For my ink illustrations, I simply use fountain pen ink and water. This sometimes gives part of the images a purple tint. Images are then scanned and touched-up in Photoshop to remove dust and lighten the background.
Ink illustrations range from £15 for a simple portrait, to £30 for a full painting with intricate details.
“Rendered paintings” are paintings with a focus on a smooth, semi-realistic finish. Multiple textures and custom brushes are applied to add dynamic effect, and details are worked-into for maximum definition.
A further stylised style is also available, as in the piece below:
Rendered paintings start at £50 for 4 hours (which is the usual amount of time taken for a headshot with a somewhat simple background), and £8 is then added per extra hour. (E.g. busts add an extra hour, etc) Expect higher end prices for: complex backgrounds, full-body images, intricate details such as tattoos and markings, and fur.
