Elizabeth Taylor custom repaint doll by Noel Cruz
FOR MORE OF MY ART, PLEASE VISIT MY WEB SITE AT WWW. NCRUZ.COM . Link below:

Elizabeth Taylor possesses one of the most beautiful faces in Hollywood. This one of a kind custom repaint is inspired by a very young Taylor around the beginning of her career as an adult actress.

The base doll used is Mattel's 11 -inch Elizabeth Taylor doll. (shown on the bottom left of the picture)

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to infuse it with the essence and character of Elizabeth Taylor. This was achieved with an exacting level of accuracy as well as shading and layering of colors, some of which are very subtle. To further add to the realism, I carefully restyled the hair and painted the hairline in to replicate Taylor's. These were all intended to bring out the luminescence of Taylor's radiant beauty.

The inset photo in the bottom shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.

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 . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise as well as carefully paying attention to proper scale.

-- 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.
