WEDDING PENCIL PORTRAIT DRAWINGS – THE PERFECT SUBJECT
When commissioning a wedding pencil drawing the main thing you want is for it to capture that special moment and evoke warm feelings and happy thoughts of your special day. With all my artwork commissions I work to a high level of photo realism, capturing every detail concisely to create a piece of artwork my customer will be overjoyed with.
In capturing this high level of detail, I need high quality photographic reference. As the wedding pencil drawing will be of 2 or more people a good selection of 3-4 photos of each person is ideal. This is so I have multiple angles and shots of them in different lighting so I can find the perfect balance to capture each person perfectly. But don’t worry, if you only have the photo of the wedding drawing you would like me to undertake that will be ok, as long as it is a good quality photograph.
You may not have the perfect photo, it may be, that you have a selection of photos you would like me to combine into one drawing, thats not a problem, just let me know. And if the photos are not already digital, I can convert them, manipulating them on the computer to create a rough composition of what you have in mind.
You may be unsure if your photo reference is good enough for me to use? That’s a very common question, feel free to email them over to me, I will let you know if they are good enough quality. There is a simple rule of thumb, if the photos a very crisp and show the subject(s) in a very clear and concise way then they will more than likely be good enough to use for drawing reference. I work of an ipad and zoom in 300% to the subject in order to capture the smallest of details.
The majority of my wedding pencil drawings I have completed over the years have been in black and white. A lot of my customers prefer black and white for their wedding pencil drawing as they feel it adds to the emotion and mood of the subject. Please click here to order your drawing today
