The creation process

I start the creation process after payment has been cleared
Send me at least 3 good resolution photos. If you can send more, even better.
Specify your eye colour, clothing and hairstyle preferences, by pictures and description.

After I receive your photos and information, I will send you a detailed drawing for approval. You can make any adjustments you want at this point and I will work on it until you are completely satisfied. After the drawing approval, you will receive a colour study.

Once the drawing and colours are approved and I start the final art, changes are not allowed.

I will send you a picture of the final portrait before shipping it just to make sure everything is perfect.

This was the perfect 1st wedding anniversary gift to my husband; he loves it. Patricia was so easy to work with, and the final product was truly special, with such attention to detail. I'm so, so happy with how it turned out.

Such a wonderful, special gift. We haven’t been able to get a family portrait since having baby (on to do list), so this was such a cool way to achieve. While I’m sure we’ll have family photos later, I think we’ll always treasure this one. Very well received by my wife!
