- Turnaround time: One week.
- Subject options & guidelines: Everyone’s version of ‘gore’ is different, but I will not draw anything that celebrates extreme violence. I do not do nude pictures unless they are done as a respectful study of the human body with no sexual undertones. I will not do art that seems hateful or cruel to animals or to any group of people ( along the lines of race, gender etc.) Art must not be extremely detailed (i.e.: a crowd of realistic people; every leaf visible on each tree in a forest). Ideally, I’d like to draw under 5 figures in each artwork but this is related to the level of detail mentioned above. I would prefer to do digital art but I am open to discuss the possibility of posting traditional artworks. Basic shading and highlights only.
Your final work will arrive as a digital image, ready for you to set as social media cover images, profile avatars, desktop backgrounds, mobile device lock screens, and more. We encourage you to print your digital commission through the service of your choice, though we’re happy to send physical prints directly to you as well (see our print options page for more information). Your image, which will arrive as a JPEG, at least 3000 by 3000 pixels and a minimum of 250 pixels per inch, will be of high enough quality to print in virtually any format.
I was trained as a graphic designer at the Ruth Prowse School of Art in Cape Town. The college specialises in fine art so I soon discovered digital painting and developed my skills in this area. Since childhood, I have been doing portraits of people and pets as well as fantasy art straight out of my head. I enjoy turning ordinary photos into something more exciting and surreal. Most of my paintings are done digitally using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Corel Painter. I will adapt my style to suit the client so my work ranges from choppy, impressionistic images to smooth, vector-based graphics. I have been working as a freelance illustrator for the past four years so this isn’t just a hobby, it is my primary source of income and I will pay careful attention to every project that comes my way.
