My Approach to Drawing from Photographs
The photograph(s) you send to me should be clear and sharp. It is essential to understand that the photo’s quality and clarity will favour the ultimate detail I can achieve; therefore, a bright and focused picture will allow me to create a realistic pencil drawing.
I can only draw what I reasonably see, so if the specific details are blurry or of inferior quality, the pencil drawing is likely to reflect this undoubtedly – so you can understand why high-resolution photos are preferable. The higher, the better!
My Style is naturally to draw precisely what I see in the photograph and typically exclude the background from the specific subject – unless you have expressly requested me to include the backdrop. The desired result is a photorealistic drawing that accurately captures the specific subjects’ likeness, character, and mood.
As standard, I supply my pencil portraits unframed, but I am more than happy to advise the possible types of frames suitable. If you would prefer me to frame your pencil portrait, I can provide this service from an online source, saving you the time and hassle of providing the exact fit yourself.
If you would like to upgrade your order to include a frame, the pencil portrait will be delivered neatly inserted into the preferred frame and carefully wrapped for ultimate protection. Please consider a selection of frames available in various colours.
