Christmas Reflections by noeling
Christmas Reflections
Christmas is the most awaited time of the year for me for different reasons. The images, sights, sounds, scents and taste of the season, the company of friends and dear ones, and the chance to feel completely like a child. But foremost is the feeling of gratitiude it invokes for me. With that, let me say thank you to everyone for your whole hearted support of my art through the years. I wish that I could meet each and every one and feel that on a personal level. But I really can't complain at all. I am blessed and fortunate to be able to share my art with all of you. I wish for you all the love and spirit of this season!
Tribute to my Mom - 15 inch Custom doll repaint by noeling
Tribute to my Mom - 15 inch Custom doll repaint
Remembering Mom this Christmas - custom repaint of 15 inch Gene Doll as my mom, Carmen (1930-1983)

As a child, I looked to Christmas with magic and wonder. My mom would always make sure that the food was perfect and that everything looked good as best as she and my dad could afford. To this day, I still become a little child during Christmas. And I owe all that to my dear mom. Merry Christmas, mom. You are forever missed.

Farrah Fawcett Swimsuit Poster doll repaint by noeling
Farrah Fawcett Swimsuit Poster doll repaint
WWW. NCRUZ.COM . Link below:

RECREATING ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS POSTERS OF ALL TIME: custom repaint inspired by Farrah's Red Swuimsuit Poster

As a huge fan of Farrah, I just had to take the doll and transform it into a faithful replica of the Charlie's Angels star.

As Farrah's hair was so iconic, extensive hair styling was the first order of business. Next was the delicate task of painting in her facial features. Since the sculpt depicts a big full smile, hand painting and shading each tooth was a painstaking process that had to be the exact scale and proportion. The image on left side shows the doll as it was originally released.

(Note: I am in no way affiliated with Mattel)
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.
