Noel Cruz is a doll repaint artist, and an awesome one at that. He’s loved drawing and painting characters from his favorite TV shows since childhood, in particular Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers in The Bionic Woman. But it wasn’t until Cruz first encountered a repainted doll on eBay, thanks to his wife who’s a doll collector, that he thought, “Hey, I could do this too!” And now he’s one of the best in the doll painting community.

It took time and lots of practice for Cruz to adapt his skills from painting on wide, flat canvases to small, smooth plastic doll faces. Today his ability to transform factory-painted character and celebrity dolls into impeccably detailed, lifelike resemblances of the actual people on which they were based puts the original dolls to shame. Accomplishing this feat requires many photos of the famous person/character, plenty of time, and a great deal of skill.

To check out more of his stunning repainted dolls, check out Noel Cruz’s website and Facebook page. You can also follow him via Instagram and right here on Tumblr at noelcruzcreations. And, if you’ve got an urge to own one of his dolls, keep an eye on Cruz’s eBay auction listings.

My favorite genre is “starts out normal but then turns into really disturbing psychological horror”

I really wish there was more of that which was decently done…

I love how it looks like she’s hugging a terrifying, numerous-eyed Lovecraftian creature.

You mean that isn’t what’s happening here?

Clearly the last few ones are warnings of how close we are to unlocking forbidden Elderitch knowledge.

I finished a thing! This is the prettiest hammerhead shark, now in color! The design was originally drawn for my graphic design class but I liked it so much that I had to go and draw it a third time for all the internet to see! It may not be the best or most detailed thing I have ever drawn, but it is mine and I love it.

Shark is Everything and Nothing.
Shark is Life and Death.
Shark is War and Peace.
There has only been Shark.
There is only Shark.
There will only be Shark.
To be one with Shark is to be at peace with one’s self.
Praise be to its nautical eyelashes.
Amen.

So I recently did a homework assignment in graphic design class where we had to design black and white animal stamps with endangered species and one of my designs was just the prettiest hammerhead. It is my magnum opus and I had to digitize it. If only to try and drag my ass out of my terrible slump.
