Another custom interpretation inspired by the dashing British actor Orlando Bloom in his portrayal of Will Turner in Pirates of the Caribbean. This rendition portrays a cleaner-looking Will as he prepares for his supposed wedding to Ms. Swann, which of course never happened in the movie. His expression and detail are also somewhat different from my first one.

I used a 17-inch Will Turner produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. As is usually the case with mass produced dolls depicting celebrities, the sculpt is spot on but the doll suffers in the facial paint department, which is as crucial a process in capturing likeness.

So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring the likeness of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner to lfe, paying careful attention to proper facial expression.

The hair underwent extensive and meticulous restyling. First, I cut the hair to a shorter length. Then I heat permed the hair to give it the needed wave. Finally, I layered the hair by running the scissors along the length of the hair. This also reduces the hair's volume and thickness down to proper scale. Last, I handpainted delicate lines of hair along the hairline to soften the overall look. Sideburns were more accurately hand repainted as well.

The inset photo shows the Will Turner doll as it was 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 . Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes
