Doll Repainted as Johnny Depp by noeling Doll Repainted as Johnny Depp by noeling

This repaint started out as Tonner's 17-inch Capt. Jack Sparrow. I wanted to recreate the likeness of Johnny Depp , not as Jack Sparrow, but just as himself. I removed all factory facial paint and completely repainted the doll to resemble Johnny Depp. The hair underwent extensive hair styling, starting with a haircut, then partial reroot to give his hair a middle part and to fill in sparse areas. Then hair was heat permed and styled to replicate Depp's. Lastly, I hand painted three of his tattoos.

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.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

The facial hair looks absolutely fantastic. I can't stop staring at his mustache. XD
Love how you de-characterized it into regular Johnny.

With that face, I'm almost expecting him to breathe!

Very nicely done, as always. Your skill at getting
the eyes is part of what really breathes life into
your works. It's very subtle, and that's what is
so great about your repaints.

Always enjoy seeing another of your dolls here!

Awesome, but the fact that the body has much less detail than the face makes it a bit creepy. It doesn't seem to cross the uncanny valley for me.
