  • To compliment your newly commissioned Portrait, I also supply a card picture mount completely free-of-charge with every portrait, so all you'll need to do is choose a frame.

Your portrait will only be as good as the reference used to draw it. I review every photo for quality approval before accepting any order. Please read the notes and tips below.

Important Notes:

I work primarily from one photo for the face. Choose the photo you feel best describes the subject's looks and personality. If you can't decide on one, you may submit more than one photo, and we can discuss them.

For a portrait of more than one person, I can use separate photos. However, I recommend that the photos have similar lighting and viewpoints. (You would not want one photo outside, back or side-lit, and the other photo indoors with flash.) The drawing will look more unified if the light comes from the same direction in all photos.

Scanning Photo Prints:
If you’d like to scan your valuable photo print so that you can upload it rather than mail it, here are some guidelines:
  • If the face in the photo is larger than 2 inches, scan at 200 dpi.
  • If the face is between 1 and 2 inches, scan at 300 dpi.
  • If the face is between ½ and 1 inch, scan at 600 dpi.
  • If the face is less than ½ inch, it may be too small to work with. THE EXCEPTION: Some antique photos are very crisp even in small details. If this is true of yours, scan faces this small at 1200 dpi. You may want to crop the image in the scanner's preview window to just around the head and chest before scanning, to reduce the file size.
