Have a realistic graphite pencil drawing of your family, friends, and loved ones drawn by a freelance artist. (I am now offering to do pets as well!) An item like this will be held closer than any other photo and can be passed down as a heirloom. This is NOT just a sketch done by a caricature artist or in those digital studios at the mall that take your photo and make it look like a sketch. This is a highly detailed graphite pencil drawing made to look as realistic as possible. In most circumstances it makes your photo look better than the original. I can do friends, family members, or celebrities if you like as long as you have a photo of them I can do it as I need a reference.

This is a sale for an original graphite pencil drawing done by myself, Christina G. Smith. It will be a shoulder or chest up portrait of your choosing of one person. If it's of a pet it will not be full body but mostly their face.

What will be used:
- 8.5x11 Bristol Paper
- Graphite Pencils

How it will work:

- You send me an email or conversation through Etsy with a description of what you are wanting. It is best if there are at least 3 images for me to choose from. To be honest not all images make for good drawings so if you have a few to choose from I'll pick the one that feels better. I'll let you know if it would work. This can be done before or after payment is made.

- Once I think I have enough information I'll start sketching and shading the image.

- You will receive an email with a 300dpi and 72dpi (internet friendly) sized image. And then the original will be shipped to you.

Rules about how you can use the image:

- You are not buying the rights to this image. By that I mean you cannot use the image produced on any commercial projects like book covers, prints, etc.

- This image can only be used for private personal use and not for profit.

P.S. Some of the images provided are poor quality scans because of circumstance or photos because images were too large to scan. Your image will be of much higher quality. To view my full portfolio check:

I'm an American artist from the Mid-west and has lived in Europe. I studied under published author and well known artist, Lee Hammond. I have been taking commissions for artwork since I was 14 years old. I have lots of experience turning your family, characters into works of art. I do not take months and months to work on one image. I get images done fast and done well because of all the experience I've had.
