CARICATURE: A detailed, flattering, semi-realistic portrait of one or two people. You can choose between full-colour or grey tones. This is a full- or part-body portrait.

PROPS: Have fun adding props that show the person’s character, occupation, hobbies etc. For example, objects held in the hand like cooking utensils, musical instruments, or standing next to the person like furniture, vehicles and pets, or worn like superman suits, as well as background scenes like an office or campsite, and wording, such as speech bubbles, labels and logos.
There are two levels of props to select from:
- MODERATE PROPS: Two or three simple items, for example a costume, braai scene, dog or cat, musical instrument, hand-drawn wording and icons
- FANCY PROPS: As above with more complex or numerous items, for example a motorbike or car, detailed background scene, buildings.
Not sure about adding props? Consider a Head & Shoulders portrait with either no props or just a small, single item.
PRINTING: If you’d like us to print for you, we do the recommended size A3 – but you can print at any size from A4 to A2 (you’ll receive the digital file as well).
FRAMING: This portrait looks fantastic framed and is made to fit standard frame sizes.
