About MCB Pencil Portraits

About Picture Drawings Of People, Pets And Other Subjects From Photos

There’s something very special and unique about the magical aesthetic that pencil portrait drawings can capture. I will capture as much detail from the photograph in the pencil portrait drawings.

All my customers have had a good experience interacting with me to draw their pencil portraits and are very happy with the results:  Google Reviews.

My hand-drawn pencil portraits are delivered unframed as standard; however, I am happy to frame the pencil portrait for you. Please select a frame from my frames page by clicking on the link in the footer. I can provide this service from an online source, saving you a lot of time and hassle doing it yourself.

If you do choose to include a frame with your order, the pencil portrait will be neatly inserted into the frame and carefully wrapped for maximum protection.

MCB Pencil Portraits:

My name is Mike, and there is nothing more exquisite than drawing people, pets and other subjects from photographs. All too often, people overlook the artistry and elegance that the gentle strokes of a graphite pencil on canvas can provide – but I have always aspired to change that.

A Unique Approach to Art Capturing Every Detail

I am entirely self-taught as an artist. Away from the constraints of a classroom, I’ve had the opportunity to tailor my approach to drawings and art to capture the subject’s unrivalled beauty. I view every detail of your photograph, allowing me to capture even the most subtle of details for a finished pencil drawing that is simply extraordinary.

Stunning Lifelike Pencil Drawings For You

If you ask me, no other painting style can compete with the spectacular beauty of pencil drawings. Every one of my picture drawings is finished to the highest standard to capture every subtle aspect of your photograph, giving it an exceptional finish that only adds to the original beauty of the photograph.

Contact me today if you are thinking of commissioning me to draw a pencil portrait from your own special photos. I’ve created some of the most lifelike and emotive pencil drawings for clients all over the world, as well as here in the UK; it’s my passion for providing the best that has helped me earn so many 5-star reviews, and I’ll do my best to help you create the artwork you’ve always wanted as well.

View my drawings on my drawings page or on Instagram (link below), where I share the best drawings from photographs, mainly pet pencil drawings from photos.

Lead Time

Lead time depends on the subject matter, the pencil portrait’s size, and the workload at the time. We are looking at one to eight weeks to complete the pencil portrait drawing. Christmas is the busiest time of the year, and ordering a pencil portrait two or three months in advance is advisable.


If you’re purchasing your pencil drawings as gifts, I can help you find the perfect frame to finish off your pencil portrait. Every drawing is sprayed with a gloss varnish to create a clear protective coating that allows the pencil drawing to last a lifetime.
