Tips to choose an image:
Remember your Portrait Artwork would majorly consist of face/faces so your face. So practically speaking your image should be such that that when you zoom in to view the entire face on your computer screen, the details should be clearly visible.

Q: I have a traditional paper photo. Can you make a Portrait Artwork from it?
A: Sue we can! You can mail it to us but to save you your precious money and time we would suggest you scan the paper photo at 600dpi resolution (minimum) and either upload it on our website or send it to us by email at
Q: How long do you normally take to complete the Portrait?
A: A Masterpiece cannot be created overnight! It takes a couple of days to complete the artwork. Because an artwork cannot be created in one go especially a Pencil Portrait which needs to be exactly in proportion and has to give a photorealistic appeal. Such an artwork can only be completed in intervals because one’s eyes cannot detect error elements if one constantly observes the artwork for hours together. So to get the best quality art our artists work on a couple of Portraits at a time and complete them in intervals.
Typically a Pencil Portrait takes 7-10 days to complete. So we require you to give us 15-20 days for the Portrait to be delivered at your doorstep!
