What is portrait drawing from photo?

Each portrait has a life of its own. If you compare a drawn portrait with the original motif, you will find that it never looks exactly the same. Why is that?

Most people only compare the similarity of the subjects and disregard the atmosphere, the effect, the special qualities or the feelings of the object at that moment. However, each motif has many different views and characteristics - a life of its own. Sketchus portrait artists know the secret behind a unique portrait versus a detailed photocopy. The transport of these lively moments and feelings is essential for a good portrait, because portrait art shows a special, emotional detail, not just an overall picture.

Have a picture painted from a photo Have drawings made Portrait Sketch based on a photo Order black and white Portrait as a gift Sketchus

In general, a portrait is a drawing that focuses on the face, its details and its expressions. In addition, external specifics and character traits of the object are taken into account. Although the face is the focus in a portrait from the photo, parts of the body and parts of the background can be visible. These elements are used to better represent the type of object drawn, its strengths and weaknesses, to emphasize or reduce them if necessary. A portrait from a photo does not have to look exactly like it was copied, photographed or printed from a computer. If we speak of a unique portrait, it is a work of art, an original drawing with soul, consciousness and feeling. It is the creation of a portrait painter whose emotions will last for hundreds of years without losing their value and meaning. Oil portraits - having oil paintings painted & portraits drawn are therefore popular motifs in classic drawing and are among the favorite depictions of our Sketchus artists.

Original graphite drawing based on a photo - a really valuable gift

Why having a portrait drawn from a photo is a great gift?

Every year, for every occasion, the question arises: "What am I giving?". There are people who don't have a nice portrait of themselves or their loved ones. That's why portrait drawings are a beautiful, lasting memory as a gift . So why not give an unusual gift and have yourself, your children or your partner drawn?

A Sketchus graphite drawing is a personalized drawing that comes from the heart. So you can immediately present this drawing to your loved ones, family or friends and delight them with a special surprise!

Our home and living space is a place we long for after a hard day and always love to return. Don't let the room and the walls get dusty, don't spend 365 days of your time in a monotonous environment. Decorate your home with unique hand-drawn images , defining stories, special moments that make you happy and that you want to remember forever. You are giving your soul peace and tranquility every time you open your door to return Home.

In interior design, paintings are used as a key element, among other things, to highlight walls, fill in gaps, and cover up construction flaws. Fine art portraits emphasize the style, understanding, taste and personality of the owner.

You can get beautiful moments and memories through cameras and smartphones, but a photocopy or a digital computer drawing does not convey deep emotions like something individually handcrafted. An original hand-drawn portrait will give you joy every day, because as soon as you look at the work, it tells you a real lived story. Think, for example, of the painting of the Mona Lisa, which draws millions of people to the Louvre every year because it tells an authentic story that will always fascinate us.

What do you need to know before you want to order a painting?

A high-quality individual portrait costs money

Drawing has been a means of artistic expression for thousands of years. Portrait drawing is so much fun and anyone can draw a portrait. But if you invest in the right portrait artist, it pays off in high quality, better implementation and high artistic standards. Every drawing is unique, every artist is unique and therefore every portrait is unique.

Have a cheap individual portrait drawn from a photo for 49 euros, is that possible? Basically no! In our opinion, a high-quality premium portrait drawing from a photo in A4 format (20 x 30 cm) should never only cost 49 euros. But at Sketchus you can have a very nice puristic, minimalist single portrait sketch made, an art print for €49, which will definitely captivate you and make you dream.

Before you spend money on portrait painting, we want to give you some simple tips and tricks on what to look for. So, ask yourself the questions:

  • Is the picture drawn with pencil, graphite or computer, apps, filters?
  • How many pencil photos did the artist draw: 100 or 10,000?
  • What materials does the artist use? Cheap or high quality?

Real original portraits from photos bring more emotions

Because of the hassle and expense, many websites and artists have now switched to selling printed, traced images and digital poster art rather than a real hand-made image with real pens and real paints. Want to find an authentic original work of art? It's a bit difficult today to have one made by hand. But if the picture was drawn from the photo, which transports emotion, moves as a gift or expresses love and gratitude for one another, the feeling of holding it in your hands is indescribable.

Buying hand-painted paintings is difficult, and it's even more difficult to find an original hand -drawn artist who can bring the client's ideas and intentions to life exactly as you want them to. In fact, there are many people who would pay a lot of money for an original. An example of the portrait of Dr. Gachet that fetched more than 15 million euros in an auction. You could easily have it printed for as little as tens of dollars using the finest ink, stock, or fine art paper. But it will never grab you as emotionally as a Vincent van Gogh original. That's why "Have a photo painted " with original real crafts is the best choice to give family tangible emotions that can be experienced and to preserve the best moments.

Original pencil drawing - will help you more than you think

We all know that painting portraits or black and white portraits is simply a copy of a photograph, but Sketchus believes in more. We all saw many portraits in museums, castles, art galleries, events... At that time we all asked questions who are these people in these paintings. What have they been through? What story do they have? Thanks to these portraits we can imagine the past, history, as well as the stories hidden in it.

Portrait Pictures made with graphite have souls

A graphite drawing shows what the artist sees and cannot be seen with a camera or copy. Thousands of works of art are also called thousands of touching stories that have emerged. Can a graphite drawing, a picture from a photo, change someone's life? There is a young man who was suffering from depression and wanted to commit suicide. His mother commissioned a portrait made of him as a small baby. After receiving the charcoal drawing from his mother, it helped him find his way back and find happiness in life. And one of thousands of other stories that we - the Sketchus Portrait Team - would be happy to write with you.

  • Whether it should be heartwarming for your family!
  • Preserving beautiful memories between children, parents, grandparents
  • A last, fulfilling wish when you want to say goodbye!
  • Thank you to loved ones!
  • A gift for the wedding anniversary!
  • A confession for someone special!

It will share a piece of happiness!

Have portraits painted with the deceased - several photo templates for one work of art

The Sketchus team has been working as artists for more than 15 years in the painting with very blurred, old portrait pictures of many customers and deceased. To draw a picture for the deceased , all we would need is a photographed or blurred photo! We connect with the deceased and with the relatives, families or animals and create a beautiful memory as a unique portrait. We have project examples, references and experiences in the field of reconstruction, works and restoration of old photos . (Portrait with deceased & relatives). This unique selling proposition helps us to create unprecedented and inimitable works. Our Sketchus customers are just simple, ordinary people like you and me. They look for ways to capture happiness, memories and joy. It doesn't have to be an expensive work of art either. The main thing is the emotion and the feeling is transported.

Many photos and templates, deceased family members to a unique portrait - insert the deceased into pictures

You know, it's also Sketchus' favorite theme, connecting people from different templates into one work - inserting the deceased into pictures . Drawing pictures from many pictures with deceased is difficult and requires many elements. Before each portrait, we discuss together which aspect is beautiful, which template is suitable, which style is applicable, the exact positioning of the actors, a before and after comparison. As long as a photo captures a significant moment in life, the photo you see is a beautiful moment or a photo that will definitely surprise the family.

Have a picture painted with the deceased - memories give us courage

Time is fleeting, but memories are not. Loved ones shape us throughout life. We don't forget what they have done for us and try every day to live the best life we ​​ever dreamed of. Departed loved ones do not feel the pain for the living left behind. But we have to process this and move on with the experience. Strength and overcoming come with time.

What does it actually mean to have pictures painted with the deceased?

It is an unrepeatable moment in the life of an important person. It is only when a loved one leaves us that we realize that there is never enough time. We could have maybe had more moments together. Our thoughts go in circles and we ask ourselves what could we have done differently. But the answer of simply living well and not regretting anything seems so far away to us. So we cling to solid memories, to the character, and create stitched, shared images so as not to lose them and ourselves.

Meaning of portrait drawing with a deceased

What does a picture with a deceased person mean to us? We crave repeatability and feel with the person. What the person has given us helps us to grow, unfold and develop. It is called differently, but a simple word for it would certainly be love. Therefore, sometimes a simple small photo picture is a piece of happiness in the hands of each individual.

  • For particularly complex orders where we cannot make a clear decision and would like to take your opinion into account
  • If you stated in the comments section when ordering that you would like a preliminary draft.

Please note:
