How are caricatures drawn?
Caricatures are drawn by hand with pencil or charcoal or pastel, the paintings are water colours.
The likeness to the face depends on the photo sent.
Exaggerated features are not drawn unless specifically requested at the point of ordering.

ABOUT PHOTOS AND PICTURES:
Please ensure that your photos are of a sufficient resolution to enable an accurate drawing to be completed. Original camera images are best.
If you are sending several large images then it is usually a good idea to split them over a couple of e-mails.
Clear, good detail, nice expression, good size, in focus.
- Photos which are too small, side views, wearing glasses or hats, poor detail, looking away from the camera, poor expression etc are not suitable to work from. The better quality starting image the better the final caricature will be. Remember that the photos is all I have to work from so make it a good one!
