Illustrations using traditional media typically take longer to complete than digital mixed media work as the process can require time for each layer of colour to dry and cure before the drawing and painting can be added to.
Working time can vary from 4 weeks up to 4 months for elaborately detailed illustrations.

Prices start at $580 for a pencil portrait with no background, using a supplied reference photo from the client.
More elaborate drawings are priced according to an estimate of the number of hours I expect to be working on the illustration. Most illustrations take at least 40 hours of work.
Your reference photos will need to be at least 1000px wide or at least 20cm wide when printed on paper. Ideally, it should be as large as possible with sharp detail to make your portrait a realistic likeness.
