In celebration of the upcoming Halloween season, I am very excited to present my latest custom face up - Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy. Zombie Boy rose to fame for his heavily tattooed body as a statement of art showing the human body as a decomposing corpse. He was also a featured character in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" music video.
I use Tonner Doll Company's factory produced Zombie Boy doll. The inset photo at the bottom right 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.
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

Oh wow!! This is absolutely amazing!
I bet this was one of the hardest dolls to repaint, wasn't it??
You really did a great job on that!
so is the doll
I am amazed because it looks so real
