If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me any time. I check convos often, but you may also contact me at artladymanor [!at] comast.net.

I also offer other photo products as well. (special occasion cards, photo collages, photo-manipulation, and art prints)

Q: Your drawings are digital. How are they made?
A: I render your photographs into a rough sketch in photoshop using an automated process I developed. Next, I clean up the image and add detailing using a wacom tablet/pen. I also remove undesired background objects as part of the digital process. Finally, I print the finished drawing on heavyweight acid-free textured paper using an inkjet printer with archival inks.

Q: Can you combine photos?
A: Yes, but an additional charge will apply. I will need to see your images in order to give you a quote.

Q: May I order more prints than are offered in your shop?
A: Yes. You will need to convo me or contact me at artladymanor [!at] comcast.net to request a custom package to be listed for you. Or you may place an alchemy request for a quote.

Q: May I send you a professional photo?
A: Yes, if you have permission from the photographer or you own all the rights to the photograph(s).

Q: How do I send you a photograph?
A: You may either email a high quality jpg to artladymanor [!at] comcast.net, or you may mail a traditional photographic print (up to 8x10 in size). Photos must be clear and retain enough detail to ensure that you receive a high quality drawing. Rule of thumb: If you cannot see any detail in the subject's eyes, your photograph probably won't be suitable for a sketch.

Please note, I do not work from negatives, slides, or computer printouts.

Please choose your photograph with great care. The quality of the finished artwork is directly dependant on the quality and size of the photograph you send. For portraits of people or animals, the subjects should be reasonably close up, to ensure facial details, etc. will not be lost. If you are not sure a photo will work, please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have before ordering.

IMPORTANT: If you submit a professional portrait, you must have permission from the photographer or studio giving me permission to use the print.

2. Select the size and/or package you wish to order. If you don't see the package you need, please let me know and I will list one for you.

3. After submitting your order, please email me at artladymanor [!at] comast.net to send your photo or get details on how to mail a photo thru snail mail.
