I create custom-made, hand-drawn portraits of your favorite animal or pet. The portraits are made on 8x10" high quality Arches 140lb. watercolor paper, with ink and watercolor paint.

TIMEFRAME: Once you place an order, I will message you to let you know how long it will take--usually once I get started on it, it will be done in two to three weeks. We will also talk about specifics of the portrait before I get started.

WHAT I NEED: In order to make your custom portrait, I will need high-quality photos of the animal--at least one full body photo in the pose that you wish the animal to be drawn (good resolution, not blurry, at eye level rather than from above, and no cropped feet or tails, preferably!), as well as a few supplemental photos (a closeup is helpful). If you don't have these, contact me to see if we can make what you have work, but accurate portraits are easier when you have good photos!

You can also let me know if you have special requests (what text or name to include in the banner, color of the banner, collar or no collar, etc.).

REVISIONS: Within one to three weeks I will send you a pencil sketch in advance of the inking and painting. One minor revision is included in the price of the portrait. After that all rounds of edits are $25.00.
Please note that this portrait is an artistic expression and will not be a literal and exact portrait.

DIGITAL FILES: Included in the cost, I will send you a high-res digital scan of the portrait, and a lower-res emailable/uploadable digital scan as well.

MAILING: All portraits will be packaged in an acid-free artwork bag, reinforced with cardboard to prevent bending in the mail, and shipped in a flat mailer, with shipping insurance. Paintings are not matted or framed.

IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM WHAT YOU SEE LISTED HERE: Contact me! For images with multiple animals or other variations, contact me for a quote.
