Update: Search over! Thank you to all who expressed interest :)


Hi there, I'm currently looking for a realistic portrait artist (digital or traditional) who is willing to help me with reconstructing (sketching out) the face of one of my ancestors based upon the photos of his closest relatives and facial details given by me. I am willing to pay for this if you are willing to help me.


Here's a breakdown of the situation:


I have been researching my family tree for over five years now and have been collecting old photographs from around the family of my ancestors. I have made amazing discoveries when it comes to old family photos over the past year. I managed to find one photo of an ancestor of mine who fought in the U.S. Civil War. There is, however, one photo of a certain individual that I have failed to find and desperately want to. That person is my great-great grandfather. I have asked around nearly the whole family, and no one appears to have a photo of him or even believes one exists. The man came from a poor family and his family rarely took photos. He passed away in 1936 and only a small handful of people are still alive today who knew what he looked like (and of these few, they were all toddlers when he was still alive). All I've been able to find about him were vague stories and descriptions from his grandchildren and lone-surviving niece.

My question is: Is there anyone out there who would be willing to help me in trying to piece together what my great-great grandfather looked like?

I have tools to help build a sketch of what he looked like. I have access to photos of his closest relatives as well as descriptions from the people who knew him and saw him. I have photos of six of his eight children (two passed away young). I have photos of his wife as well as photos of two of his brothers and a photo of his father.
I'm sure you're aware of why these photos are important but just to clarify, these are his children, brothers, and father. These individuals are the family who received, shared, and passed down his facial features. His wife's photos are important when it comes to separating the facial features that their children didn't share with him. 
I'm not looking for the best, but a general sketch of what he might have looked like, based upon descriptions and photographs of his relatives, would be really appreciated. I will closely work with you and give you as many details and descriptions and references as possible to help you with the sketch. I also offer to pay via paypal if you would like money in return. We would have to negotiate a price.

So please if you are a realistic portrait artist or you know of one willing to work with me, I would really appreciate it if you would consider helping me with this small project.

If you are interested or know of someone, please comment below or note me. Thank you!
