Doll Repaint Bella and Edward by noeling Doll Repaint Bella and Edward by noeling

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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

your plastic doll looks more alive than the actress it's based off.

Wonderful job! I think they look better than in reality ;D You are a master :worship:

Maybe if you want to make new dolls I'd have an idea: Why not making the characters from Star Wars? Or Harry Potter? I'd LOVE to see what you create with them :love:

Hey!

I was wondering...if I paid you and sent you my Edward doll, would you re-paint him for me to make him look more like Rob???

Thank you. I might be willing to create another Rob doll for you for $2,900.00, which was how much the doll sold for on ebay.

Finally, Bella looks like Bella. Great work! Edward is too dark but maybe the body was dark, I can't tell. But they are now worth the over $200 a piece, I'm sure. I know the dolls without the redone is about $126 each.
