**********************************************
Being a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy film, I anticipated with much excitement Tonner Company's release of their LOTR line of dolls based from the films.

The sculpt in my opinion is absolutely spot on, but sadly the factory paint failed to bring out Liv Tyler's features. It was quite a challenge because not only did I need to capture Liv's features but also her essence and character as Arwen, as well as capture an expression of inner emotion and longing for her mortal love, Aragorn.

Complete hair restyle and full facial repaint were needed to bring Liv's features to life. The subtlest shading on the different features of her face was executed to achieve this.

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
