- Tell me what you want me to do... Black & White
Face, Color Face, Black & White Head & Body, Color Head & Body, or Caricature Poster. You will find the prices
listed on the next page..
- For the Head & Body and the Caricature Poster, describe
the background or scenery you'd like to see, the pose or action that the subject of the drawing should have, and any special
items or props that should be in the drawing. EXAMPLES... (A) A teenage girl rollerblading
down a street in a residential neighborhood. A small dog is racing along with her... (B) A
middle-aged man wearing waders, standing in a creek, casting his line into the water on the other side of the stream. A
large fish pops out of the water behind the man and says "You'll never catch me!" (C) An older
lady in her kitchen carrying a pie she has just taken out of the oven. A vase of flowers (daisies) is on
the table. A brown cat and two mice are eyeing up the pie from their location in the corner of the room.
- Select two or three good clear photos
of the person to be caricatured. A wallet-size photo or a 3 X 5 or 4 X 6 snapshot will work (as long as the picture
is a close-up of the person I'm to draw). Be sure the image of the face is about the size of a quarter, or larger,
and is well-lighted. Please don't choose a photo in which a dark-haired person is posed in front of a dark background.
Three-quarter views of the subjects face are best, full-face views are fine, and profiles will be acceptable although not
preferred. One thing more... be sure to tell me the color of the subject's eyes. Eye color does not always show up well
- You can send me your photos as Jpeg
attachments to email. Before sending, please adjust the dimensions of the photo to approximately 500 pixels
by 300 pixels. Don't send a large number of photos at one time in one email. I'd prefer to receive several email
letters each with two attachments, rather than one email carrying six or eight photos. Make me a happy down-loader
and I'll make you a great caricature!
- You can, of course, send me the reference photos by regular
USPS mail. Your pictures will be returned to you with the completed caricature drawing.
