With the huge following and popularity that "The Vampire Diaries" has gained and with Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd create Damon Salvatore, sinister vampire from the hit tv show. Ian Somerhalder portrays the character along with Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore and Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert.

I use Tonner Doll Company's factory produced Damon Salvatore doll. The inset photo at the bottom middle shows the doll in its original factory state.

As with all my creations, I completely strip the original factory paint on each of the dolls, and completely repaint the facial features in, paying attention to accuracy of likeness and lifelike expressions. The doll also underwent extensive hair rework to match the proportions of the face. .

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

How do you make the stubble on her face look so real. Maybe you should do a tutorial on how you make the dolls face look so real. I'd really appreciate it if you could.

A peice of natural sponge might have been used. Breaking a part of it off and sticking it with a toothpick or some other implement allows for the right amount texture.
