I've heard that a Dr. Cranky figure and his sidekick will be available soon, and the sneak-peek we've had of them look GREAT!

Creating a figure is a bit involved but like any hobby it can be learned
You would need a sculpting medium like Supersculpy
or Milliput
soft wire to create an armature, sculpting tools,lighter fluid
An understanding of the Human Anatomy, composition, scale and proportion.
Starting with "roughing in"the head arms body and legs. Then "fleshing out the details"
Once that is all done a Master is created...then casting in resin
Masters are usually too soft or delicate... so resin casts are done to make the piece more durable and workable.
The hardest is the face or "Portrait".....I've tried its not easy

Doesn't that answer your original question? With fantasy and cartoon characters, you can get away with not being 100% accurate and lifelike. With lifelike figures, the human face and body is so intimately familiar, the replica figure has to be incredibly accurate, too, or it will instantly fail the eye test.

If John Rosengrant did a few 1/24 car guys, I'd be first in the queue!

That is what I'm trying to acheive...this being 1/32nd scale...is amazing!!! That is an artist!!!!!!! I still got a long ways to go to get there!!!!!!!!!!!! My zombies & Cranky figs look pretty good...no where near this caliber though.

there are professional sculptors that do achieve lifelike portraits. My POINT is that they cater to 1/35, 1/32, 1/16,1/4 and 1/8 scales. They cover a lot of military or historical specific subjects. These genres are flooded. There is no shortage of sculptors in these fields. What I can't understand is why don't they cross into the 1/24 scale. The talent is there.. We just need someone to commission them to do 1/24 scale subjects.

The figures of Roth, Elvira and Austin Powers that came from the major manufacturers didn't look as good as the 1/32nd scale figure depicted!
