Doll Repaint of 1980s Madonna by noeling Doll Repaint of 1980s Madonna by noeling

I was commissioned to create this Madonna doll by an ardent British fan of Madonna, and I simply could not resist the opportunity. One of my favorite Madonna looks was from this period when she first emerged into the music scene with the punk rock 80s hair style and feathered eyebrows. This doll's particularly look is based upon her character from the movie "Desperately Seeking Susan".

Thorough hair styling and facial contouring were needed to bring Madonna's essence to life.

The clothes were also commissioned specifically for this doll created by a very talented doll seamstress and replicates Madonna's famous outfit from the movie, right down to the minute accessories.

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 work is amazing, do you work with 12 inch scale dolls? Or just with the Tonner size?

Funny how the original doll reminds me of Sophie Turner in the role of Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones.

Love all your dolls repaints, they're always so impressive.

I wouldn't be surprised if the stars themselves wouldn't want one of your repainted dolls.

This is so amazing. I'm in awe of your work all the time! Especially your Madonna dolls...I'm a pretty big fan. I wish that I had the money to commission you for a Mo doll from the True Blue period! What are your figures, generally?

You never cease to impress me, gotta say. Your work is so inspiring, how difficult is it to actually paint these? - 'cause I have to say, I'm thinking I'd like to try repainting sometime :aww:
