The first step was measuring the man with lots of crazy tools. They took hundreds of photographs and made molds of his hands.

Then, they color-matched his skin, hair, eyeballs, etc.

Afterwards, an artist spent five weeks sculpting Cumberbatch's head.

A mold was then made from the sculpted clay head, which doesn't look terrifying at all.
