Pet Portait Commissions (Digital Only)
Whether you want a portrait of your own furry friends, or want to purchase such a thing for a friend or family member, I love trying to capture pets' unique personalities in digital portraits. Why digital? In this ongoing pandemic mess, I've had one of a kind artwork lost in the mail, be late as hell for time-sensitive events, or show up looking like it was used as a soccer ball. It's so painful for both me and the client! I hate it!!!
Here's my process for drawing your animal friends:
Step 1) Purchase a portrait here! I will also accept a half up front, half at the end deal if that is preferable to you. Reach out to me about that and we can discuss it!
Step 2) Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) any photos you'd like to use as references and any notes on what you're after. The more notes the better! Size/color/pose, all of that is helpful to know up front so that I can provide a sketch that matches what you're thinking!
Step 3) A day or two after you've sent me all your notes and pictures, I will send you a sketch to make sure we're on the same page, then I'll send you updates as I work on the portrait. Sometimes at this early stage, I include some color too. Other times, just a pencil sketch.
Step 4) After the sketch phase, I will be working on a portrait that is as finished as can be! If I have questions about the direction I'm going in, I'll email you the work in progress so you can give me some notes. Once I have those, I'll complete your edits and then send you a "final" image for approval.
Step 5) Once we agree it's finished, I'll send you a high-resolution image. If you realize that you need it in a different size, or even want a few sizes, let me know and I can resize for you. That part is easy.
Step 5.5) If you like the work I do, PLEASE refer me to others. It's how I get the bulk of my work -- friends of friends. :D
