Well, it has both been a relief and tremendous satisfaction to finally pay proper tribute to the People's Princess. I am pleased to share my latest creation created out of a Franklin Mint Princess Diana. It has been so much fun undertaking this project.

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

This celebrity doll repaint was inspired by an outtake from the film Gone With The Wind that never made it to the final film.

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.

This photo was taken last year shortly after creating this custom repainted 17-inch Elvira which sold on ebay last year and is now in a private collection. However, since Halloween is approaching, I thought I'd share this image here.

This doll underwent hair restyling to better replicate Elvira's. As with all my custom repainted dolls, I remove the original factory makeup. I then repaint the character's features paying attention to precision and accuracy as well as true to life facial expression.

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.

Michael Jackson's music has inspired me since my childhood and many of his songs have actually been songs of my life. Therefore, it is only fitting that I pay tribute to a great artist who has inspired me a great deal.

Seeing the Michael Jackson figure produced by Hot Toys, I knew I had to take the opportunity to create a custom repaint, especially as it is perhaps his most popular and certainly iconic song and video as well.

This deviation depicts Michael Jackson as himself as he looked in the Thriller music video. Full facial repaint to bring out the true essence of MJ. Hair sections along the forehead have been carefully resculpted and painted to create a softer, more natural look.

The MJ Hot Toys set originally came with two interchangeable heads, one of MJ as himself and one as a zombie.

I have had requests to feature my art pictured next to me, mostly for the purpose of getting a sense of scale of the dolls. so here is another one.

I have previously created doll repaints of Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. However, I have always created them at very separate times and have never been physically together as a group. This time, I've decided to create a group of four of the main characters from the movie. Also, the Jack, Will and Elizabeth dolls here are somewhat different from the ones I've created in the past with regards to facial expression hair styling and overall detail. This is the first time I recreate Tia Dalma's likeness in a doll.

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. They each underwent extensive hair styling as well. The Jack doll features a hand painted tattoo as well as hand crafted authentic hair ornaments. The design on his bandana was also handpainted. Tia Dalma and Jack were both given authentic dreadlocks. It took several weeks to complete this group due to the amount of work involved.

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.
