8x10 Full Color Pencil Portrait of 1 Person
Metallic Highlight on Illustrated Border
I need my portrait by July 10
I would like the attached black & white photo of my grandparents drawn in colored pencils.
I have attached a scan of the original photo, and more recent additional color photos of my
grandparents so you can see their skin tones and hair color. My grandmother's dress should
be baby blue with white lace and my grandfather's shirt should be navy blue, the bow tie is
red. I want their portrait drawn in style that you used for your portrait of Baby V. I would like a
border drawn on the portrait like the one here: (include link to webpage) in gold.
I finish portraits as quickly as possible given each individual portrait's size, media, style and special needs. If you would like your portrait drawn directly from a refernce photo with a plain background and only minor changes I may finish in as soon as 3 days for a 4x6 Ink Portrait of one person to as long as 3 weeks for a 9x12 Color Pencil Portrait of two people. If you want a background drawn in or special design work like drawing someone as their favorite fictional character I will need more time. Once I have your reference photos I may take a couple of days to discuss with you the style or theme you want, especially if you need me to come up with a Full Illustrated Background or Border Design. Every portrait is different and takes its own amount of time. If your request if very detailed I may create preliminary sketches to make sure I understand what you need. I will e-mail you a final image of your portrait to confirm it is what you like before mailing it off to you.
