This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by an outtake from the film Gone With The Wind that never made it to the final film. Inset photos shows the doll in different stages of the repaint.

I used a 16-inch Scarlett O'hara doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Vivien Leigh as Scarlett from that particular scene.

The doll's hair has been completely restyled.

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.

WHITNEY HOUSTON TRIBUTE: (1963 - 2012)

---- Farewell and thank you to an artist whose music has become a soundtrack of my life in many ways.

It is with great pride that I share my latest creation - my humble tribute to "the Voice", Ms. Whitney Houston. Whitney Houston's music has touched me in more ways than any other singer/artist and I am glad that I could pay respects to this legendary artist.

Hair rework and extensive full facial makeover were needed to bring Whitney Houston's features to life on this 11 1/2 inch doll. Inset photo on the bottom shows the factory version.

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by Vivien Leigh's much acclaimed portrayal as Scarlett O'hara from the now timeless classic, "Gone With The Wind", particularly as she looked in her famous portrait in the film wearing a magnificent blue dress.

I used a 16-inch Scarlett O'hara doll here produced by Robert Tonner Doll company. I completely removed factory facial painting and hand painted it to more faithfully replicate Vivien Leigh as Scarlett from that particular scene I had to pay careful attention to have the doll's expression reflect the same expression as Scarlett from the portrait.

The doll's hair has been completely restyled.

The photo on the bottom 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.

A tribute to one of the most iconic Hollywood screen characters, as portrayed by the incomparable Ms. Vivien Leigh. This version depicts Scarlett's pensive expression and melancholy as she bids goodbye to Ashley on his way back to rejoin the army against the Yankees. It turns out this version also fits perfectly in the green dress where she gets frustrated over not having been able to secure the money to pay taxes on Tara.

Full facial repaint and shading as well as extensive hair style make over to replicate the features of the character and the subtle nuances of lifelike expressions.

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.
