Whew...finally - got both of 'em done. Turned out a bit more challenging than I thought. This is just a preview shot. They'll both be on ebay hopefully tomorrow or Thursday.
The dolls used are 15 1/2 inch and 17 1/2 inch Bella and Edward dolls by Robert Tonner. Fulll facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson from Twilight.
The inset photos on the upper left hand corner show the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan doll 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.
