Step 1 (*Approx 1-5 working days depending on customers changes etc)

The first step is to create your vision digitally using image software with the photos supplied whilst following the brief set out by the customer. Doing this digitally is a quick way for us to color correct and position subjects in the portrait giving the customer a good idea what the artist has in mind before even putting pencil to paper.

This is where most of the alterations and changes tend to happen between the artist and customer, we will work closely with the customer making sure they're satisfied before moving onto the next step. This will be handled via emailing proofs by default however we can converse over facebook messenger if preferred, this tends to speed up the process.

Step 2 (*Approx 5-12 working days)

So once you are satisfied with the digital proof we then proceed with creating the portrait using the photos and digital proof as references to moving forward drawing the portrait. This steps turnaround tends to widely vary depending on the size, subjects, and details of the portrait.

Step 3 (*Approx 1-3 working days)

The last and final step is when we email you the final proof, at this stage we're are able to make slight changes prior sealing your portrait with fixative, this seals the graphite/carbon/charcoal from smudging once stored in its archival sleeve. As soon as you say you're satisfied with the outcome we begin to pack your artwork and ship it within 48hrs with your chosen shipping method set by you at checkout.

Step 1 (approx 1-3 working days)

If you haven’t selected to have multiple subjects on separate photos or created a complicated brief, you may skip this step altogether making the process quicker which is useful for those in a rush.

If you have ordered multiple subjects or separate background that may require composing before drawing, we will create a quick digital proof to make sure you’re happy with the layout before proceeding to step 2. This is, of course, optional, just mention which you prefer when ordering.


Step 2 (approx 2-5 working days)

If first proof is needed once approved we draw as soon as possible. Turnaround times vary in size and how many subjects requested to be drawn.

Step 3 (approx 1-3 days)
