DIGITAL PAINTING PROCESS

Working from a reference photo, my job as an artist is to create an image that captures the essence, the character and likeness to the subject all the while adding a bit of exaggeration in terms of colour and form.

 

Once the commission has been conformed, I will send you a mock up sketch to show the composition. All through the process you will be emailed progress images of the painting for you to give your feedback. This is very important as it allows for the painting to be in sync with your idea. 

The price includes endless corrections until you're completely satisfied. This is to ensure that you're happy with the end result. There is however extra cost involved if the brief changes midway.
