This one goes to eleven!

The Eleventh Doctor
28 mm


"I wear a fez now.  Fezzes are cool"  (relevant "Doctor Who Confidential").  Miniature is the Nerdlord from Heresy.  A lot of people don't like this Doctor, but it's just been announced that they're killing regenerating him off, so there's that...

I'm not sure if the fez is too high on his head, it was awkward to sculpt on without mangling his existing hair in the process.  Feedback needed.

  1. I think the fez is fine, I didn't mind this version of the Doctor!

  2. I really like Matt Smith, despite being completely won over by Tennant as my favorite dr, eclipsing even my likely over-romanticized 80's favorite.

    The fez is remarkably well proportioned. It sits just slightly too high over his ears, but certainly within tolerance of the scale. Interesting challenge... there is so little change in top to bottom diameter for a fez in rl that a mini one would look more like cylinder. Your implementation works extremely well.

    1. Thanks Francis and Mike... It does sit a *bit* high, but I know my sculpting limitations, and it still looks okay. If worse came to worse I could probably pry it off his head, it's just stuck on with green stuff.

  3. Looks good to me, Crooked dice both do a version of this doctor and do a fez head in the accessories section.

    1. Crooked Dice are indeed a veritable cornucopia of not-Doctor Who stuff.

  4. Fez looks good. And I like Matt Smith more than David Tennant, there I said it.

  5. I think the hat is a fine sculpt. If you did this again, and wanted the hat to fit a bit lower on the figure's head, you might consider filing his hair down a bit...where it's located under the cap. Very nice job with the putty.

  6. It 's quite nice nice but it can end looking like a red crème caramel if you don't add that hanging strings as finishing touch...

    1. It was tempting but the one on the show didn't have a tassel. It does look ridiculous on him, but that's kind of the point, which is why River blasted it.
