Direalita Illustration

When I needed a hand, I found your paw.

Never commissioned an artwork before?

Don't worry, here comes all you need to know.

These realistic portraits are created exclusively with the highest quality art materials available, to ensure that it lasts a lifetime without losing its original quality, so you can cherish it forever. Your portrait is a one-of-a-kind artwork, created only for you and will not be reproduced for any purpose.


I offer both coloured pencil and graphite portraits, in three different sizes, on three available paper types that depend completely on your personal preference. Check out the exact options below.


In each case, I will ask for your ideas and photo references to discuss all details before starting your portrait, so you will be involved in the process completely. Once I start your portrait, the process will be documented and shared with you via email in the form of one process picture and one finished portrait for your approval.


Upon full satisfaction of the finished portrait your drawing will be carefully packed and sent to you by post, for which the tracking number will also be provided to you. I am happy to offer international shipping, but please note that shipping prices and delivery time depend on your location.


Once I received your collection of pictures and we finalized all details of your preferences, you’re ready to officially place your order by secure online bank transfer or via PayPal. To start to work on your portrait, I will only ask for a 50% (non-refundable) deposit at this stage, the second part is to be paid after a photo of your finished portrait was sent to you via email and is ready to be dispatched.
