More examples of photo to portrait.

On this portrait of the little girl i have turned the composition to portrait from landscape and added the top of her head, I also added about three inches to the bottom of the portrait to make it so that her eyeline was halfway up the paper which makes the whole portrait more balanced overall, This ment i had to invent the bottom portion of the drawing ie' her arm and dress. Please note that this is a scanned image so it has lost some fine greyscale subtlety's and appears darker than the original work.

On this wedding portrait above i have zoomed in on the subjects so that more of their face detail can be seen without loosing the atmosphere of the picture.

On this portrait above i have added her right elbow as i felt it had a better composition overall.
