Parting ShotsTM Commissioned Art
NOTE:  PARTING SHOTS caricatures are usually commissioned as gifts to a departing soldier, and as such, they often reflect the humorous side of the individual's tour of duty.  This should be done in a respectful manner, in hopes that the subject will be proud to hang the finished image on his or her office wall.  Therefore, we ask that you refrain from including items that may be regarded as too hurtful or embarassing for the recipient, or reflecting discredit upon the unit or the military.  The artist will endeavor to create a flattering likeness of the subject, so please be truthful as to height and weight so we have a credible basis for the depiction.
