This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by the lovely Anne Hathaway in her role as Agent 99 in the film "Get Smart", particularly as she looked during the ballroom scene.

I used a 16-inch "Get Smart" Agent 99 doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company.

So, the first order of business was to completely remove factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Hathaway to life, paying careful attention to her makeup from the specific scene.

Next, I reworked her hair by trimming and thinning it down to scale.

Bottom inset photo shows the doll as it was originally produced.

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.

In anticipation of the upcoming Twilight saga, "Breaking Dawn", I thought it would be exciting to create the two lead actors that played the central characters from the Twilight series of movies.

I have decided to recreate the actors, instead of the characters they portrayed.

The doll used is a 15 1/2 inch Bella doll by Robert Tonner. Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of Kristen Stewart, particularly as she appeared in the recent MTV awards.

The inset photo on the bottom shows the mass produced version of the doll used as it was originally released.

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by the British actress Keira Knightley.

I used a 16-inch Elizabeth Swann doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company - a finely made facial sculpt but the facial paint was something I found quite unsatisfactory and which I felt did not really reflect the character portrayed by Keira nor captured her likeness.

So, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to bring the likeness of Ms. Knightley to life. The doll's hair has been partially rerooted with additional hair as some of the areas were sparsely rooted. Then I gave her hair a soft perm for just some very subtle waves.

The inset photo shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.

I thought the Mattel 12 inch Jack Sparrow was a fantastic sculpt of Johnny Depp and so I decided to transform the doll into the iconic actor.

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. The doll also underwent dramatic hair restyling. Also I hand painted a total of 9 tattoos.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic favorite "Breakfast at Tiffany's. As a special tribute, I am pleased to create a custom face up of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly.

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by comedian Steve Carell in his role as Maxwell Smart in the film "Get Smart".
I used a 17-inch Maxwell Smart doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company.

Complete removal of factory facial painting. I then hand painted it to bring out the likeness of Steve Carell. Hair has also been extensively reworked as the scale and shape is as just as essential to capturing the actor's likeness.

Jack Sparrow is clearly one of my all-time favorite movie characters, perfectly portrayed by the brilliant Johnny Depp.
Although, I've done a few Jack Sparrow dolls previously, no two are ever alike. This one in particular is unique for its scale. This is the first Jack Sparrow I have created on a 1/6 scale (12 inch). Also, this repaint is based from the latest installment of POTC , "On Stranger Tides".

I used a Mattel Jack Sparrow doll for this recreation. 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 restyling - each dredlock has been carefully created to match the character's. In addition, I hand painted Jack's sparrow tattoo and his branded "P" mark.

Lindsay Wagner has been my all-time idol since I was 14 years old. I remember being captivated by her beauty when I first saw her on tv in 1976 playing the Bionic Woman Jaime Sommers. Back then I was just barely learning how to draw faces - and upon seeing Lindsay's exquisite features, she became a constant subject of my portraiture endeavors. And seeing her in person for the first time in 2006 and presenting her with a portrait I had done of her was a truly surreal moment of my life.

Anyway, here's my little tribute to her in doll form. I used a 16-inch Mrs. Coulter doll from the Golden Compass Series produced by Tonner & Co. I thought the sculpt was just perfect for Lindsay's 3-d portrait.

I completely removed original factory paint and started with a blank canvas to replicate Ms. Wagner's features. Also, I had to partially reroot the doll's hair to give it fullness and to create a middle part. Then I cut and heat styled her hair just as Ms. Wagner looked in her 70s tv series.

Cher is, without a doubt, one of the most eccentric and controversial divas of our time and I'm very impressed with Mattel's Barbie-sized sculpt of Cher, but I felt that I could improve upon the factory facial paint.

So , as I always do, I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted the doll to create a faithful replica of Cher's features particularly as she looked during the 1970s and especially inspired by her look in her "Half Breed" video, where she wears a Native American fantasy costume designed by the famous Bob Mackie.

The doll's hair has been also been reworked. I gave it a light trim and then thinned down the thickness of the doll's hair by running the scissors along the length of the hair.

The inset photo on the bottom middle shows the doll as it looked originally before repainting.
