Prices listed above are for one pet. The figure’s head and neck will be incorporated in the drawing without a background (like a traditional bust), if you would like a full body portrait please contact me for additional pricing.
For portraits including more than one figure please add an additional 30% of the listed price. If you would like more than three figures please contact me for a custom quote. For multiple figures I highly recommend choosing a larger size as you may lose some details.
The specified sizes above are the paper size. I generally try to leave an extra ½” or so around the edges of the paper to allow for matting. Your pet will fit comfortably within the paper size, blurring out along the bottom edge. If you would like your pet to go off the paper please let me know.
A deposit of 30% of your total is needed to secure your booking and so I can begin working on your portrait.
You must be able to provide a high-quality, well-lit photo with an unobstructed view of your pet – photos will be approved before guarantee of drawing.
I recommend taking photos in natural light, while avoiding direct sunlight which can blur details and create an undesirable contrast. A photo in natural light will bring out the variety of colors in your pet. When taking photos of an animal, get down to eye level with them. Try to encourage them to look at you by holding a treat near the camera. I recommend NOT taking photos with flash, as this will wash out their colors. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
See examples below,
Once I have your photos and your deposit, I will begin with a rough sketch. After that has been shared with you and any changes have been made, I will begin working on the final drawing. I will send snapshots of your drawing in progress and once it is complete I will send photos of your finished piece. We will work together until the piece is exactly what you want. Once you’re happy all I need is payment for the remaining balance of your piece, then it’s all yours! The expected process time is about 2-3 weeks.
I will let you know before hand when I can anticipate starting and completing your piece. Generally, turn-around should be within a month of you contacting me.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me!
