How To Get Involved
Before getting involved please make sure you follow these guidelines carefully.
-You must be 18 or over
- The images you send must be of you
If you fit into the above criteria then please follow this step by step guide to buying your commission and sending your nude photo to be drawn.
1. Buy your commission
Follow @arewenearlybareyet on Instagram to receive updates about when commissions are available.
Please buy your commission from the products page when they are next available.
If you are wanting to buy a commission as a gift for someone please purchase a gift voucher so the recipient can purchase it themselves and not incur and late fees when sending their photos.
2. Receive email
Once you have bought your commission you will receive an email to confirm your order then a following email from me with more details about how to take your photos and how to send them.
3.Take your photos
Please use a self timer to take your photos (Or get someone else to take them for you) mirror selfies don't usually translate well but if you have an absolute fave just send it over and I can tell you whether it'll work or not.
Don’t worry if you can’t get everything within the frame as its best you are closer to the camera than far away.
Please take your photos during day light or very well lit with artificial light. Make sure the light is coming from behind your device and few shadows are cast on your face. If I cant see what you look like, I cant draw you.
Please do not use any filters, this needs to be an honest raw image of yourself.
No clothes are too few, full monty, underwear…whatever you want to make you feel GREAT
If you can’t decide on one photo feel free to send a selection to let me choose from.
If you're buying a commission for two people to be drawn (including mum and baby) please take the photo with you together, I cannot draw two separate photos (Unless discussed prior to purchase)
If you have any tattoos, piercings or smaller details you’d like included please send additional close up images for me to draw from if they’re not clear in the photo.
If you'd like any additional things added to the commission please make sure to let me know. Any big changes asked to be made once the commission is complete could incur additional amendment charges.
3. Email your photos
Once you have received and email from me and taken your photos please respond with
Whether you would like your AWNBY image shared/used for exhibitions
Your full name
Address (To send the print to if not on order)
Your Instagram handle (If you would like to be tagged..not essential)
If you’d like to include any bits about yourself, your story and why you got involved please do, it’s great to share this alongside the image to give it narrative.
I do request that all photos are sent to me a week after purchasing your commission however I understand life can sometimes get in the way and this isn't possible, as a good will gesture you have a months grace to send the photos with no additional charge.
Photos sent after a month will incur a late fee which you must pay to redeem your commission this is £30
All commissions are no longer redeemable a year after purchase.
Thats everything I will need from you. I will always send a confirmation email within 24 hours of receiving your images and will confirm when you should expect to receive your print (On average 3-4 weeks)
Finally and VERY importantly, the original images you send to me are completely private between us and are under no circumstances shared or shown to anyone else Once I have drawn from your photos they will be deleted from my emails and devices.
