Couple Portrait Commission
Want a cartoon-y portrait of you and your sweetheart, or perhaps of yourself and a pal or your pet?
Couples portraits are done in ink and watercolour on 140 lb paper. I offer two sizes:
5x7 - start at $100
8x10 - start at $150
Each portrait includes 2 people. Any additional people/pets are $20. If you are looking to illustrate a family of four or more, I strongly recommend the larger 8x10 size.
All I need is a photo to work from that’s shot in good lighting and shows whoever will be in the portrait from head to toe. You don’t have to be posing together in the photo necessarily, but I do need a photo where everyone is present or I need the heights of whoever is in the photo for reference.
I ask for a 50% deposit* before I get started on the illustration -- once the deposit is secured, then I send you a pencil sketch so that you can check over the illustration and let me know if there's anything you want to adjust or add to the image**. That way, you're completely satisfied with the finished product. Once I get approval from you, I finish up inking and painting the piece. Illustrations take about 3 weeks to do, depending on demand, but if you need it by a certain date just let me know and I can accommodate.
My pick-up location is at Dundas West subway station (in downtown Toronto) -- if you aren't able to pick up from that location, I can mail it to you free of charge via regular mail ($13 if it is an international order or an express shipment with a tracking number).
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org any time with any questions or commission requests, or fill out the form below:
* Please note that deposits are non-refundable. Furthermore, I am not able to offer refunds or exchanges, as I am a small business of one and can't be responsible for how mail is handled and for different postal systems.
** I do 1-2 rounds of edits, but beyond that may charge an extra fee for additional rounds of edits.
