Reference Photo Guidelines
Here at Covatar, we use a completely different approach to creating digital illustrations, which distinguishes us from the competition. In a nutshell: we don't trace photos. Our illustrators adhere to the strictest creation process guidelines.
We sketch each portrait by hand from scratch using skills and techniques acquired over years of practice, experimentation, and learning.
Our artists will need your very best reference photos to capture your character and create the most suitable custom result. Not every photograph or image is up to snuff, but most are - and you look amazing!
✦ Please avoid sending us low-resolution images and photos taken from too far away. When your eye is exactly one pixel in size - it's tough to guess what you look like!
