Now something different from my usuall art. Few weeks ago I bought this doll and finally found some time to repaint her. I love crafts like this, it's really relaxing for me. I need to buy more dolls! :D and learn how to make tiny wigs for full doll makeovers!

Can I just say your eyebrows are on point, I love the final version. I wanted to comment though that fineliners and permanent markers in general are not usually recommended for faceups. They tend to stain the doll, despite the msc and can also disrupt the sealant from curing properly. Gouache and Acrylic paint are a better alternative for eyeliner. If you aren't worried about changing the faceup ever and don't care about permanence then fineliners should be fine. Just a tip! Keep it up :D

Jak na pierwszy repaint i tak wyszło Ci bardzo dobrze ;) To jest jednak trudniejsze, niż się wydaje, wiem bo sama się męczę :/ Coś Ci tylko podpowiem - żeby efekt był jednak czytelniejszy i mniej "wszystko na wszystkim", staraj się robić cieńsze linie, mniej "szkicu na szkicu" i więcej warstw MSC między warstwami kredki i pasteli. A poza tym na początek lepszy moim zdaniem jest matowy, bezbarwny lakier samochodowy Ranal, ma bardziej matową powierzchnię, kredka się lepiej trzyma, czy tam prowadzi po powierzchni... MSC jest tylko lepszy konserwująco, pierwsze lalki to i tak pewnie pójdą na kolejne przemalowanie, więc nie ma to znaczenia xD

looking good <3
I love painting dolls too, but MH and BJDs ^^ Can highly recommend playing with acrylic yarn for wigs, if you don't want super long hair. It's cheap and a good place to start.

Looks great! I want to do this to my monster high doll, and restyle her hair completely and make her some new clothes :)

somehow, this looks exactly like your drawing style (which I guess makes sense)

Bardzo fajny i ciekawy tutorial, zawsze zastanawiałam się od czego się zaczyna przy przerabianiu twarzy takich lalek. :D

Compliment, it turned out well! She looks so lively and expressive! I know the feeling well.
I immagine how my work should look like and after a first attempt it doesn´t at all...XD
Then I retry again and it gets at least a little better than before.
I also hide a dark secret...(XP) I "experiment" with dolls, too.

She looks amazing! And making doll wigs is so much fun, especially with yarn. So many colors.

I've been so tempted to give this a try myself, as I watch doll repaints on Youtube ALL THE TIME.

But I'm so terrified to make the commitment. :(

Same, I've had the idea swimming in my head but I'm afraid of it coming out the way I wanted. Hopefully I will at least attempt this once, it looks like a lot of fun to do.
Majigirl's avatar
It looks like so much fun and I'm sure the end result is totally worth it! I'm just the afraid of failing type :T
