Strike your best runway couture or street-style pose in your favorite outfit! Upload a clear reference photo of yourself or your giftee and I will transform it into a custom hand-painted watercolor fashion illustration. Select any add-on options below while I brew up a cup of tea. I will be painting with watercolors on 6x8" 300G watercolor paper and will email you once your painting is shipped out.

There are limited slots available so be sure to claim your spot soon!

Who is this for?

Perfect as a surprise gift for that fashion-forward, always-on-trend loved one or bestie of yours. You know who they are and this is a great way to show you appreciate them (and their style!) in your life.

Or treat yourself! If you're a fashion-lover, blogger, dancer, or model looking for that extra special personalized content that's unique to you, look no further! 


Please allow three weeks for custom commissions to be completed plus time for shipping from NY. Generally, I will finish and ship out sooner than that though. While shipping times during Covid are outside of my control, I can email you a web-sized preview of the finished illustration for you to show your giftee before the physical illustration arrives in the mail. You may request the "web-sized preview" in the Notes section. 

Rush Order

If you'd like to make a rush order, please email me at helen@oceantakeflight.coms to see if I can accommodate your request before ordering. Rush fees may apply depending on how soon you would like it completed. 

What photo(s) should I upload?

A clear photo in your or your giftee in a pose and outfit you like. Personally, I love dramatic poses but feel free to upload what's true to you. Or if you already have some fashion or dance TikTok/IG Reels videos, you could link those in the notes for me to pull a screenshot from. You may choose to upload either a half-body or full-body photo reference. Just know that half-body illustrations would allow for some more room for facial details than a full-body illustration would. If you are unsure which photo to select, you can upload multiple photos and I will choose which photo would best translate into my fashion illustration style. 

If you select a background with plants, florals, and/or a pet below, make sure to also upload clear photo references for those as well in any combination! For instance, you could upload photos of an array of plants for the resident plant mom/dad, or photos of your favorite flower along with your pet that I arrange around the figure. If you select the background add-on option and don't upload any photo reference for it, then you are leaving it up to me to decide what background elements to paint. And if you choose not to select any background  options, you may still request ink splatters for the background within the Notes section.

Please note:

  • These commissions are for personal use only. For commercial commissions, please email the request to 
  • All commissions will be drawn in my personal style and exact, photo-realistic likeness is not the goal of these paintings.
  • Also, because this is painted in traditional media, there is unfortunately, no undo button for watercolor paint and so, no changes will be allowed once the painting is done.

Optional Add-ons:

  • +$40 for each additional person with 4 people max on a page. (PLEASE NOTE: If you select 4 people, that fits either 2 adults + 2 small children, or 1 adult + 3 small children. I would not be able to fit 4 full-body adults onto one page.)
  • Gold/Silver Accent Brushstrokes: +$15
  • Minimal, Abstract Background Shapes: +$15
  • Plants, Florals, and/or a Pet as Background Elements: +$40
