This figure was made for a few reasons: to test out thatsmyface-dot-com's facial modeling/3D printing, and as a gift my (then) girlfriend who was overseas. Since she liked figures, and my work (but I was back in Canada between contracts), I included this figure in a package of Christmas/Valentines gift to her.

About the thatsmyface-dot-com 3D printing: It's eerily accurate, as long as you do front/left/right shots of your face, and are willing to airbrush/photoshop your image to remove shadows. The site lets you model your face based on that (choosing points where your eyes are, nose, etc.), and in a few weeks you can get the 3D printed face.
Now, the downside: the face has the image printed *into* the material, which is great - but the head has the texture of a sugar cube, and has a skin tone that's nearly impossible to match, given how it reflects light.
Hence, why I wet-sanded down this head with high-grit sand paper (300+), then sculpted my hairstyle with black Aves Apoxie. Using Tamiya flat skin tone (great for cartoonish/comic book style skin tone right out of the bottle) I painted the head, and used Vallejo paints for the whole body.
Overall, the 'thatsmyface' process is great to nailing a general shape, but if you want something that's not just a fun gift to a non-figure collector, it requires some work on the part of a customizer to make something that looks good.
