Portraits Include:

Each portrait includes illustrating one person. If you would like to add more people, please let me know and I will be in touch with rates. I do have group rate options for families, businesses and other groups.

You are welcome to include an object like a car, motorcycle, or pet.

Please note the style in the above examples. Your portrait will be created in that style, with bold lines and minimal background. Cool right? Please note that I won’t “draw you like a New Yorker cartoon,” “Calvin & Hobbes” or in another artist’s style. Thanks for understanding.

The background will be in a minimalist style with few details. You can request it be a forest motif, or ocean setting, or a bar, or the Mos Eisley cantina. Totally cool. It will be very minimal with hints of the environment.

The portraits are made at 4″ x 5″ at 300 dpi. That’s plenty big enough for any online media. If you would like a file scaled up larger for print, I will cheerfully supply it upon request at any time in the future.

Money Back Guarantee

When it’s done, I’ll send it to you as a low-res image. You’ll have an opportunity to review and make some tweaks to your portrait. If you still aren’t happy with it at that point, I’ll refund your money, no questions asked.

If you approve, yay! I’ll send you the high-res file and we’re done.
