My most recent 11 1/2 inch Cher doll repaint. The base doll used was Mattel's Timeless Treasures Cher based upon her "Half Breed" video. This version features a younger Cher featuring 1970s style makeup.

Complete removal of original paint then given a full facial repaint as well as a rework of the hair to replicate the pop icon. Note that hairline was also handpainted to add a more realistic appearance.

The inset photo on 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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

***************************************************

Mattel's tribute doll of Farrah Fawcett bears a perfect likeness of the iconic actress in terms of the facial sculpt. However, it clearly suffers in the production paint department.

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.

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.

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.
