I mostly work from photographs, because the portrait is often used as a gift for unsuspecting loved ones. Sometimes the client will ask if it can be drawn or painted from multiple photographs, in order to capture a particular expression, a favorite outfit and a hairdo from another. Whatever is needed will be incorporated into the completed pencil Portrait. On more than one occasion the client will ask at the last minute to include their pet into the artwork, making it that much more a personal family portrait.
A pencil portrait can capture as much detail and realism as an oil painting portrait. The comments and positive feedback I have received over the years has been overwhelming. Some have even called my pencil portraits "pencil paintings." A Pencil Portrait drawn from your photograph makes a unique personalized Gift for any occasion and all you have to do is provide me with a Photograph. Pencil Portraits drawn from your photos make unique presents sure to become Family Heirlooms that will be treasured and passed on for generations. Immortalize your Loved Ones with hand drawn pencil portraits.
Give an everlasting gift with a pencil portrait drawn from a photo. Portraits drawn from your photographs make perfect personalized presents for any occasion. Think of the Joy your family members will feel when they open a present and see a Portrait of themselves or Loved Ones. Pencil Portraits make a Special Gift for Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Graduation, Weddings, Birthdays or just because... A finely drawn pencil portrait makes a perfect gift for all occasions. By working from photos you can keep your gift absolutely secret! If you want to commission a pencil portrait of a loved one (or yourself) you can do so without having to spend hours in a studio. Want a pencil portrait drawn of several people but don't have a Photo of them together? I can combine them from different photographs
Choose the Right Photograph for your pencil portrait. Try and find a large photo for me to work from. I can draw a good pencil portrait from a small photo but the larger the original photo the more detail I can get from it. The key to a great pencil portrait is details and in the shadows, so a photo taken in natural light will get better results than a picture where the subject's face is washed out by flash. Try to find a photo where one side of the face is distinctly darker than the other as this will give the pencil portrait depth and form, but even a photo taken with strong flash can be used to draw a good portrait. Above all choose a good picture where they really look like themselves. (this may sound silly, but it makes all of the difference) Remember what I see on the photograph is what I draw!
Once you've chosen the photograph for your portrait, tell me what you want me to draw from it. Do you want one person or several? Do you want just their face, or would you like their shoulders as well? Without this information I cannot guarantee I will draw exactly what you want. All photographs will be returned to you along with your completed portraits. All pencil portraits are completed within 10 days of commission, unless you need it sooner.
