Doll Repaint - Aragorn by noeling Doll Repaint - Aragorn by noeling

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

We couldn't have an Arwen doll without her beloved mortal hero Aragorn. So here he is.

There is evidently more challenge with this repaint as I had to capture Viggo Mortensen 's likeness but infused with his character's essence. I wanted to replicate the rugged weather worn look and the appropriate expression.

Scaling down the hair took quite a bit of work as well as painting in the facial hair which had to be just the right amount and in the right places.

The inset photo on the bottom shows the mass produced version of the doll as it was 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

You do amazing work.

Do you know if there is an online listing where one can see all the Tonner dolls that are available for purchase? Where do you get yours?

I want to make/get a doll as a drawing assistant, but I'm very particular about the exact look, and a lot of the custom dolls are very much towards the overly cute/child-like look, so I thought a custom doll of a male celebrity might be a better starting point, but I'm at a loss as to what a good starting point is for that. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
