These two dolls are inspired by two of my favorite movie characters - Miranda Priestly as portrayed by Meryl Streep and Andrea Sachs as played by Anne Hathaway from the film "The Devil Wears Prada".

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of the characters and the subtle nuances of lifelike expressions.

The inset photos on the bottom portion show the mass produced version of the dolls 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

is it possible for you to, like, do this on a Barbie doll? Make it more realistic, and make it look like some famous characters or actors...

You are amazing! One of the most amazing artists I have ever seen! Your repaints are so lifelike; they look like you took the actual actors/people and shrunk them down to borrower size!! It's so cool!
Please don't ever cease to produce your artwork! =D

Your work is truly amazing. Have you considered working in conjunction with an action-figure manufacturer designing the head shapes / face paint of movie character action figures which will be mass-produced? People who buy dolls of their favourite character would surely appreciate your incredible attention to detail and love your designs - you could make a huge amount of money thru design royalties (and probably meet some of the movie stars you portray too!).

I'm glad to see I'm not the only male on the site who admires Anne Hathaway.

You have a lot more guts than I ever will for posting this.

What you do with their eyes and shading of faces is nothing short of awesome. (Reworking the hair too. And the costumes... You don't miss a thing.) Good luck with the auction. I'm sure you've made yourself quite a niche on eBay with these masterpieces. :)
