What Photo?

Choose the Right Photograph. When
choosing your photograph try and
find a large picture to work from.
I can draw good portraits from a
small photo but the larger the
original photo the more detail I
can extract from it.

The key to a good portrait is
shading, and so a photo taken
in natural light will get better
results than a photo where the
subject's face is washed out by
flash.

Try to find a picture where one
side of the face is distinctly
darker than the other as this will
give the portrait depth and form,
but even a picture taken with
strong flash can be used to draw
a good pencil portrait.

Above all choose a good picture
where they really look like
themselves. Don't use the one
photo where they're not
themselves. Remember what I see
on the photo is what I draw!

Once you've chosen the photo you
want,tell me what you want me to
draw from it. Do you want one
person in the portrait, 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 photos will be returned to you
along with the completed pencil
portrait. I aim to have all
portraits finished within 14 days
of commission, but this may vary
with demand.
