Information and Photo requirements for order

In order for the artist to be able to draw or paint a caricature accurately it is important that you provide fairly clear photos of your subject, preferably at a similar angle to how you would like the person to be depicted. For example, the figure at left is looking in a 5 o'clock direction. Caricatures can be drawn between angles from 3 to 9 o'clock but angles between 5 and 7 o'clock usually give the best results.

You might like to include some items or props such as sport equipment, pet, uniform, occupational accessories, favourite clothing, drink, car, motorbike, boat, etc.
Simple props such as favourite team scarf or clothing will be included free but complex additions such as vehicles or boats will incur an additional cost.
