I had quite a tight deadline for my sister’s birthday and Mike really did pull out all the stops to get it done in time, without compromising any of the quality. My sister was blown away. Would highly recommend.

Mike produced a pencil drawing of our 12 year old springer spaniel, Lotte whom sadly we lost this year. The drawing was absolutely fabulous, captured the image and personality of our springer and bought a tear to our eye when we saw the finished version. Excellent communications all the way too and smooth easy process with an unbelievable ending.

My husband and I made a portrait of his dad (who passed away last year) as a gift for his mum. She absolutely loved it. It’s very well made and beautiful. Very very realistic. We are extremely happy with it. Definitely will ask Mike again if we need another portrait done.

I found Mike on Google while looking for an artist to do a portrait for my mother-in-laws 70th, of her springer spaniel. My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of his work and were even more delighted when we received the picture – it was so life-like. My mother-in-law was also blown away and loved the picture. I also got Mike to do a picture of an engagement photo of my husband and I, it needed a bit of tweaking before I was satisfied – which is why it’s good to view beforehand – but Mike was very happy to adjust it until I was happy. The picture now has pride of place in our house and looks fantastic! I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.

I found Michael through google after my partners father died and I wanted to have a collage made of his portrait and the things that he loved in his life, together with a skyline of the town sketched along the bottom….. I provided photographs and a rough layout to him and he quoted a price and a delivery time. Mike has delivered on time and exactly as I wanted – in fact his drawing exceeded my expectation – copy below and despite needing more work he only charged his original quoted price…… I paid him extra against his protests! The quality of Mike’s work is astounding – I am happy to forward a copy of what he did for me or indeed to be contacted if necessary – through Mike ……. I will be using Mike again!

The pencil portrait Mike commissioned for me was amazing. The detail that he was able to go into was incredible, he managed to capture my pets personality so well even down to the twinkle in her eye.

I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone looking to get a portrait commissioned.

Thank you again, Mike.

I asked Mike to provide a drawing of my sons.

From the photo’s I sent, Mike produced an amazing quality pencil drawing and delivered it as agreed prior to Christmas. The whole process was very easy.

The images are incredible and almost appear to be photo-like standard although the pencil drawing gives the work a softer quality.

Thanks Mike.

I ordered a pencil portrait of my girlfriends dog and what I received was absolutely amazing! The drawing was an accurate reflection of the photo but also instilled a sense of artistic flair when viewing it. It took about 5-6 weeks for Mike to draw the portrait and the timeline was agreed in advanced so that it would be received before the Christmas holidays. Mike was responsive during the wait period and upfront on what needed to be provided, paid and agreed for. Definitely recommend if you wish to have a memory hand-drawn, it was well-worth the money and the best surprise I could give the girlfriend (besides a real dog).

I commissioned a framed portrait to present to a colleague as a farewell gift on behalf of 158 Provost Company Royal Military Police. Having received the portrait, we were genuinely amazed at the accuracy of the image. He truly managed to capture it perfectly. Utterly professional, Mike was in contact with us throughout the process and delivered exactly on time, despite the tight deadline requested by us. MCB Portraits cannot come more highly recommended.

Mike has been amazing from first contact – I ordered a picture of my wife’s dog for her birthday and I’m so so pleased with it – stunning artwork and great communication throughout the process. I would recommend Mike to anyone!

I have had two pencil drawings done from Mike – one of my dog and one of my Nan’s cottage. He has really captured the likeness of my dog and he has even included the glint in his eye. Since having the portrait done, he has sadly passed away but it is a beautiful reminder of him! The detail in the cottage is absolutely breathtaking. There was quite a lot of garden scenery but he has managed to capture every single bit of detail, which I imagine was very difficult. For the hours and effort that Mike must put into the drawings, the price is very reasonable! I would highly recommend MCB portraits to anyone and will definitely be using Mike again in the future.
