Pencil Drawings of People and Pets from Photos

To begin with, I would like to thank you for coming to look at my work. I am Mike, a self-taught pencil artist with decades of experience producing hand-drawn pencil portraits from photos. Exquisite, meaningful works of art drawn with nothing more than my drawing pad and trusty studio pencil

The beautiful aesthetic that pencil portrait drawings can portray is something extremely rare and unique, which is why I’ve made it my purpose to produce some of the most elegant and striking picture drawings to capture every feeling.

When it comes to art, I am a firm believer in the value of every detail, and it is because of this unique approach that I am able to produce the highest-quality, photo-realistic drawings of people and animal portraits and image drawings for any client who puts their faith in me. I take Commissions in the United Kingdom and Worldwide.

Photos for Drawing Portraits in Pencil

Photographs are my number one source of inspiration for the best pencil drawings of people from photographs. Whether it’s pet pencil portraits from photos or a nature snapshot that someone’s grabbed in the wild, you’ll never be short of inspiration for your drawings. There’s something special about transforming a photograph into a pencil portrait. It captures a moment in time in a unique way while adding a touch of personality.

There is nothing I love more than transforming my clients’ meaningful photographs into pencil portraits that capture the unique features of the subject. We live in an age where we can create beautiful digital pictures in just one click. If you seek something a little more creative, personal, and memorable, I can provide the perfect photorealistic drawings from photos that capture the likeness, mood, and personality of the subjects.

The photograph(s) you send to me should be clear and sharp. It is essential to understand that the photo’s quality and clarity will favourably influence the ultimate level of detail I can achieve; therefore, a bright and focused picture will allow me to create a realistic drawing.

Having drawn hundreds of drawings from photos for my customers in the United Kingdom and worldwide, I can generously lend my creative hand to any person, animal, vehicle, building or landscape that undoubtedly means something to you or a loved one. Many people worldwide place orders with me as gifts for loved ones, and I would be glad to draw a unique sketch to serve as a memorable gift for Christmas, Birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries, Weddings, Mother’s Day, or Father’s Day.

There are many talented portrait artists in the UK. Still, I know exactly how important it is to discover the appropriate artist – one who can accurately deliver the exact style you are after.

I have consistently maintained a passion for drawing, and it was a hobby that gradually developed into my full-time profession. Over the formative years, I have sharpened my creative skills and now specialise in drawing from countless photos.

The best way to get a taste of my approach is to view some of my recent artworks in my gallery.

Photorealistic

I turn photos into drawings to create the best pencil portraits. Each drawing is a photorealistic capturing of the subject, typically without a background. My goal is to capture the essence of every subject, bringing their personality and likeness to life with every pencil stroke. You can see samples of my work on Pinterest, where I share a variety of my pencil sketch portraits based on photographs.

How to Order/Commission Pencil Portraits

Ordering your pencil drawing couldn’t be easier – it’s a simple three-step process. I take a 20% deposit, which is when you’ll submit your photographs via my order form. I’ll check the quality to make sure it’s workable before I get started on your artwork. You’ll receive an image of the pencil sketch to approve once it’s done and dusted. After your remaining balance is paid, your pencil drawing will be safely on its way to you.

Hand Drawn Pencil Portraits

Pet portraits in pencil drawn from photos is also unique and can be a great gift for any occasion.
