Custom precision repaint of the Hot Toys version Maleficent figure.  Image on the bottom shows the doll before repaint.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

As a Filipino, I am deeply saddened by the recent devastation that has befallen my country, with many towns decimated and thousands killed from the recent worst ever recorded typhoon in history that ravaged the Philippines a few days ago. It would be a disservice if I didn't take this moment to call to everyone for whatever assistance, help and support we can extend to the victims of this horrific disaster. I feel grateful and honored for your support of my art, but we are first and foremost human beings and I have faith in the power of humanity especially in moments of real crisis.

Many thanks to everyone for allowing me to reach to you and your hearts so that we can come together and help those who are suffering.

Below is a link to relief organizations where we can send help. Whatever we can give, even prayers, will go  long way in helping our hurting brothers and sisters.

As an artist, I strive to always challenge myself and push the boundaries. My passion for hand painted miniature celebrity figures stems from my love of portraits, which has been my whole artistic arc since childhood.

The satisfaction of not only the ability to recreate a person's likeness but to recreate it in lifelike 3D miniature form (i.e. dolls and action figures) is one that I consider immeasurable.

Repaint is not your standard mainstream artistic arena, but I am extremely grateful that it has been gaining recognition for the last 10 years.

Repaint is a portrait taken to a whole other level.

Hello sir. Gusto ko lang po magpasalamat at nandyan ka, at ang iyong talento. Alam niyo po ba na kaya ko po gusto gumawa ng figurines ay dahil sa mga nakikita kong hindi kaaya-aya na mga binebentang ganun? 'Yung mga hindi maganda quality o hindi kamukha ng tao o anime character. Nahihiya po ako para sa mga nagbebenta/gumagawa ng ganun. Parang ginawa nila without passion. Kaya sooobrang thank you po for the recreations you've done to those sculptures. Really, thank you. Balang araw rin po sir, maiaangat ko rin po ang pangalan ng ating bansa. Keep on being our inspiration! Kudos!!

I'd like to point how it's sad that the modeling of the dolls are well done. They most likely pay a somewhat capable sculptor to make the original, but then they go and ruin it with the painting DX You're the proof that those dolls aren't poorly made, they're just poorly finished. And you do a great job at it. I'm just bringing it up because as a sculptor I'm upset about how our bit of the job is always forgotten/ignored.

Ah...I've been wondering how this person makes their doll, so they were already made but poorly painted.

Re-painters actually make me want to collect dolls and try painting on them myself. :|

I'd rather make my own dolls, since I'd make them my own character. Sad part is that I probably won't paint them as well as talented repainters like noeling do ;w;
