Custom Art From Your Photo
If you like the style of my art, perhaps you are interested in custom art from your photo? My work is done by hand using a digital tablet in Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop. The product previews above show some of my previous work including the reference photo and the digital artwork it inspired. As you can see, the photos are used for reference only. The end result can literally be night and day. When I do this for you, you can leave it up to my inspiration or you can make suggestions of what you would like to see. Maybe your photo reference is a childhood home that in your photo doesn't look as you remember it? Different colors, different architectural details? Tell me what you hope to see in your commissioned artwork and I'll use your direction to guide my work.
Custom art is not only a joy to own, it makes a great and personal gift. And as you can tell from my samples, I can work from a variety of subjects. My focus is generally on architecture from houses to storefronts. Or maybe you have or had a car that you'd love me to illustrate for you? Looking for a gift for a new home owner? Or want to preserve the memory of a fondly-remembered family home? What special subject would you like to honor?
Custom Art - The Process
- Before or after your order, send me your reference photo. The higher quality your photo, the better. I do want to set expectations. If the only photo you have for me to work from is blurry or lacking in detail, it will impact what I can do for you. With architecture I may be able to make an educated guess, but it really is going to vary based on the subject you're providing me. If you would like me to look at your reference photo before ordering, I can provide feedback. Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org whether you've already placed your order or simply want me to take a look.
- Allow approximately two weeks for me to complete your custom art. At that point, I will provide you a preview for your feedback. At this time you can request revisions or if you are happy with what I have done for you, I'll provide your finished custom art. If you ordered a print, it will take approximately 10 to 14 additional days to arrive. It will be sent directly from the printer to the address you provided when you placed your order. A digital file will be provided to you. This file is for your unlimited personal use. If you decide you would like to use it for commercial purposes, then I will be happy to discuss that with you. The time to get your finished work to you is very much a rough outline. If you are ordering a gift with a tight deadline, please drop me a note. I can let you know whether or not I can better these dates based on what I am currently working on.
When selecting physical prints, they are provided un-framed on archival matte paper in the size of your choice. Like all of the prints in my shop, they are printed using long-lasting archival inks on acid free paper. These custom prints are made to order and meant to last a lifetime. If you are looking for a custom size not shown here, send me a message with details before ordering. Prices shown for physical prints include shipping to the lower 48 US states. If you are outside of this area and want a physical print, again, please contact me before ordering.
