Hire Freelance Portrait Illustrators

Portrait Illustration is the art in which the distinction of a person, object, creature and others are highlighted that will make a portrait of a person instantly recognizable. Portraits are used in literature in order to accurately depict how a character is supposed to look according to the author’s specifications.

An artist chooses an expression, a gesture, physical characteristic, or mannerism that's familiar with a personality. For creating a realistic or abstract portrait as an illustration a skilled artist is required. You can hire Portrait Illustrators who understand the power of line and shading to create form as per specifications mentioned.

What Is a Portrait Illustrator?

Portrait Illustrators are professionals who create a compelling likeness of a celebrity, creature or world figure through careful observation of those qualities that define them respectively. They emphasize a feature or trait for which the particular subject is best known.  These artists will draw out those characteristics that make a character who they are. Portrait Painting Artists have a very high level of precision to ensure that the ratio of the facts and figures of subjects are maintained in the painting. They understand the impact of color, light, highlight and shadow, and angle of view on a subject while drawing. They work on important details such as flesh tone and hair texture and are skilled in digital rendering of the face and other features wherever required. They apply complex isometric techniques to add perspective to design shapes. Illustrators create illustrations for a younger audience in the form of drawings in children’s books, for doctors and researchers in medical journals, scientific exhibits and other areas as per project requirements.
