Keira Knightley Repaint Doll by noeling Keira Knightley Repaint Doll by noeling

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by the British actress Keira Knightley.

I used a 16-inch Elizabeth Swann doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company - a finely made facial sculpt but the facial paint was something I found quite unsatisfactory and which I felt did not really reflect the character portrayed by Keira nor captured her likeness.

So, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Knightley to life. The doll's hair has been partially rerooted with additional hair as some of the areas were sparsely rooted. Then I gave her hair a soft perm for just some very subtle waves.

The inset photo shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.

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 original definitely doesn't have the appropriate amount of pucker Keira Knightley tends to affect for photo opts.

You are extremely talented!! At first I thought it was an actual picture of Keira Knightly!
How you get all those little details in on such a small surface just amazes me.

A perfect rendering. You certainly did Keira Knightley's beauty justice. When I zoomed into her eyes, I felt as though I were looking at a photograph. Beautiful.

That's so cool! What size brush did you use? Do you remember where you got them? I have been trying to find brushes that small for ages, but no dice.... I wish I was as good at detail work.

The only thing that I see "wrong" (and even then, it's kinda insignificant and isn't even technically "wrong" but there isn't another word that I can think of) is the fact that her face is slightly darker than her neck. But then, you see that on people all the time. Their makeup is generally a shade darker or lighter than their skin tone, and so their face is a different shade than their neck.
