Child Pencil Portrait Drawing Specialist

Child pencil portrait drawings have become a very popular subject for commission of recent years. Capturing the cheeky smile and pure looks of your child can be a beautiful piece of artwork that you will treasured for ever.

When drawing a portrait of a child I use the lightest of touches to capture their soft delicate complexions. Children portraits are very clean and have a very fresh look with eyes that sparkle. Using the lightest of touches, keeps the overall look of the portrait alive and vibrant. Using harsh cross hatching techniques and shading flattens the look and overall appearance. With children portraits its all about conveying the purity and natural vibrancy through delicate strokes and detail.

    COMMISSIONING A PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWING OF A CHILD

     

    PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS OF CHILDREN

    My style for all child pencil portraits I undertake is photo-realistic, capturing every detail to give it a lifelike appearance. With child portraiture, the main key is to capture their personality and cheeky side, giving the portrait an individual and unique look. Prior to undertaking a child portrait drawing, as well as obtaining the best visual reference that captures their look perfectly, I also like to get a bit of a description of their character, to help me capture the essence of their personality.

    Having good photographic reference is a vital part of achieving a great child pencil portrait. I can discuss this with you if you are unsure on how to achieve this, or please feel free to email me the reference you have and I will let you know if the quality is good enough to use for reference. I also have a photo guide which may help you to achieve the best reference for your child portrait. If possible I like to work from 2-3 different photographs, this helps me get a true representation of their skin tones, hair colour and more importantly their personality in a colour portrait. If you would like a child portrait drawing but have a few questions, no problem, drop me a line and I will talk through things with you.

    TYPES OF PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS OF CHILDREN?

    With child portraits the main style I’m always ask to commission is one of a child that is laughing or giggling. This type of child portrait evokes a warm feeling and makes most people smile. Showing a childs’ cheeky side makes the perfect piece of artwork as it captures the  natural adventuring spirit of children. As with all parents they have pictures of their child when they were younger, playing in mud or getting up to some mischief, this type of child portrait is timeless and will always remind the viewer of happy memories, captured in a wonderful black and white or colour portrait.  Please see prices/order page for full list of sizes.

    CAN I HAVE MORE THAN ONE SUBJECT IN MY CHILD PENCIL PORTRAIT?

    Yes of course, a child portrait doesn’t have to be the stereotypical front on portrait of your child. A lot of my customers like to show 2-3 different pictures of their child, maybe one central portrait in full colour, with 2 or three smaller drawings around it, showing them maybe giggling or holding their favourite toy. If you are looking to commission a portrait of your child feel free to get in touch we can discuss what will be the best composition to create a child portrait you will love.

    HOW DO I COMMISSION A PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWING OF MY CHILD?

    This couldn’t be easier, if you go onto my order/prices page select the style and size you would like, either full colour or black and white and pay the 25% deposit. From this point I will be in touch to discuss the photographs to be used and any other details you would like to talk about. If the type of portrait you want isn’t shown on the order page, don’t worry, just give me a call, I can accommodate whatever type of portrait you would like, its just impossible to have every variation of portrait listed on the order page.

    WHY COMMISSION A CHILD PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWING WITH ME?

Creating child portraits are a passion of mine capturing every minute detail to a photorealistic level.  I very often have tears of joy when presenting  my black and white and colour portraits to my customers, which is when I know i’ve done the very best I can, which is what I aim to achieve with all my work.
