Helena Alves’ painterly portraits are imbued with mystery and a 3D touch that makes them pop out of the canvas. These works of art make for wonderful gifts, wall art, desktop backgrounds, and more.
- Turnaround time: Two weeks
- Subject options: I want to tell your story. Are you a magical creature? Are you a badass warrior, a pokemon trainer or just half of a loving couple?
With my painterly style, I’ll turn your idea into art. My work revolves around the figures, so props and background will be minimal (if requested at all). I’ll paint people and their pets. I won’t paint extremely gory pictures, although some gory details – a bit blood, maybe a heart or a brain in a jar – are acceptable. I don’t do well with mecha and extremely complicated magical creatures. I trust people’s faces, figures, clothing and their actions/poses to tell a story.
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.
About Helena Alves
I’m a Brazilian art student struggling my way through becoming a proper full time working artist. I’m mostly inspired by the human form and facial expressions, I love telling stories that way. And that’s what I try to do with my digital paintings: I want to tell your story, be it by painting you and your loved ones or even turning you into a magical creature or a cool badass warrior!
