Today the process of owning your own personal portrait painting is made very simple thanks to the internet. You can commission your own portrait paintings from sentimental photos and be in charge of the process and the outcome all the way from the start to the finish.
Our artists create charcoal drawings from your favourite photographs
Charcoal drawings can capture the character of a photo – with texture and shading which captures and highlights the important parts in an image. We have artists that have studied the medium charcoal at university to become a charcoal portrait artist and specialise in that medium alone. We can have your photo drawn in charcoal
to gallery quality, see our gallery for examples
.Your photo will be passed to the best suitable artist depending on the type of photo as some artists specialise with pet drawings and others in people paintings.
Process of ordering your charcoal drawing
After you have submitted your charcoal drawing order, we will check the quality of your photo and create an edited proof for you to analyse. This might be just a 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 picture to painting
or even removing people, adding a different background and more. This kind of photo editing is included in our service absolutely free!
