ART FROM PHOTOGRAPHS

Hang-On

To order art drawn from a photograph send your photos via email or CD if possible. Good photos are essential. If your images don’t give enough information, I may not be able to work from them.

WHEN TO ORDER:
For most art it’s a good idea to allow 3 to 6 weeks, especially if you’re planning for a special occasion such as a birthday or holiday.

PHOTO HINTS:
Quality: Any photograph you provide must be of good quality. The more detail in the photos the more accurate and lifelike the drawing will be. If possible, provide multiple photos taken from different angles. The larger the photos are, the better.
Precious Heirlooms: Don’t risk losing a special photograph by sending it in the mail. Have an additional print made or scan it, but be sure the scanner is set at a high resolution.
Copyrights: Don’t submit anything that is copyrighted or otherwise protected.

BACKGROUND, PROPS AND ATTIRE:
You’re not limited to what you see in the photo. If you want a different background or you’d like the subject to be wearing something else, we might be able to make something up. Give me a hint of what you wish or, if you want anything specific, send photos of that too. Be sure the photos of the background and other extras are taken from the same angle as the subject. Remember that backgrounds and other stuff will be extra.

WHEN TO PICK UP:
Deposits are generally not required. When the artwork is completed I’ll email you a sample for your approval. Upon receipt of payment, your art will be sent to you. If you choose not to accept the art you will owe nothing more.

  2. I was wondering if I could order a print of the pirate choir. How much for an 8×10 or something comparable?

    Thanks!

    (Yes, I am a choir director.)
