Pencil Portraits--True to Life Original Art
How Does Pencil Portraits Work?
Consider a portrait of a special person in your life from a rare photo you’ve always wanted restored or a montage of two or more irreplaceable photos. You probably have many of the same loved one, and although each one is priceless, an original work of art takes the subject to a whole new dimension. I can also bring another subject into the mix, creating a special portrait that is not possible with a camera.
Send us your favorite photograph(s)...First I need to see your good quality, well-lit photographs. Since each portrait is unique, I would prefer to work with a good likeness of the subject. All portraits are guaranteed to be a true-to-life representation of the photo you supply. Remember, the details in the finished portrait depend primarily upon the quality and focus of the photo submitted...ideally, a photograph where the face of the subject(s) is at least 2”. If I have a problem with your photograph(s), I will contact you prior to beginning your portrait. So, let me evaluate your project, at no obligation to you.
Choose the type of portrait you want...You can choose from many finished poses: Head & Shoulder, Full Bust, Full Body, Montage, and Family or Couple Groupings. Visit our Galleries for many examples of all these different poses. I would suggest that more than two subjects or a full body pose be rendered on the larger size. If you choose to combine photos, please give me an idea about positioning. If you have no preference, I can give you my best suggestion, do a quick sketch, and e-mail you prior to beginning your portrait.
Give me additional instructions about framing or matting...Let me know how you are going to matt or frame your Pencil Portrait. This will affect the size of the image.See the Pencil Portraits Order Info Form for more information on matting and framing.
