These dolls are inspired by the hit tv series "The Vampire Diaries" featuring Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert, Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore and Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore.

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

This looks wonderful although Damin looks a little drugged or tired. I think that is just the lighting though. Great work!

Your dolls are absolutely GORGEOUS!
What I love: You nailed the eyes PERFECTLY. They even look quite animated, enchanting. The contouring of the face shape is also my favorite. You nailed Nina's square yet small jawline, Damon's squared and angular one and Stephen's pointed and sharp one. The cheek bones are also fantastic! Placement of all the features and proportions are perfect!
However, there a very small touch ups that I would consider, just to make it more gorgeous and perfect than it already is!

Nina's hairline: The smaller side of Nina's part is a bit off. Nina(real Nina) actually has a very rounded and slightly wide forhead because of her slightly heart shaped face. I would consider manipulating that darker piece of hair
closest to her right eyebrow so that it frames her face in a way that causes it to look a bit wider, but only a SLIGHT alteration. :)

The space between Stephen's eyebrows- I would suggest adding some contour directly below this area, especially below the brows themselves.Adding this will brighten and emphasise the area above the contour, creating the illusion of Stephen's eyebrow overhang, which actor Paul Wesley has alot of. Once again, I would only do this subtely.

I would do the same as above for Damon, but after creating contour directly under where his eyebrow ends, only slightly add a bit more after that. There should be less contouring in this area then with Stephen, because while Ian does have SOME eyebrow overhang, it's definently not as prominent as Paul's.

The sides of Nina(Elena) and Paul's(Stephen's) nose- I would add some contouring on the sides of both their noses to make their eyes seem closer together. With Stephen, i woulde end the contouring just above (I don't know what's it's called: the skin.tissue flaps that surround one's nostrils) where those start. With Nina's nose I would continue contouring until
you reach right where the nose ends, so to darken up the flappy things on the sides of the nostrils just slightly because while the bulb of Nina's nose is quite rounded, the flappy sides of he nose are relatively narrow, which is what gives Nina's nose such a unique shape.

I would also like to point out the Nina's nose bridge is also more narrow than Paul's nose or your Elena doll's.You might consider more contour shading starting from the very corner of her eye to ending about 2/5 into the bridge of her nose.You should continue contouring all the way down her nose.

Finally, Nina's eyebrows are a bit more close set than your doll's. I would consider elongating both her eyebrows about 1/5 into the bridge of her nose and connecting the contouring I suggested above to the very tip of each of her eyebrows.

If you want me to elaborate on the tangled mess of words above, I'd be happy to. XD
Sorry I got so specific and wrote so much. I just noticed some people were commenting about how the likeliness wasn't as up to par as your usual pieces, yet they didn't elaborate, so I just thought I'd point out a few touchups that could be made. But, I think these dolls are beautifully done even without touchups, and there is definently strong likeliness!
Truly exceptional!!

You have perfectly captured the contours of the vampires' visages.

Elena Gilbert needs some more work done though.
