A Familiar...Face?

Last night I started painting this 28mm scale jeep, which came with a driver made of pewter. It wasn't until I started painting said driver that I realized he was supposed to be Lord Humungus from The Road Warrior. If that's not what the modellers intended, well, I consider it a happy coincidence. 

Initially, I painted Humungus' mask white, then attempted to paint in black eye holes with my tiniest brush. Of course I wound up getting black all over his face. But inspiration struck. I wound up painting his whole face black, waited for it to dry, then dry-brushed white paint over the black. Success! Because the eye holes are recessed, the black layer shows through.

I thought it was pretty whimsical to have Shrek driving a truck, but I see I have apparently misjudged the scene...
