When drawing portraits I love to bring my work to life by capturing subtle facial expressions or features that are often unique to the individual I'm drawing.  For me, this is usually captured in the eyes.  It can say so much about how a person is feeling and even who they are. 


Drawing animals presents different challanges for me as an artist but jus like humans, animals can often have unique features that show their uniqueness.


How longs does a commission take ? 

What sizes   of  commissions do you offer?

How can I order a pencil commission?

How long a commission takes depends on the size of the image and how many subjects are in the drawing. Usually it takes between 2 - 4 weeks. I will always confirm beforehand with you and give you an exact date. 

Usual pencil commissions are A4, A3 and A2 , however I can draw any size, it really just depends on what you want. If you are not sure of what size to choose, just send me an Email and I am happy to advise.  You choose, I create!

Ordering a commission is really easy. The most important thing is that you choose a good quality image and decide what size you would like. You can find the prices on the prices page. Once you have found an image, just send me an email and I will check the image quality and send you a confirmation with the price and delivery date. 

Good Quality

The quality of the image is the most important thing in order to have a high quality and realistic pencil drawing.  The higher the quality of the reference photo, the more detailed the finished drawing will be.

This image is an example not to be used.  The subject is too far away from the camera and therefore the detail in the image is lost.  The best images are the ones that I can zoom in on the subject and the image doesn't become blurry. 

Bad Quality 

What image to choose ? 


"I love the drawing....what I wanted "
