A Personal Gift

I was recently asked to create a birthday present using two different pictures of someone's grandparents. These two picture were the only images she had with herself and her grandparent's in the images. I was asked if I could create a simple drawing using these photographs which could be given as a gift for her mother.The two images of the Grandparents shows them holding her as a child, the two separate images were taken at different distances making the figures separate sizes. I suggested I would be able to create an image which she could give as a gift which included both her grandparent's could be sat with her in the same image
Taking the two images and altering the scale of both of the images I was able photo-shop to create this joint image carefully overlapping how the figures sat togetherFrom this I then was able to create this drawing of them all together

As these pictures are special memories I used soft colouring to add to the gentleness of the scene. The original photographs lighting is in draining, direct flash-light whitening the face and creating dark shadows behind the figures. I adapted the colours and retained pattern of her grandparents clothing.

If you have a particular image or an idea of something that you would like to create please feel free to contact me with any details you can provide and I can present some options to you.
