The facial reconstruction was unveiled a day after DNA confirmed the bones dug up from a car park belonged to the monarch.
Richard III was killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 aged 32, but his grave was lost after the church in which it was contained was demolished in the 16th century.
According to BBC News, Caroline Wilkinson said it was a "great privilege" to have been drafted in to analyse the skull as professor of craniofacial identification at the University of Dundee.
She continued: "The facial reconstruction was produced on the assumption that the remains were unknown and portraits of Richard III were not used as reference.
"When the 3D digital bust was complete it was replicated in plastic using a rapid prototyping system and this was painted, prosthetic eyes added and dressed with a wig, hat and clothing."
Historian John Ashdown-Hill, who penned The Last Days of Richard III, stated: "The most obvious features in portraits are the shape of the nose and the chin, and both of those are visible in the facial reconstruction.
"I had said previously that when I stood by the grave in Leicester that I felt closer to Richard III than I had ever been, but when I saw the facial reconstruction I realised I had been close to a dead Richard III.
"It was just bones, just a body, whereas confronting a facial reconstruction, I felt almost in the presence of a living Richard III."
