How to Order Your Portrait

From your photo...... the drawing..... a special gift

STEP 1 - Choose your Photo

When choosing your photos, try to keep these things in mind:

Is the image in a good resolution/high quality/filter free image?

Is the angle flattering and in proportion?

Does your image capture the best to show off the personality of the subject?

You may have a particular image in mind for your artwork. It is still advisable to send over multiple images for me to reference to get your artwork as close to reality as I can.
