Check out this incredibly realistic statue of Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight. Amazingly, this was not made with a cast of Heath Ledger's real face - it was created by photo references only. Even more amazing, it was not done by a professional. The artist Bobby Causey is an actor primarily, and does this sculpting work in his spare time for his own enjoyment. He also created a full-scale reproduction of the Batmobile (you can see it in the reflection). He won't even sell it, and some have tried. The amount of detail is truly jaw-dropping. Click to enlarge the pictures below.

That's better than most of the wax figures at Madam Tussauds.

I agree, Alex. "You look nervous. Is it scars? Wanna know how I got 'em?"

True enough, sqt72. He used silicon instead of wax.

That looks fantastic. For a moment I thought it was just a screencap.

I wish Bobby Causey would read this and respond. All I know is that he used silicone.
