Each figurine is 100% custom sculpted, this is to ensure it resembles each person as accurately as possible. The sculpting process takes many hours with faces being the hardest part, which can sometimes take up to 8 hours if the correct photos are not supplied.
FACES: IMPORTANT! I will need good, clear, sharp, well lit photos of your face with the expression you want depicted. Close ups ( your face and shoulders filling most of the picture ) against a neutral, light colored background. If you are to be smiling then all the pictures, including the profile should be with a smile.
Often figurines are requested as suprise gifts and taking photos of the person is not always easy. I don’t recommend requesting a model without at least the correct facial photos or there is a big chance it wont resemble the person accurately and you will not be completely satisfied with the product. If there is absolutely no way of taking additional photos please supply me with what ever you have and I will confirm if I feel comfortable making the figurine with them.
A. Full front: Both ears will be shown equally (Girls tie hair and fringe up for face photos).
B. Full profile: Both sides with eyes looking straight ahead (opposite brow and cheek not showing).
C. ¾ view: Part of opposite cheek showing (Maintain same smile for all face photos)
D. Glasses: If you wear glasses I will need one front view of you with them on. All other photos should be without the glasses in all angles.
E. Hairstyles: Front, sides & back. Include a reference image for wedding hairstyles to be used.
F. Full body: No two bodies are the same and to make sure your proportions are accurate I require front, sides and back photos straight on with hands by your side.
G. Special pose: If you are requiring a sitting/lying pose please take photos of all 4 sides with hands, feet and head in the same position for all.
H. Couples & family pose: For two or more people together or animals please include photos of everyone together so I can see relative heights and sizes. This is in addition to individual photos.
I. Clothes and props: Pictures of all elements of the clothing you will wear from all angles with close-ups of any details and props. Reference images can also be supplied but take pictures of yourself in clothes that fit similarly if possible.
J. Pets & Animals: Front, sides & top, showing all colour patterns and markings.
K. Motorcycles & Bicycles: For the motorcyle enthusiasts please take photos of your bike/scooter with you on and off it from all sides as well as any close up details.
REMEMBER: The more detail you give me the more detail your figurine will have and the more recognizable and memorable it will be to you or your loved one.
