Overseas orders are also welcome.



How The Process Works

First, complete my order form, upload your photo(s) and pay 20% deposit.

On receipt of order form and photo(s) I will check the photo(s) for quality and email you to confirm receipt and summary of your order.

When pencil portrait drawing is completed, first I will issue an email with an image for you to review and approve.

Then, if you approve, a link within the email will request the remaining 80% balance to be paid via PayPal.

Finally, when I receive confirmation of payment from PayPal I will insert into a padded envelope and ship via Royal Mail or Royal Mail International.

In addition, it will take between 1 to 8 weeks to complete depending on size and workload at the time, I will also consider the date pencil portrait(s) is required.

Pencil Portraits with Photographs

The photograph(s) you send to me should be clear and sharp. The quality and clarity of the photo will influence how much detail I can include. Therefore, a clear and focused photo will allow me to create a realistic pencil portrait. I can only draw what I see, therefore if the details are blurry or of low quality, the pencil portraits will reflect this. High-resolution photos are preferable – the higher the better.

If you will be taking a photo, please use a good camera or the latest phone/tablet cameras. Photos taken outside in daylight is preferable, close to your subject and at eye level.

I can also take people or pets from individual photos and combine them to create a group or family portrait.

Each drawing is sprayed with gloss varnish which forms a colourless glass clear coating, as a result this prevents smearing and smudging.

Commission/Order Pencil Portraits

If you are thinking about commissioning me to draw pencil portraits from your photograph, please view my price and information page. A full list of sizes I work with and prices are available. A non-refundable 20% deposit is payable to secure your order.

You can pay deposit when you complete my order-form and click on submit button. I accept all major debit or credit card using PayPal. When I receive the completed form or contact form, I will reply as soon as I can to confirm receipt.

Testimonials

Amazing work!

I asked for a pencil portrait of our family dog, Hamish, as a 50th wedding anniversary gift for my parents. The best photo I could provide was from my cell phone, and the resulting portrait is outstanding in detail. An incredibly skilled artist with the ability to recreate not only the image but also the character.

I Wanted a Special Gift

I wanted to gift a special gift to a very special friend and Mike made the most beautiful collage pencil portrait from a few very photos that I had which were downloaded from the net. The quality of the photos was very poor and not an easy task which Mike accomplished beautifully. Thank you so much Mike.
