What Photo?

Choose the Right Photograph. When choosing your photograph try and find a large photo to work from. I can draw a good pencil portrait from a small photo but the larger the original photo the more detail I can extract from it.

The key to a good pencil portrait is shading, and so a photo taken in natural light will get better results than a picture where the subject's face is washed out by flash. Try to find a photo where one side of the face is distinctly darker than the other as this will give the pencil portrait depth and form, but even a photo taken with strong flash can be used to draw a good pencil portrait.

Above all choose a good picture where they really look like themselves. Don't use the one photo where they're not themselves. Remember what I see on the photograph is what I draw!

Once you've chosen the photograph you want,tell me what you want me to draw from it. Do you want one person in the pencil portrait, or several? Do you want just their face,or would you like their shoulders as well? Without this information I cannot guarantee I will draw exactly what you want.

All photographs will be returned to you along with your completed work-of-art. I aim to have all pencil portraits finished within 10 days of commission, but this may vary with demand.
