All the artist needs for this full body, plain background, black and white caricature is a good photo*. The caricature is drawn in pencil and oil paints using a dry brush technique on a premium uncoated, bright white 135gsm paper. To personalise the caricature, you can include up to 3 props** that represent his quirks, special interests, hobbies or even his favourite footy team.
Size of caricature: A3 29.7cm x 42cm
Recent close ups with big grins are usually the best photos. That should include a current or typical hairstyle. No hats or sunglasses please, If the artist can’t see it, he can't draw it. And please make sure the whole face and head is visible; selfies with crop out bits and pieces are not very helpful as the artist needs to work out the shape of things. It’s also really (really) important that photos are well lit, sharp and clear.O ften even just one photo will do if it's the right one. If you’re not sure, send as many as you want.
**Props and Large Objects
A prop is a small object that is included in the drawing to depict the theme or activity that you have chosen. In the case of a birthday theme, the ‘prop’ could be a wine glass or birthday cake with candles. Props do not include full larger size objects such as vehicles/cars/trucks/motorbikes etc. These can be added to the caricature at additional costs.
Prices are calculated by the amount of time needed to complete the drawing, so if the object for example, a vehicle, is small and in the background it will be counted as a prop and hence included in the price. If the vehicle is to be larger and proportional to the person/people in the caricature, there is an additional $50 charge. The same principle applies to animals or pets. If the animal is small (small dog/cat etc.) or it is to be drawn in the background or only drawn partially (head only) it is counted as a prop and included in the price. If it is a larger dog or horse etc. there is an additional $50 charge for the caricature.
Black and white caricatures usually take 7-10 days to complete. Please email if urgent and we will try to assist.
