      I'm unsure which photo templates to choose. What do you recommend?

      To achieve the best possible result, we recommend sending us your most recent and clearest photo templates. The ideal ones are:

      • Close-up
      • Natural daylight without flash
      • Sharp images (No blurring or blurring)
      • Complete image of the person/face (ears and hair can be seen completely and clearly)

      If you have any questions, you can simply contact us via Whatsapp. We provide you with non-binding advice around the clock, and we usually respond within 10 minutes.

      Will I receive a preliminary draft of my drawing?

      After ordering online, we discuss the photo templates together and make the decisions. Before the actual drawing process, we take enough time to plan the proportions, size, height, composition and contrast. You will receive an automatic preliminary draft in the following cases:

      • If the portrait costs more than £200
      • If the portrait is to depict more than 3 people
      • For particularly complex orders where we cannot make a clear decision and would like to take your opinion into account
      • If you stated in the comments section when ordering that you would like a preliminary draft.

      Please note:

      • A preliminary draft is a quick collage and template to get a feel for the drawing. The production time increases by one day due to the additional effort.
      • A preview: Under certain conditions, such as higher-priced portraits, we will also send a preview. You will hear from us when your drawing is basically finished and the preview is final. Here you have the opportunity to provide feedback and adjust details.

      I urgently need a family portrait drawing, what can I do?

      If time is short, we have the following suggestion for you:
      Order an art print with express production time (5 days).

      This contains:

      • We draw your portrait on high-quality art paper.
      • Once completed, it will be scanned and emailed to you in high resolution.
      • You can print it out directly and use it as a gift in time.
      • You will receive the premium art print a few days later and can simply exchange it for the printed drawing.
