Description

Custom family portrait illustrations are perfect for parent and grandparent gifts, as well as wedding anniversary gifts or a great way to show off your best you!

"Family: where life begins and love never ends."
-Ancient Proverb

A perfect way to illustrate your love for your family, whether it be your child, spouse, sibling, or parent, is by having a personalized piece of art that will be admired and cherished forever. I will transform your favorite photo into a beautiful work of art that will last a lifetime and longer, and will be a high quality likeness of the ones you love. Your original and one-of-a-kind work of art utilizes the finest acid free paper and highest quality drawing materials. It will come protected and ready to frame.

A standard, one person drawing will be on 9 x 12 inch paper, but you may upgrade to 11 x 14 inch. Any more than one person in the drawing will automatically come on 11 x 14 to 18 x 24 inch paper. All drawings will be on high quality acid free grey toned paper using graphite pencil and white conte for the highlights. Please message me before ordering to discuss more than five people in a drawing, or if you want entire bodies portrayed.

This personalized portrait makes a perfect wedding gift! It's also great for spouses, parents, grandparents, or close friends. You can purchase this listing as a gift certificate by simply telling me the name of the intended recipient in the 'Notes to Seller' section and I will happily email you a printable card to give for a gift.

I have lots info about the commissioning and shipping processes in my 'Policy' section (click this link and scroll down for helpful FAQs).

Upon purchase, please email your photos to customfineartportraits [!at] gmail.com. High resolution is best!! Feel free to send as many different photos as you like for my professional assistance in picking the best one to turn into art.

Your drawing will be placed in a cellophane sleeve and shipped flat with cardboard masonite or rolled in a tube, depending on size, to ensure careful delivery and will be ready to frame.

FAQs

Once your order is placed, and I have received your photo(s) and we have decided on which photo to turn into artwork, you can expect your drawing to take 7 - 14 days to complete (depending on size, etc.), and another 7 - 10 days to ship because I live in Hawaii so domestic mail takes a bit longer. During peak seasons, production and shipping may be delayed, but I will keep you informed on estimated finish times. If you must have your portrait quickly, I will put you as a top priority and cut down the production time for an additional fee. Please see the Purchase page for details. You can also Contact me to get a quote on Expedited or International Shipping
After you have completed your Purchase, the photo(s) to be draw from should be sent to customfineartportraits@gmail.com. MAKE SURE TO INCLUDE THE NAME YOU ORDERED WITH IN YOUR EMAIL. Feel free to send as many different photos as you like for my professional assistance in picking the best one to turn into art. High Definition images are best.
Not likely. For one, rarely is the light source coming from the same direction in different photos which completely throws the image off. Also, for the most part, photos are taken at slightly varying angles which adds to the unnatural result of a piecemeal portrait. It's a good idea to email multiple photos for me to choose the best from, but be aware that the final drawing will come from just one of them.

The exception to this being for Pet Portraits depicting more than one animal. Due to the more relaxed nature of charcoal and pastels and because pet faces are not as complicated as human faces, I am able to use more than one photo for arranging pets in a portrait. Send me lots of photos in order to pick the best ones to go together!
Absolutely! Email me your photo(s) at customfineartportraits@gmail.com before ordering for my assessment and price quote. I can include full or half body, just let me know what you're looking for. Tasteful nudes accepted also.
I reserve the right to omit or simplify certain patterns or logos when drawing clothing or tattoos, either due to the lengthy meticulousness needed in drawing them (which the listed prices do not include), or because of artistic license in realizing that the pattern will be too busy in the drawing and will steal away focus from the important areas, such as the face(s).

In family portraits, I may slightly alter the proximity of each person in order to form a stronger composition or to make everyone fit in nicely, but it won't affect how each individual person looks in the portrait.

If you would like something in the photograph altered in the portrait, I will have to decide if it's possible on a case by case basis. Email for a quote.
Yes, provided it's big enough to show detail. Just take a clear photo using natural light and email it to me at customfineartportraits@gmail.com before purchase to make sure we can make it work. After assessment, you may need to scan it in order to bring out the definition and clarity and resend the photo before I can start the drawing.
It depends. For the most part I prefer to let the portrait subjects fade out towards the outer edges of the paper; I think it gives the drawing a classic richness. However, if faces, or very close proximity of faces, are partially cut out by the edge of the photograph, it will make more sense from a compositional perspective to have the drawing reach the edge of the paper as it does in the photo. If you have a strong preference you can tell me when emailing your photo(s) or simply leave a note at checkout. If no preference is stated, I will assume that you trust my professional artistic opinion to create your portrait in the best way I see fit. Check out my listings to see examples of each kind of drawing.
Usually the drawing will follow the orientation of the photograph. However, unless you request a specific orientation upon ordering, I will use my best professional judgement on which direction the portrait should lay on the paper.
Be careful and protect your new cherished artwork! For this drawing, and any other piece of art, it is best not to touch it directly. Naturally occurring oils in fingertips will smudge, remove, and track any kind of drawing pigment. Do not touch your drawing directly. Leave it in its cellophane sleeve until you are ready to frame it behind glass. To transfer your drawing out of the sleeve and into a frame, only lightly touch the edges with clean fingers while trying not to dent or wrinkle the paper. When deciding where to hang your portrait, keep it away from direct sunlight as much as possible. A naturally lit room is fine, but hanging in a direct beam of light day after day will bleach, dry out, and damage your precious drawing.
