Photo Guidelines

  • Big and clear. Head should be larger than 2 inches, with good resolution
  • Front or 1/4 turn view.  We need to see the shape of the face.
  • Clearly show the subject's facial features - eyes, nose and mouth definition. No sunglasses (unless they'll be wearing one in the caricature).
  • Capture the person's typical smile or common expression. If you want the person drawn smiling, then we will need a photo of the person smiling.
EXAMPLES OF GOOD PHOTOS

EXAMPLES OF BAD PHOTOS

  • Small, blurry or dark.
  • Head turned, face obstructed by hands, etc.
  • Slated or bashful face is bad because it changes the structure and demeanor of the face and shows an expression that is rare.
  • Squinted eyes.
