About This Gig

Send me a photo of you or of somebody else and I will make it look like a painting or illustration.The result will have the texture of a real hand painted picture, with the characteristic brush strokes, colors and everything that you associate with a real piece of fine art. You can then use this digital painting image as your Facebook profile picture, as your Twitter avatar, or you may send it to somebody as a gift. Your source photo must be of good quality, well lit, large and crisp. Dark, blurry, grainy or overexposed photos will not produce good results. The better the quality of your photo, the better the final result will be. Small photos will produce equally small final paintings, so don't submit thumbnails. Huge photos are welcome, but will be scaled down to 1000-1500 pixels of width. *** Photo must be from the chest up. For a full body photo, you will have to purchase the Gig Extra. *** If there are several people in your photo, you will have to purchase the corresponding Gig Extra. *** For a printable 300dpi image, you have to purchase the Gig Extra (and to provide a good source image). *** That's it - from photo to painting. Have fun!
