Black and White Caricature

Monochrome images are one of the most aesthetic genres of art. A black and white caricature can perfectly convey the emotions and depth of the picture. They ideally create contrasting images with a rich plot using only two colours. In Photolamus, you can order a black-and-white caricature for yourself or a friend and get beautiful handwritten artwork. Our professional artists will create a monochrome portrait based on the photo that you sent us as a reference. Such an image will be an excellent gift for a friend or family member. The image can be stored in a frame, and its digital copy can be used on social networks. Our caricatures have a high resolution, so they can be printed on large-format paper. Please send a reference photo and write your idea of a caricature. Our artists realize your vision most aesthetically.

Why do you need to order a black and white cartoon?

Art should create a storm of emotions, and caricature is the genre that best copes with this task. A caricature in black and white style may seem minimalistic because only one colour (black) and a background color (white) are used to create it. However, in the artist's skilful hands, even such a small toolkit can be used to create awe-inspiring images. The monochrome caricature has a unique depth and a sense of three-dimensional space. Yes, such caricatures are never flat. The images on the black-and-white caricature have almost tangible forms. This feature of the monochrome genre is actively used in the creation of comedy cartoons. After all, a caricature can be fun and give positive emotions due to its "plot". The plot refers to how the artist parodied the original image of a person. It includes exaggerations and thickening of colours. The usual smile in the caricature is depicted in enlarged forms. Facial parts, facial expressions, and body proportions create a comedy plot. Due to its visual advantages, a monochrome picture can make this comedy plot more tangible, thanks to creating a unique experience between the image and the viewer.
