These two dolls are inspired by two Hollywood icons Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie from their recent film, "The Tourist". Depp and Jolie are two of the most fascinating celebrities of today and I thought I'd pay tribute to their film team up.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of the characters and the delicate nuances of facial expressions.

The inset photos on the bottom portion show the mass produced version of the dolls as they were originally released.

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

The suggester said: "Never in my life have I seen a repaint look SO realistic, let alone so recognizable!"
Angelina Jolie Johnny Depp dol by *noeling is just one of many examples of this artist's amazing skill in repainting dolls, the "before" pictures show just how mind blowing his work is. ( Suggested by CandyStripedCafe and Featured by MyntKat )
