Realistic Drawing Commissions

There'll be nothing quite like seeing your friend or loved one's face light up when you present them with a beautifully detail portrait drawing. Whether it's of their beloved pet pooch, wedding photo or children, capturing that memory in a realistic and delicate portrait drawing will be the perfect gift! 

Take a look through some of the previous commissions I've done, and if you'd like something drawn please get in touch!

For me, absolute quality is my priority. All portrait drawings are produced on fine, heavyweight paper using graphite, and are ready for framing when they get to you. As proof of authenticity, your one-of-a-kind original artwork will be signed and dated as a Richard Jarvis original.


How does it work?

It's really very easy! All you have to do is follow the steps below:

  • Send me the photo (or photos) that you would like to use for your original drawing (Just click the button at the bottom of the page)
  • Let me know if there is a deadline you'd like your drawing by
  • Tell me what size you would like it
  • Any special requirements?
  • I'll then get back to you ASAP with a quote - simple!


Do you require a deposit?

All I ask for is half of the total value of the commission before I start, and then the remainder on completion. 


How long will it take you to draw it?

Depending on the size you'd like the drawing it could take anywhere between 2-4 weeks depending on how many other portrait drawings I have on at the time.


What happens next?

It's my turn to do what I do best, turn your photo into a beautifully hand drawn portrait. I’ll keep you updated throughout the creation process too, so you can see your photo come to life!
