Description

I will draw and colour with markers a custom cartoon illustration of your pet!

A cartoon pet portrait makes a unique and charming keepsake for pet lovers!

How it works:

1: Place your order through this listing. Pay attention to the size. Each size allows a certain number of pets with a variety of options to choose from.

******All portraits come with only a minimal background/ Colour BG only. A more complicated Background would be like the cat in the stocking with the detailed garland, or the cat with the planter box. a simple BG is like the 2 cats on the blue blanket, or a simple one colour. if you have questions, please just message me :)

2: Send me as many photos as you like of your pet in good light. You can send me your photos via Etsy message or email guru (at) Gurukitty.com. Please reference your order number.

3: for the 5"x5" and up sizes, Let me know if you have any specific poses or actions otherwise I'll use one of the photos as a reference. Give me an idea of their unique personality for me to capture! Keep in mind, these are really cartoony so they're not going to be exact representation. I believe I am good at capturing a bit of personality and representing unique features well, so it will still resemble your pet. Take a look at my examples.

**Note: for the 3"x3" size is a face portrait only. the small size prohibits too much detail, or active poses. think if it as a little school photo of your pet.

4: I will sketch the portrait and email you a photo of the sketch. Let me know if you want some changes or if It's ok to go ahead. A couple changes is ok but if you keep changing your mind I may ask for a further fee to accommodate the extra work.

**Please note, I work quickly and try to ship it within 10 days however delays in responses to my communication will delay the shipping.

5: I Complete the image by inking it and then colouring it in markers.

6: The drawing is mailed to you packaged securely sandwiched in foamcore for its protection!

The illustrations are done with Copic Markers on Marker cardstock 5"x5" (Xpress it blending card). The original drawing will be sent to you with a rigid backing inside a sealed clear plastic bag to help prevent damage from shipping as much as possible.

Please don't display these in direct sunlight!

All of the examples in this listing were previous commissions!

FAQs

For Custom Pet Portraits:

Please do not display them in direct sunlight.
They will fade over time if exposed to too much light.
If you frame them I recommend Museum glass, or UV glass or Plexi. I do NOT recommend non glare as it lets more light to the image. When framing do not let the image touch the glass. Over time it will stick and be destroyed (This goes for all framing). Having a mat or frame spacers in front of the image keeps them away from the glass.
Please use acid free/ archival quality materials in the matting and backing material to protect the art from damage.
The best way to care for your original watercolour painting is to put it in a frame as soon as possible. They are matted to fit easily into standard/common frame sizes to make sure you will have no problem finding frames that fit the art and your decor.
If you are going to be hanging them in rooms with a lot of natural/direct light, you can protect them by upgrading your glass to UV protective glass, however the paint and paper are archival professional grade paints and fading/colour shifting should be minimal even in those conditions.
Reproducing original artwork is difficult, we have used a variety of photos and scans using full spectrum and regular lighting to help give you as close an approximation as possible. Due to screen setting variations, lighting variation and other variable the colours may not be exactly as shown.
If you need a logo you need to hire a graphic designer to make sure that you get a product that will be the most value to you and have the proper licensing for commercial use.
Its not that I cant do it, I just think that there is the right person for every job and I am not the right person for that job.
I'm an illustrator doing custom pet portraits because I love pets and want to draw for people who love their pets.
My art is created for personal use/ display and I do not grant licensing for it to be printed on other material or products.
If you want to simply make one article of clothing with the image I can arrange that by printing it myself and will charge you the cost of converting the image to a printable file and the cost of the item.

I will not give you a printable file.
