These Tonner doll sculpts are not the easiest in terms of bringing out the essence of the characters/actors portrayed. But as an artist, I believe in challenging oneself in order to grow.

The dolls used are 15 1/2 inch and 17 1/2 inch Bella and Edward dolls by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, particularly as seen in the Twilight sequel, Eclipse. I wanted to specifically capture the angst filled expression of Edward from the poster.

The inset photos on the bottom show the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan doll as they were originally released.

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

Would love to see a little video of you actually painting a doll, Your method is wonderful and your style is outstanding! As for the cost, if the market will bear such prices, then they get to own a masterpiece! Bravo!
