Studio Caricatures

CARICATURES BY RUY

Gifts From Pictures
Caricatures make an unforgettable gift for Birthdays, Holidays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Retirements, Corporate events…in fact any occasion. They are the perfect gift that lasts throughout the years and always puts a smile on people’s face. Unlike the quick party caricature, I take my time with the studio projects. You will find the likeness and details impressive.

Traditional
This is drawn on bristol paper using Copic markers, color pencils, and pastels.
You can choose any size or standard frame size between 11×14″ thru 18 x 24″.

Digital
This starts with an composition sketch approved by the client. The sketch is then scanned and transformed to a fully rendered high-resolution quality image.
This is all done with a Wacom pen display and a Mac using both Photoshop/Illustrator.
The cool thing about digital is it can be modified or updated.
You can choose any size or standard frame size up to 13×19” or multiple prints that would fit in that format.
I also provide standard tablet, smartphone, and desktop screen sizes and a high-resolution file so you can print more.

Cost
To get the most accurate quote for you project I would need you to provide the following info:
Will it be a full rendered body with theme/activity or a face only including shoulders?
A reference of the style and detail. Choose one from my gallery or something online.
What will be included within the artwork besides the main subject?
Do you want a background?
Basically, the more time the project takes, the higher the cost.
Rush jobs also incur extra charges.

My fee is $40/hour.
Once an estimated time frame is established my standard commission terms would be half down and the remaining balance upon completion.
Completion usually takes 10 working day.

What I need
3-5 high quality digital pictures of the lucky victim 🙂
Preferably recent images with a good representation of a natural smile or personality feature. Also please specify eye and hair color.
