  • Paper: White, Tan toned, or Gray toned.
  • Media: Graphite (with White Highlights on the toned paper)
  • Size: 8×10


  • One subject: $70.00
  • Additional Subjects: Add $20.00 each.
  • Detailed background: Negotiable, would cost extra.
  • I require a 50% non-refundable deposit before I start drawing. If you don’t like the finished product, you don’t have to pay the rest, but I keep the deposit for the time spent working on it.

Turn Around Time: 

  • One month.* 

*More complicated drawings may take more time. Simpler ones may be finished sooner. Based on my experience, a month should be enough time to finish a portrait.

Disclaimer: I am not a robot, the finished product will not look like a photo, but I will take extreme care to create a lovely piece of art for you and yours to cherish. I reserve the right to use the portrait drawing as a sample of my work on my website, and as advertising for my business. I will not sell a print of your custom portrait to anyone else. I can not offer matting or framing at this time.
