Custom Portraits


Getting your custom portrait done couldn’t be easier!

V. Allen Design creates custom charcoal portraits from photographs that are sent through standard mail, or from images that you send via e-mail. Just send a copy of your images to V. Allen Design with a description of your request and your contact information. V. Allen Design will create your portrait and will send the draft copy to you via e-mail for final approval. Once you are happy with the draft, the original charcoal portrait will be shipped to you via first priority mail. A scanned copy of the original portrait will also be sent to you via e-mail so that you may create as many printed copies as you desire.

All charcoal portraits are B&W, 9” x 12” and are unframed.

As you can see from these samples, it is not necessary to send a large image for V. Allen Design to create your custom portrait. Just send a copy of whatever snapshots, photos, etc. that you desire (please do NOT send the original photo) - color or B&W - and provide a written explanation of what you are looking for.
