Curious about what makes a good illustration or silhouette image?
How should you take the image? Your smart phone or camera is just fine to take an image of the special someone or pet to have customized artwork created from. Have them face forward. Stand at their side and take their photo at their eye level.
Do you see the person's profile details in the image? Side view of eyelashes, nose, lips...
Check out the photo below for pointers and compare to your image!
Your smart phone or camera is just fine to take a current image of the special someone or pet you would like illustrated. I have created artworks from recently taken phone images, professional photographs, and even vintage snapshots. I accept up to 6 people in one photo to illustrate.
