Inspired by his huge celebrity and the enormous success of the Twilight , this custom creation replicates hot young star Robert Pattinson in doll form.
I have previously created a doll based on his character of Edward Cullen, but I thought it would be exciting to create a custom repaint of Pattinson just as himself and not as Edward.
I used a 17-inch mass produced Edward Cullen doll by Robert Tonner Doll company. As is usually the case with mass produced dolls depicting celebrities, the sculpt is spot on but the doll suffers in the facial paint department, which is as crucial a process in capturing likeness.
So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring the likeness of Robert Pattinson referencing several photos of the star.
The hair underwent extensive and meticulous restyling to replicate Rob's oft disheveled style. Last, I hand painted delicate lines of hair along the hairline to soften the overall look. Sideburns were more accurately hand repainted as well.
The inset photo on the lower right hand corner shows the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen doll 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.
