Custom Small Head & Shoulders Drawing
Have Jacob hand draw a CUSTOM, one-of-a-kind original sketch of yourself or a loved one or of a pet.
Your drawing will be the size of 5 inches x 7 inches drawn from start to finish freehanded (not using any tools / tracing etc.) while observing your cherished photo, using graphite pencils and erasers, traditionally, on archival paper (approx. 8.5 inches x 11 inches) with ample white border to crop to your desired frame.
+ $25 if you'd like to have a drawing up to 8 inches x 10 inches (with a little white border to crop to your desired frame on an approx. 8.5 inches x 11 inches archival paper).
NOTE: this sketch will have a blank background or if you want a background with a gradient Jacob will gladly do so for an additional + $25.
Its as simple as pay Jacob in full and email your photos to him to draw from. It can be from 1 photo that is perfect as is or a combination of a few photos, adding elements to merge into one idealized portrait.
Completing the drawing typically takes just 1 hour but please allow up to 1-7 days to complete plus shipping times to you. Jacob will share a photo of the finished drawing over email to ensure you approve the drawing before shipment.
Once you pay in full, please email Jacob the photo (or photos) that you want for him to draw from. Dependent upon his schedule and other commissions he will within a few days have a composition all drawn out. Once he officially starts drawing the portrait he can usually have it accomplished within 1-7 business days PLUS shipping times. Jacob is based in the Sarasota, FL area, so however long it takes to get to you! He will ship via a ground service... the most economical available to save as much money as possible (he hopes you understand since he will be paying for the shipping costs). Before Jacob has your painting packed & shipped, he will take a photo of the drawing and message you to ensure you are satisfied with the drawing.
- Jacob paints in an impressionistic, realistic style... meaning, it looks realistic, but when you get up close it will show the brush strokes, as well as areas will be "simplified" and exhibit basic shapes.
- The face (eyes in the case of an animal) will be the most "resolved" and polished looking, but will still exhibit unique sketch marks (this sketch is not meant to be a "photo-realistic" rendering, but a realistic rendering that has the artist's personal style to it.
- The photos will always vary from in person viewing, especially the lighting, and the drawing always looks better in person! So, please keep this in mind.
FREE SHIPPING (in continental US)
Please be sure to provide Jacob with an accurate shipping address at checkout.
Jacob is only offering this service to clients in the continental US. It is not cost effective for him at this time to ship paintings further. Thank you for your understanding.
NON-REFUNDABLE POLICY (If already drawn)
Please understand if you decide for any reason after you hire Jacob to draw your personalized masterpiece, and he has done so, he will not be able to refund any payments out of respect of his time, talent and resources. I hope you can understand.
If you decide before he starts drawing that you need to cancel, then he will gladly refund you in full.
