Creating a Portrait of Character

Phase I: 

The session is approximately 3-4 hours.

This includes the initial meeting to discuss the scene, wardrobe, props and options for poses.

Photoshoot is against a white backdrop as I will be cutting out the figure to work in photoshop.

 

Phase II: 

I email the result of the photoshoot so a selection is made of potential poses that could be combined with a different face or hand. The best options are assembled and then emailed for review. I will then proceed with any details that require changing. This could be straightening out clothing to buttons to adjusting props.

 

I work on the background separately. Once the pose is approved I will insert the figure into the scene. I will email the image at that point to see what details need to be altered and I work on those adjustments. Once approval is finalized, I finish refining the image with such details as lights and shadows so to create a composition that looks seamless.

 

The final artwork is printed on watercolour paper. The “print package” will include the selection that is ordered.  A low resolution image is included and will be emailed and is for personal usage which includes social media.

 

Photos are taken at my studio in Kingston, Ontario. There may be a possibility to travel to a location and travel fees will be determined according to the distance from Kingston, Ontario.
