Doll Repaint - Madonna by noeling Doll Repaint - Madonna by noeling
FOR MORE OF MY ART, PLEASE VISIT MY WEB SITE AT WWW. NCRUZ.COM . Link below:

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by pop diva Madonna specifically as she portrayed the role of seductive Breathless Mahoney in the 1990 movie "Dick Tracy".

I used a 16-inch Simply Breathless doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company which I felt was the perfect canvas for this portrait repaint.

So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring Madonna's likeness to doll life.

Next was I transformed her hair style by giving her a hair cut and a heat perm. I then carefully styled the hair to replicate Madonna's in her movie character.

The small photo in the lower middle shows the doll as it originally looked before being repainted.

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, in this case using a pre-existing doll. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes
