The process of detailed realistic pencil portrait drawings
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 colour 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.
*these are an approximate time frame to be used as a guide in regular situations, many things such as multiple changes of artwork and current workload during busy times may impact those mentioned here.
