We create hand drawn portraits from your pictures. Charcoal drawings can capture the character of a photo more so sometimes than color. For example an old picture from way back when in black & white would be more authentic painted in the same vain but at the same time the reverse can also be true and work where you could have an old black & white photo painted in the colors of your choice. You would see a mock up proof edited before any decision is made and the photo passed to one of our charcoal artists to paint it. It is all about personal preference of course but also the recommendation of one of our professional artists after close scrutiny what would look the best black and white or color as every photo is different. When creating a portrait from photograph Black & white captures the important parts in an image sometimes more so than color so it is vitally important that we get it right by making the right choice for the integrity of the painting.
After you have submitted your charcoal drawing order, our team of artists will check the quality of your photo and you receive a proof before anything is shipped out. Before the picture is passed to our charcoal artists we do general photo enhancement and a slight cropping to suit the ordered charcoal painting size. But you can of course also request more specific changes - like combining several photos into one charcoal drawing or even removing people, adding a different background and more. This kind of photo editing is included in our service absolutely free!
