This particular custom repaint is a depiction of a flashback scene from the hit series, where the story is set in the year 1864 - the year Damon was turned into a vampire.
I use Tonner Doll Company's factory produced Damon Salvatore doll. The left-hand photo 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 for authenticity and 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
