Michael Jackson as zombie by noeling Michael Jackson as zombie by noeling

Michael Jackson's music has inspired me since my childhood and many of his songs have actually been songs of my life. Therefore, it is only fitting that I pay tribute to a great artist who has inspired me a great deal.

Seeing the Michael Jackson figure produced by Hot Toys, I knew I had to take the opportunity to create a custom repaint, especially as it is perhaps his most popular and certainly iconic song and video as well.

This deviation depicts Michael Jackson as seen in the Thriller music video.

The MJ Hot Toys set originally came with two interchangeable heads, one of MJ as himself and one as a zombie. This is the repaint of the zombie head.

The inset photo on the bottom middle shows the mass produced version of the Hot Toys MJ head as it was 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

Really excellent work. Aside from growing up with this one, and being a huge fan of MJ, I studied this video for reference on a few zombie makeup projects. Your repaint is absolutely spot-on.
