This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by comedian Steve Carell in his role as Maxwell Smart in the film "Get Smart".
I used a 17-inch Maxwell Smart doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company.

Complete removal of factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring out the likeness of Steve Carell. Hair has also been extensively reworked as the scale and shape is as just as essential to capturing the actor's likeness.

Bottom inset photo shows the doll as it was originally produced.

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

(Note: I am not in any way affiliated with the Tonner Doll company
