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

Clearly, one of the more interesting characters from Pirates of the Caribbean, Naomie Harris brings color to her portrayal the imprisoned soul, Tia Dalma

This is the first time I recreate Tia Dalma's likeness in a doll. I use a 16-inch Tonner doll for this recreation.

As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. The doll also underwent extensive hair restyling - each dreadlock has been carefully created to match the character's. The inset photo shows the doll before customizaton.

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

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Tonner Doll company)

I'm thinking that you should be hired by these doll makers because your skill is incomperable!

She is a pretty fascinating character and after having browsing some of your work, I must say, this doll is my favourite so far. I wonder how long it takes you to create such wonderful work
