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

This doll started out as 16-inch Mrs. Coulter doll from the Golden Compass Series produced by Tonner & Co.

Factory facial paint was rather dismal. So I completely removed original factory paint and started with a blank canvas to accurately replicate Nicole's features. Doll was also given complete hair style make over copying one of her many hair styles from a couple of years back.

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 while paying careful attention to proper scale.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

I absolutely Love Nicole Kidman. I've creepishly stalked and bought all of her movies... hah - She is one of my favorite actresses, if not my favorite. You did an amazing job, right away I knew who she was without even reading. Thank you for posting.

Holy smokes that's amazing. Her eyes are spot-on... and I imagine they're the hardest things to paint.

Wow, she's really "smiling with her eyes" here! That is absolutely amazing what you did!

The original doll looks totally nothing like Nicole, and actually looks dead and lifeless. You can really accomplish something amazing.

Wow. I've seen many of your repaints. At first, I thought, who would waste their time doing something so small? But as I look at more of your work, I realize that you give the dolls a whole new identity. They're so dull and boring, and the moment you start to repaint, they are deeper, more beautiful.

The difference is not so dramatic here as with some of your other work, but that's not to say it's not good.
