*I’m booked up to 13 March 2018.
How The Process Works
First, complete my order form, upload your photo(s) and click submit button, you will then be forwarded to PayPal to pay non-refundable 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(s) are 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.
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.
