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 will next open.

Please buy your commission from the products page when they are next available.

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 will not be accepted unless previously discussed.

Your face needs to be in the photo and most of your body (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.

Please do not ask me to add things on or miss bits out, these images need to be a true representation of you.

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. 

If you have any tattoos, piercings or smaller details you’d like included pleaser send additional close up images for me to draw from if they’re not clear in the photo.

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

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.

4. Complete!
