Custom pencil drawings

I create highly realistic pencil drawings from your emailed photos. I offer three standard sizes of custom pencil portraits of men, women, children and pets. These portraits are finely detailed pencil renderings created in a realistic style.

These drawings are graphite pencil or colored pencil drawings on top quality felt drawing paper. All pencil drawings are signed by the artist, sprayed with a fixative to prevent smudging, and are ready to matte and frame when delivered. Picture framing can be included for an additional charge.

As you can see, I also enjoy drawing pop culture images and can draw pencil portraits working from your favorite celebrity photos. This portrait of American Idol's Jason Castro is an example of my work. The original is 11" x 17". Click the image to see a close-up view of the pencil stroke details.
