***********************************************

NOTE: This photo replicates the essence of the scene from "New Moon" where Edward makes a decision to leave Bella.

***********************************************

These dolls presented quite a bit of challenge in terms of replicating the likenesses of not only the respective actors but the character they portray. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen showed anguish as the tormented vampire which I wanted to capture. It involved a great deal of facial shading,mostly subtle, to bring out that expression. Kristen Stewart as Bella on the other hand portrayed quiet simplicity in her features which looked deceivingly easy but proved really challenging. She wore very minimal makeup and expression had a lot of subtext involved and I wanted to recreate it in doll form. again, Careful and strategic shading and paint-contouring brought that out.

The dolls used are 15 1/2 inch and 17 1/2 inch Bella and Edward dolls by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, particularly as they appeared in the Twilight sequel, New Moon. This is by far my most ambitious undertaking of an Edward repaint because of all the shading that needed to be done on his torso to approximate his look from New Moon.

The inset photos on the upper middle show the mass produced version of the Edward Cullen and Bella Swan doll 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

I'm pretty much the opposite of a Twilight fan, but I can still appreciate the immense talent of your repaint here. Very well done.

I'm very curious - how much did these two dolls sell for, if you don't mind me asking?

Your work is unique and incredible :)

Your art is fantastic. I believe you've put to shame many of even the best doll companies from the US and Japan. What a wonderful talent you have. I'm always amazed, but these recently created pieces are especially nice. Keep it up :)
