CREATIVE PROCESS OF CUSTOM ART

 

 

  • { Step ONE }

    After getting in touch, we'll discuss the portrait subjects, medium, size, specific details, and mood for the artwork.

    Reference photos are decided to be used from an included photo shoot or simply from existing photographs.

    Once the portrait idea is set in place, the particulars are written in a simple art service agreement before commencing the commission.

  • { Step TWO }

    If the inclusive photo shoot was chosen, we'll have a 2 hour photo session, and the best photographs will be selected for the portrait.  A CD of photos will be given on completion of the portrait.

    Miniature art mock-ups will be made to illustrate the best feeling for artwork before starting the original portrait.

  • { Step THREE }

    Throughout the art process, we'll review the portrait's progress and likeness, either in person or over email.

    Nearing completion, a last portrait review will be made and the small and needed changes will be addressed to ensure a detailed depiction for entire satisfaction.

  • { Step FOUR }

    Upon approval, completion, and final payments made, the portrait is picked up or mail delivery is optional for an additional fee.  All portraits are guaranteed.
