Digital Portraits & Paintings

Thank you for your interest in availing my services. My objective is to bring to you a quick and affordable alternative to real paintings with the help of today's digital technology. The  portraits that you see here are not done by just a few clicks with Photoshop filters. They are the combined application of techniques in the use of leading image editing softwares and of age-old principles in art. They are inspired by the styles of renowned artists in history.

A good quality digital portrait by me starts at PhP 250. It all starts with a good photo. Read about tips on choosing  photos  HERE.


For PhP 250, a photo you submit to me shall be converted into a digital painting. You will get a 800x1000 pixel image file that you may have printed to the size of 8"x10" (8R). Printing centers charge Php 55 for 8R images. You can then have the print framed. You can find nice frames in department stores ranging from PhP 200 to PhP 500. The lowest that you can actually spend for a framed digital portrait is PhP 500.

Framed Prints
I have simple black frames (with glass) for 8"x10" and 11"x14" prints on photo-paper. Both frames have a 3-inch white matting which visually enlarges the artwork and goes well with contemporary interiors.



Canvas Prints
Bring your digital portraits closer to the feel of real paintings by having them printed on canvas. The image is inkjet printed on canvas, stretch on a wooden skeletal frame and sealed with a protective coat. Even without a decorative frame, the simulated brush strokes and the canvas texture alone gives a grand statement. One would have to take a closer look at it to realize it is not a real painting. For me, it really doesn't matter if the artwork hanging on your wall is a real painting or not. Presence of art is what matters.
 


Prices
Click on the price list below to enlarge. You can order just the jpeg file of your digital portrait or order a print on photo-paper and have it framed. You can also order a canvas print of the same size and frame it the same way as you would a photo. Unstreched canvas prints, with a 2.5" allowance on all sides, are also available so you can have large prints shipped to your address and have them stretched and framed in your nearest framing shop. Note that the prices below does not include shipping cost.


Shipping
I ship nationwide thru Xend. Small prints are sent in an envelope. Large photo-paper and unstretched canvas  prints are sent in a plastic documents tube. Large stretched canvas prints and framed prints are sent in a corrugated box.

Below are the shipping cost of each item based on the volumetric weight of the package:


Shipping large prints can be costly. If you reside in Muntinlupa, Las Piñas, Parañaque, Pasay, Manila, or Mandaluyong, I can meet you in a nearby mall to save you the shipping cost. Just reimburse my fare. ^_^


How to Make a Payment
You can make a payment thru bank deposit to my BPI account or thru Paypal. I'll give you the account details in my reply to your inquiry.
If you chose to be photographed by me you can hand me your payment at the shoot, but if you prefer, you may still pay thru bank deposit or thru Paypal instead.
I will start working on your portrait as soon as I verify your payment.
