A Companion Portrait is an investment that will last a lifetime. As such, it’s just as important to us, as it is to you, that it is completed to your liking. The first decisions in the process are: do you want a full body or a head study portrait? How many companions do you want included in any one portrait? What size portrait do you want? These are all strictly a personal preference on your part, and are decisions that you’ll have to make on your own.

The next step is to decide what medium you want the portrait to be drawn with. We believe the colored-pencil stylus to be not only the most economical, but the most detailed as well. However, for those who demand the traditional graphite or colored-pencil, we can fulfill your desires as well. For examples, in the lower right hand corner of the Gallery of Portraits page, there is a small caption written in red font that tells what each of the portraits were drawn with.

Once you have decided upon a portrait, please fill out the form below. Attach photos (full sized, do not reduce the file sizes) using the proper fields on the form. Please read the information on our Providing Photos for Your Portrait Page. Once we assess the photos and determine that a high-quality portrait can be drawn using them, we will contact you, and send you an invoice through Paypal. This allows secure payment with a credit card even if you don’t have a Paypal account. Payment can also be made with a check or money order. To ensure that all portrait commissions are bona fide, we require full payment up front before beginning work on the portrait. You will receive emails of the work in progress, (similar to the photos on the Drawing Process Page).

Before we ship your portrait, you will receive an emailed, watermarked final proof copy for your approval. If you approve it, we will ship the final, non-watermarked portrait, completing the transaction. However, If at that time, you’re not satisfied with the portrait and do not approve the proof copy, we’ll keep the portrait and you’ll receive a full refund. That is our 100% money back, satisfaction guarantee.

Once started, most portraits will take about a week to complete. The number of portraits scheduled that are ahead of yours, is the determining factor for amount of time it will take from order placement to receiving your portrait.
