I have prepared this commission portrait info guide:

PHOTO
The better the photo, the better the portrait. Please choose a large clear photo that shows your personality. No small, blurry, blown-out photos. To enquire, you can email me several photographs for selection and we can decide together.

BACKGROUNDS
I don’t normally do backgrounds as I prefer the focus to be on the portrait, however, if you require a background please let me know beforehand.

MEDIUM
You can choose whether you would like a pastel drawing or a colored pencil drawing. For examples of my work within those areas, please refer to the WORK GALLERY (below).

SIZE
Smaller sizes are ideal for portraits with a single subject. Medium and large sizes are best for portraits with multiple subjects.
Your choice may depend on the number of subjects in your portrait and your budget.

PRICING
My prices depend on the size of the portrait, the number of subjects, and whether you would like a more detailed approach. Each portrait takes many hours to complete, so multiple subjects, additional details, may affect the final price. (No surprise charges, we will always agree on it first) A lot of time goes into making sure you end up with exceptional custom artwork.

CONTACT ME
Once you have an idea in mind, contact me through the form in the contact section. You can then send me some photos so I can review them and we can discuss details. On occasion, I can provide digital mock-ups so you can have a sense of the way I am going with the art. At this stage any questions or concerns you may have please let me know to make sure I can give the best possible artwork. For more commission portrait info, contact me.

PAYMENT INFORMATION
Once all the details of your custom portrait are decided, I will send you an invoice for 50% of the total balance, which I will require payment before beginning working on the portrait. The final 50% are due once the work is finished, and you’re satisfied with the result. (before shipping)
Payments can be made through PayPal or Bank Transfer.

PORTRAIT PROGRESS
Throughout the process, I will send a few “work in progress” photos of your portrait so you can see the progress throughout its stages of completion. If you want or permit me I might publish some of it on my social media (Unless you don’t want to make it public or it’s a surprise) Please feel free to ask questions throughout the work in progress stage.

PORTRAIT CONCLUSION
Now that the portrait is completed, I will send you a photograph of the portrait for your approval. Only minor adjustments can be made during the final stage. As soon as you are satisfied with the completed portrait, I will send you an invoice for the final payment. Only after I receive payment, your portrait will then be securely wrapped, packaged, and shipped to you.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR CUSTOM PIECE OF ART!
My goal is to deliver a handmade a unique piece of portraiture for your ultimate enjoyment.
