A realistic portrait is a promotional idea that can be adapted constantly.
This illustration was for a German opera singer. He’ll be using it as a promotional device throughout the year, adding different elements for each occasion or theme. It’s a brilliant idea and I imagine his clients will enjoy receiving these postcards.
Working from different photos and my imagination, we constructed a more smiley expression and ended up with a good likeness. The main thing of course with a portrait is always that the client likes it and this portrait was a success as far as that was concerned.
Meanwhile, if you need a portrait of yourself or a loved one, or even a caricature, do contact me.
