Artistic Pet Portraits
Are you looking for someone to draw a special portrait of your lovely pet? Look no further, I am able to draw and paint the likeness of your furry, feathery, or scaly friend with an artistic flare! I have several pricing options as well as the availability of mounting and matting drawings. Check out the pricing below, and if you're interested, feel free to email me through my Contact Page.
What to Expect
Please be sure to check out my drawings and acrylic paintings so that you can get an idea of my art style before you make a commitment. I do ask for 40% up front before starting on any project and a sketch is available for preview before I paint or apply ink pen. Additional sketches will be an extra $20 each. All artwork is done by hand and not on the computer, so once the artwork is finished, please understand that changes will be difficult or impossible, especially with ink-pen drawings. I do allow up to five minor changes on paintings, anything after that or any major changes will be $20 an hour for paintings only. Drawings are a different story since ink is permanent and I am unable to erase or "paint over" ink. I can arrange a redo for drawings at extra cost. Also, keep in mind that art takes time, small drawings can take about a week or two to complete, but a large drawing or a painting can take a month to complete! If you are planning on giving the pet portrait as a gift, ensure that you are providing me with ample time to complete the artwork before your initial request. Please remember, I am human and not a camera or computer, so all artwork is done in my own artist style and colors or styles cannot be changed once completed, so again, please look at my artwork before I begin creating your pet's portrait. Thank you for your understanding, and I look forward to creating a pet portrait for you soon!
