–How Does it Work?
You supply a photo of one person or pet, and the artist, Rachel Fia will hand draw an illustration using colored pencils on paper. The artist will then digitize the drawing and add a graphic designed background and inspirational text. You will request which type of background and text to be included.
–How do I get the photo to you?
Purchase this item and after payment is received, I will email you to ask for the photo and the background style you would like to have. You can reply and attach a photo or photos to make the drawing.
–Will it look just like the photo?
The artist will use her own style to illustrate the photo and therefore it will have a strong resemblance, but it will not be exact because is not it meant to be. Illustrations are meant to capture the personality and energy of the subject. Look at some of the examples to get an idea of the artist’s style of drawing and interpretation.
–Can I see it before it’s done?
The artist will supply progress photos for your approval. If you are not satisfied with the progress photos, you may request changes or to cancel your order at any time prior to the final approval. Keep in mind, colored pencil cannot be erased, and changes might require redrawing. Once the final design is approved by you, it will be shipped and the order will be complete and non-refundable.
