The Process

The work that comes out of D&D is the finest silhouette work done in watercolor. The tinniest of details are hand illustrated using pen and digital paper to captured and enhance characteristic from the lips, noses and hair styles as well as eyebrows and jawlines, all of which help define a persons' personality and make it look more like them. We take the traditional silhouette illustration and then digitally overlay it with hand painted watercolor washes to create a piece of art that brings the love and life of your child or furbaby to your home as truly special forever keepsake.

3 simple steps

Select your keepsake and all it’s precious details; washes, wreaths, precious metals, etc).

Then prepare your photo for step 2.

Once you’ve selected your order and all its delightful details, you can choose to upload your photo with your order OR choose to upload it at a different time. You have up to (6) six months to upload your photo!

Tips for a great profile photograph: 

  • Is the photo showing the nose, lips, and neckline?
  • Is the photo eye-level with the person in the photograph?
  • How does the hair look? Does it represent the personality of the person in the photo? (photos of girls tend to look a little more personal when hair is up)
  • A little bribery goes a long way!

You are also welcome to upload your photos at a later date or more convenient time.

After you place your order you’ll receive an email with your proof.

Get excited! Your order is on its way!
