To create my portraits, I hand-draw them in freestyle using pen and soft pencil on card paper. No rulers or projection methods are used. I work from photos in my studio. I prefer to visit the house and take the photos myself if possible, if its too far or in another country then I work from photos that people send me.
Portrait sizes are A1, A2 and A3.
Once the portraits are complete, I scan them in high definition, then clean them up in photoshop, and save them as a high resolution images. These images can then be used to print on stationery and on greeting cards.
