People portraits in a realistic style
People portrait drawings capturing the spirit and appearance of the subjects in a realistic style.
People portraits inspired by your photos
People portraits can capture a single moment in time, and preserve a person’s unique personality forever. My pencil drawings of people are a reminder of just how powerful and emotive a pencil can be as a tool for creating fine art.
Each of my people portraits is an original work of art, custom designed specifically for you and your family to enjoy. I look deep into your photos, and quickly identify the real personality within the face, particularly in the eyes. Even before starting, I can often tell if a photograph of a face will become a great pencil portrait. But whatever images you provide, I can work with you to identify the composition, learn about the unique features and character you see in the person, and then bring them to life with the pencil.
People portraits at any size from A5 to A1
I have recognised over the last five years, a portrait is usually of someone special in your life. Whether it is a member of the family, a good friend, a loved-one or even someone who is no longer alive, a pencil portrait can be a lasting reminder, and cherished forever.
My people portraits can be of individuals, or multiple people together based on your supplied photos. You will need to consider the size of the people portrait before I start the work, but you can choose from as small as A5, up to very large A1 portraits.
If you’ve got someone special in your life that you want me to re-create through the medium of pencil, start by finding the best photos, and have an idea of the size you want the portrait. The commission process is simple, and more information as well as prices are available here.
