You know how when Mattel puts out a doll based on an iconic celebrity or a movie character it never actually looks like that person, but just one of Barbie's generic friends? Portrait artist Noel Cruz has proven that an accurate recreation is simply a matter of some extra effort and a lot of talent. He "repaints" dolls, transforming them from "Well, I guess that kinda looks like Diana Ross" to amazingly realistic representations of the people they're supposed to be.
