Tips From Our Team of Artists
|There is no shame in tracing. Print out a photo, lay a piece of paper on top and trace with a soft pencil. Replicating a photo in traditional media adds a gritty and artist flare. Drawing softly against a window can help with visibility of the photo underneath.|
Remember to include defining features! Do they wear glasses? Do they have a big winning smile? How about luscious curly hair? Including some unique features can help make your portrait recognizable and fun.
Finally, a good portrait isn’t about skill! It’s about authenticity. Not a pro? You don’t need to be! The point is to express gratitude towards the recipient. Remember: any “mistakes” can be chalked up as a personal artistic choice! 😉
Last step: make it an official masterpiece by printing it on a small metal or custom mug. We can help scan in and enhance your work so it is gift ready.
