AT LEAST 3 OPTIONS
Even if you have a specific photo in mind, I want you to get the best painting possible. Please be ready to collaborate with me on which photo is best for this specific medium. The more options the better!
SHARP & IN FOCUS- DIGITAL
I paint tiny but I need a lot of detail. Please only send pics taken with a digital camera or newer phone. My paintings are photorealistic. In order to assure it looks exactly like the subject, I need fully sharp detail (especially in the eyes!).
If the photo is dark or there is a huge shadow over part of the subject, it will not make a good painting. If it is too bright or overexposed, there will not be enough dimension or contrast.
FULL BODY and FULL FACE
My paintings look best as portraits with no background. Please send full faces and full body, with the subject looking at the camera. Please try not to send images where feet or ears are cut off.
MULTIPLE SUBJECTS MUST BE IN THE SAME IMAGE
Unfortunately I can not combine multiple photos into one. The scale will be different as well as the lighting and the portrait will look awkward and inaccurate.
