This repaint is inspired by the hit tv show "Vampire Diaries". Ian Somerhalder portrays the character along with Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore and Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert.
I use Tonner Doll Company's factory produced Damon Salvatore doll. The inset photos show the doll in its original factory state and during the transformation.
As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. The doll also underwent extensive hair rework to match the proportions of the face. .
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
