Pen and ink portrait
A6 unframed pen and ink drawing on 135g Euroart low-gloss paper, with space for framing (full size of paper is A5).
An original portrait, drawn from your photos.
How long will it take?
About a week.
Send me up to 3 photos of the subject; I draw, and then send you a low-res scan of the drawing. You let me know what you think, and if you're happy, I post you the drawing.
If you're not happy with the first draft, I'll make changes, and send another scan. If at this point I haven't achieved a likeness you're happy with, we cancel the sale and I refund you.
Some tips for photos:
The camera should be about eye-level with the subject and more than a metre away, to minimise distortion. If you're taking a photo of yourself, use a tripod to get enough distance. Arm-length selfies tend to flatten the top of the head, or enlarge the chin or forehead. Looking slightly up at the camera, rather than down at it, tends to create a less distorted perspective.
If the photos show different hairstyles, let me know which one you'd prefer to be used.
