My Approach to Pencil Sketch from Photographs

My style is to draw accurately what I see in the photograph, except for the background unless you have requested that I include the backdrop. The aim is to create a drawing that accurately captures the subjects’ likeness, character, and mood. High-resolution photos are preferable, the higher the number, the better!

I also create family pencil portraits whilst also drawing family portraits from individual photographs onto A4, A3 or A2 drawing pads. Pet portraits are also an option.

My hand-drawn pencil portraits are delivered unframed as standard; however, I am happy to frame the pencil portrait for you. Please select a frame from my frames page by clicking on the link in the footer. I can provide this service from an online source, saving you a lot of time and hassle doing it yourself.

If you do choose to include a frame with your order, the pencil portrait will be delivered neatly inserted into the frame and carefully wrapped for maximum protection.

Photograph Considerations

When taking photos, please use a capable camera or the most recent phone/tablet camera.

Photos taken outside in daylight, close to your subject, and at eye level are preferable. I can also combine people or pets from separate images to create a group or family pencil portrait.

Why Choose Me?

There are many talented artists in the UK, but I know how important it is to choose the right Pencil Artist – one who can deliver the exact style you are searching for.

I’ve always had a thing for sketching from photos, and it started out as a hobby that turned into a full-time job. I’ve honed my creative abilities over the years and now specialise in drawing from countless photographs.

Viewing some of my recent works of art in my gallery is the best way to get a sense of my approach, but here are just a few reasons why you should consider putting your trust in me for photorealistic pencil portraits:

Drawings from photos take between 1 to 8 weeks to complete depending on size and workload at the time and I will also consider the date pencil portrait is required.
