The Final Bell - The Finished Product

When your caricature is complete, we will professionally package and ship your artwork.

All the artwork is still the creative & intellectual property of Rope A Dope Toons. Rope a Dope Toons has the right to display the artwork on their website or Social Media. We will however never use anyone's names without permission, only display the artwork.

So, here are the Correct Type of pictures....

Ok, now for the Wrong Type of pictures....

Please do not send the following type of pictures to ensure we can get you a great caricature. See images below.

• Someone in a picture of a large group.   They are way too small to see any facial features.

• People wearing a hat. They cause terrible shadows on the face. Even if you want the picture drawn with a hat we need to be able to see under that hat to see that face. No shadows please.

• Don't send a picture of someone looking up or down.  If you take a selfie of yourself looking up even slightly, you will appear to have the biggest nostrils in the world. If you are looking down you'll look like you have a huge brow.

• If you send a picture of someone making a goofy face or fake smile...remember I don't know that person.   Your artwork will look like there fake smile.

• Please don't send pictures with poor lighting.   I have to see the details on the persons face.

I am not trying to be some premadonna artist.   I just want you to get the absolute best caricature of you , your family & your friends.

Thank you again for choosing Rope A Dope!!
