If you would like a picture created of a specific person, animal or pet, or a digital drawing, I would be pleased to undertake your commission artwork.
Typically my work Pencil originals are produced on Strathmore Board 35 x 43cm (14 x 17"), with an image size of around 20 x 29cm (8 x 12") positioned centrally. This affords a nice amount of white space around the subject. At this size a human portrait is a able to be reproduced to a size whereby a good level the detail, expression and likeness can be achieved as you can see on past work over in the gallery section. For portraits with two persons, a larger image area size would be required - perhaps around 30 x 40cm.
Your picture will be supplied framed with a mount if required. If you have a specific choice of mount or frame colour, please let me know at the time of ordering.
When working from your photos, the clearer the better is required - the more detail in your images, the more detailed likeness I can achieve. I cannot typically work from poor quality phone images - sorry.
Can you draw anything?
Yes, I specialise and enjoy drawing people and animals, but am happy to consider other types of subjects.
Cat Drawings, Big Cat Drawings, Pets, Dogs, Wild Animals, Famous People, Pop Stars, Family Members, Children, Mammals, Bird Drawings.
Why does it cost so much?
It takes between 12-20 hours with pencil on paper to produce your artwork. I work very hard to create a really accurate likeness, detail and textures.
Have a chat with a plumber, electrician or mechanic and ask them how much they would charge for that amount of their time. Digital Drawings like the ones in my gallery take much more time, 50-60 hours.
How long does it take?
Depending upon workload, I can normally complete your pencil artwork in around 10-14 days. Digital drawings are wholly dependent on the complexity of the work, so can take longer to produce.
If you have a deadline, please ensure you discuss this at the time of ordering.
Do the pictures come framed?
Yes, I always frame original pencil work, so they are presented in their best possible way to you - ready to hang. They come mounted with white or black card mount. If you require different coloured frame and/or mount, please let me know at the time or ordering your artwork.
How do we get started?
Get in touch! Send me your ideas and pictures and we can either work electronically by email or we can sit and have a chat over a coffee and discuss your picture ideas.
If you are looking for Digital Drawings; for print and online use, please contact me with details of your design idea so that I can provide a cost.
As a guide, the digital drawings shown on my website have taken between 30 to 60 hours to produce.
