FULL DETAIL CARICATURES

Full detail caricatures including hobby and interest detail. They can be colour or black and white and are hand drawn from photos that you supply, by me. All I need to work from is a clear, close up (preferably smiley!) photo of the person, together with details of any interests you may like included within the caricature. A brief description of clothing and eye colour would also be helpful. Once I’ve drawn the caricature I will then email you the image for approval before it’s posted out to you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)




Q. What do I need to supply for a caricature to be started?

A. Good clear photos of the individual, send via email or in the post. State the eye colour of the person as this is generally hard to tell from photographs. Please list all hobbies and interests in the order of importance. A description or photo of any clothing they might wear. eg. football kit. Photos or make/model of any vehicles or posessions required on the portrait.

Q. How do you draw your pictures?

A. I draw all pictures on a computer using a graphics tablet. This way changes can easily be made to the final image.

Q. When do I pay?

A. Payment is required before I begin the caricature.

Q. What if I do not like the image or if it is not a good likeness?

A. The picture will be modified until you are 100% happy.

Q. How do you print your image?

A. I use archival inks on archival water colour paper. The image is far superior to photographic paper in terms of life expectancy and look.

Q. Can I have a jpeg image of the caricature sent to me?

A. Yes, you will get one automatically.

Q. Do I get to see the caricature before it is printed?

A. Yes, I will email you a copy for approval before it is printed. It will only be printed when you are 100% happy

Q. I have seen other caricatures that are clearly made from photographs and not hand drawn do you ever do this?

A. Absolutely not, the original images are not used directly or traced in any way. This would not be a caricature but a modified photograph.

Q. How long does a caricature take to complete?

A. A caricature is generally ready within 1 to 3 weeks although can be ready sooner if there is a very short time frame.
