Welcome to my Dog Portrait of Django. Andrew, from the East Coast of the United States, emailed to ask if he could have a portrait of his friends dog drawn as a gift for her. Andrew wanted an 18 x 14 full body portrait laying down. We initially discussed this idea from the photos he emailed. However the photo wasn’t all that good quality so I asked if it was possible to take new photos.
The wonderful news that he was able to get new photos especially for the pencil drawing was superb. Andrew emailed me a range of photos a few weeks later that he had taken. There were many that were perfect for a portrait. Photos are absolutely key in creating a detailed portrait. Both Nicholas and not only like to add plenty of detail in our work, but we also like to see light and shadows too. This really helps to create a realistic portrait.
Andy emailed me when he saw the final scan and you can read just one of his emails below. We exchanged a number of emails. Andrew even sent me a photo of his back garden when it had snowed! He had a number of feet of snow! I always love conversing with my clients and finding out what its like where they live.
Wow! The portrait is absolutely beautiful! Thank you and you do incredible work!
