How to prepare your Custom Cartoon

I have been producing funny customised cartoons for my customers for many years. I will always be happy to discuss with you  the whole process of creating your perfect gift cartoon from start to finish, so give me a call or drop me an email.

In the meantime here are some handy points to consider when commissioning your cartoon.

Working from Photographs.

Sounds crazy, but please select photos that look like your subject. You know what they look like, but I do not. 

Best photos are one that show as much detail as possible – avoid face-on shots. Avoid hats, sunglasses, dark shadowy photos, tiny images, heavy sunlit photos where your subject is squinting.

Please click here PhotosDosAndDonts to download a quick guide of best shots to consider.

Initial Cartoon Sketches

Sketch # 1

Once I’ve received your commission details I start to produce one or two rough sketch images. This is where all the rough layout design work takes place. I use the best of your ideas (if not all of them) to produce this first drawing. If any changes need to take place, this is the stage to do it.

Sketch #2 

Here the small alterations have taken place, approved and ready to move onto the final artwork stage (above)
