

    Thanks for the advice frogfreak. I wasn't trying too hard really, just a quick test without putting too much thought into it. The final head I intend to be 1:1 and the paint test model was small.

    As for updates, I've been busy with a lot of other things, but I will get back to this and I WILL print it 1:1. But for now, I'm a real stickler for likenesses and I recently decided it wasn't quite close enough to Shaw so I'm revamping it. I'll also upload that V2 sculpt too at some point.

    This is version 2. I know that's a pita but likenesses are * hard, even for those of us that do quite a few of them. There won't be a version 3 :)
    I spent more time really trying to nail his likeness and I'm feeling much better about where he is. I also wanted to make him feel a little more menacing than the previous version.

    I'll upload version 2 just as soon as I've done some test printing.

    Really looking forward to the coloring of this piece from you painters out there! I love the skin discoloration of the "reveal" in ESB and have always wanted to see that incorporated into the full reveal of Anakin in RotJ. While his paleness makes sense, I've always wanted to see that kind of palette on the back of the head applied naturally over the rest. Especially finding out much later that you've had your skin regrown from severely burned and damaged tissue.
