Old Photo Turned Into Painting

November 23rd, 2010

We completed this order several weeks ago.  The original photo was rather old and grainy.  When working with old photos, it’s sometimes difficult to turn the photos into paintings because it’s difficult to see the intricate details of the photo.

The customer in this case wanted the painting done but with a few changes.

Here were the customer’s requests.

The first photo is how my in-laws should look in terms of where they stand and how their clothes look.  My mother facial expression should match exactly like the first photo except her mouth should be close like the second photo.  Also photo 2 is how I would like to have my father in-laws facial expression to look like.

The third photo was created by our Photoshop expert.  We sent the Photoshop mock-up to our customer and they liked it.  We started the painting, finished it, and the customer was ecstatic.

Our company has done all types of paintings.  Some of these paintings are more unique than others.  A couple weeks ago a person contacted us about doing a cat portrait, but it wasn’t your typical portrait.

This person really liked a painting done by Eugène Delacroix and wanted her cat painted in a similar fashion. The customer emailed us two photos, one of her cat and one of the painting she liked. I’ve attached the two pictures below, and below those pictures is a picture of the completed painting.

And here is the completed painting.

Working Magic

January 7th, 2010

Here’s another example of our team working magic.

We received the two images below from a customer.  Here was the customers exact request.

I have a request to combine two pictures into one portrait. The primary picture is of my two friends sitting in a military sidecar unit. The second picture is of their daughter who was not even born at the time the original picture was taken. Since my friends are sitting on the motorcycle seat, as if they were driving it, I think they would enjoy it if I incorporated their daughter into the portrait as if she were their passenger.

To facilitate requests like this, we have a photoshop person on staff to create mock-ups.  The mock-up below was created and approved by the customer.  Unfortunately, the photo of the girl wasn’t the highest quality, but our team was able to work with it.

Side Car Mockup

The mock-up was presented to our artist, and our artist produced the beautiful 30″ x 36″ oil painting below.

We Can Combine Multiple Photos

September 23rd, 2009

Customers contact us all the time with a problem.  They want to have a painting done of several people, but they don’t everyone in a single picture.

Well, we can solve that problem as long as you have a picture of each person.  Below, is an example of a painting we completed several months ago.  The customer wanted a painting done of the entire family along with the grandparents.  They had several pictures, but not a single picture with everyone in it.

So, they sent us the four pictures below.

We took the four pictures and handed them off to our resident photoshop expert.  Our photoshop guru created the mockup below, and it was approved by the customer.

Our artist used the photoshop mockup as a guide and created the painting below.  The customer was thrilled with the result.

So, if you have multiple pictures that you want combined into one painting, contact us and we can create a photoshop mockup for you.

Wedding Painting on NBC TV Show

February 18th, 2009

I’m a big fan of Chuck – an NBC drama.  I’m not going to bore you with the premise of the show.

While watching the show on Monday, I spotted a framed portrait on the wall that looks like a portrait painting.  I’ve posted an image of the framed portrait below.  You be the judge.
