Pencil portraits bring your photo to life using subtle strokes of pencil thus adding dimension to every detail of the portrait. we offer standard pencil portraits and premium pencil portraits to suit your style and budget. Our professional artists study the source photograph skillfully and then after hours of analysis and detailing they start working on your portrait laying special emphasis on the eyes. With each pencil layer the pencil portrait artist builds darker values. This process continues methodically until the eyes, cheeks, nose, lips, ears and neck all have the appropriate value and texture. Thus creating the base of contours and textures. As the drawing progresses, the portrait artist keeps adding more detail and shading. All shading was done lightly at first, and then darkened progressively the pencil strokes are kept fine and small. This way, the artist is able to retain a "realistic" and "detailed" look to the pencil portrait.
You will be thrilled when you receive the portrait as we promise you that it will certainly be more than what you were expecting.

Even in modern times with the most sophisticated cameras and digital technology available portraits still remain a choice of people with a taste and class. Portraits are a very special way to preserve those special moments of your life and our portrait artists help you create the magic. Profile view, full face view, and three-quarter view, are three common designations for portraits, each referring to a particular orientation of the head of the individual depicted.

Renaissance was a very important point in the history of portrait artists, portrait painting in general reached a new level of balance and harmony and the greatest artists were geniuses Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Great realism of portrait artist was now due to finer brush strokes and effects possible with oil colors .
The main essence of work of a portrait artist is to capture the very nature of the subject in the source photograph so that the emotions are reflected on the face and specially the eyes in the portrait. So that every time you see the portrait the magic of that precious moment gets recreated, and all you have on your face is a smile. That is why the main intent of the portrait artist is to display the likeness, innocence, personality, and even the mood of the person in the commissioned portrait. As Aristotle said "The aim of Art is to present not the outward appearance of things, but their inner significance; for this, not the external manner and detail, constitutes true reality."
A portrait artist may use various mediums like oil paints, pencil, charcoal; pastel colors or water colors depending upon the effect desired by the subject.Genrally a portrait artist builds up many thin layers of color to achieve a lifelike impression. This is the most effective way to create the translucent and subtle transitions by the portrait artist. This method adopted by the portrait artist is very time consuming but when you see the results you realize that the painting is well worth the wait.
It is always the instincts the portrait artist has that direct him to paint in the right direction thereby creating a masterpiece from a simple source photograph with proper understanding of effective composition or color structure.
