Yes, 2, 3 or 4 persons can be drawn together in one drawing. Of course the costs will be higher (and sometimes the size of the drawing has to be enlarged). Please look for details in our pricelist.
Group caricatures (5 persons or more) are possible on special request. You can ask for an offer that will suit you.
I do have a special request for my caricature, is that possible?

fulfill your wishes.
Can I have a sneak preview on my order?
Yes, you can ask for a sketch. This will be presented to you by e-mail offering you the opportunity to give us your feed back and remarks.
Additional costs: 35 euro
Can I have confidence in the creative quality of the caricature I ordered? A good photograph with strong resemblance is our starting point. (E.g. the colour of eyes and hair has to be very clear.) All caricatures are drawn by outstanding and experienced sketch artists. On our website you can see many examples of caricatures in their specific styles. You can always add some description of the person to your order giving the sketch artists a more complete view on the person that has to be drawn.
I am not completely satisfied with the resemblance of the caricature, what can I do?
Our drawing is based on the photograph(s) you send us; we donâ€™t know the person. That can be a problem when judging the resemblance of the caricature. You will compare our work with the person you know, but we can guarantee you that our caricature can be compared with the picture you send us. Therefore it is really important to provide a good quality, recent picture to us and (if you wish) add a precise description of the person. Alterations afterwards are NOT possible! Suggestion: Choose for the extra possibility of a sneak preview.
Can the caricature be reproduced in high quality? Every type of caricature comes with its own specs:
Type 1 in 800x600 pixels, 72 dpi(= dots per inch). Suitable for use on a screen and high quality printing up to DIN A5-size (148x210mm, 5.8 x 8.3 inches).
Type 2 in 1200x800 pixels, 72 dpi. For screen use or high quality printing up to A4-size (210x297mm, 8.3 x 11.7 inches).
Type 3 in 1600x1200 pixels, 150dpi. For screen use or very high quality prints up to A3-size (420x297mm,
16.6 x 11.7 inches). Type 4 in 2400x1600 pixels, 300dpi. For screen use or top quality prints up to A3-size (420x297mm,
16.6 x 11.7 inches). The results as A2-prints (594x420mm, 23.4 x 16.6 inches) are fine.
Are the caricatures drawn by an advanced computer program?
No, all caricatures are drawn by skilled professional sketch artists on a digital drawing tablet using state-ot-the-art software.
What do you need to know about the copyrights on the caricatures? It is forbidden to sell, rent or publish the caricatures or use them for any commercial purpose; private use is never a problem.
