Meet one of the most distinguished repaint artists in the doll community, Noel Cruz.

Noel Cruz

“He is most recognized for his character & celebrity based dolls due to their uncanny resemblance to the people they portray. His dolls are derived from several models like Gene, Tyler, Sydney, etc, by various doll-makers such as Robert Tonner & Franklin Mint.”-


With today’s technology and computer scanning, many dolls have a close likeness of the actor. Noel has taken his skill as a painter, and took it one step further. Instead of painting on a flat canvas, he would paint on a 3D curved surface. The result is nothing but astonishing. What is amazing is that you can see in some sample pictures, a comparison of the “Before” (stock doll) and “After” (with Noel's artistic touch).


He has been selling many of his pieces on Ebay, with prices from $500 fetching upwards to $3,000+. His custom repaints are considered by many collectors to be a “work of art”. All of the pictures in this article are from (and credited to) his website He also does commission work!
