******************************************** ART STYLE ********************************************

One (1) to Three (3) pets: face, half-body, or full-body.

***************************************** BACKGROUND *****************************************
Please select the type of background you want:
a) Blank Background - No shading, white background
b) Light Shading - Single tone background (See the 3 Spaniels in the 3rd photo for example)
c) Black Background - Fully shaded until black/very dark graphite gray
d) Detailed Background - Any setting included (grass, yard, blankets, etc. See examples in photos 1-4)

******************************************** PROCESS ********************************************
1. Purchase the Custom - 8x10 Pet Graphite Drawing listing.

2. I will send you a message with my e-mail address for you to send photos to.

3. Send me high-resolution photos: at least 4in x 6in for portraits (1200 x 1800 pixels), 5in x 7in for full body (1500 x 2100 pixels). If you are unsure about your photo, just ask! The sharper the image the more details your drawing will have!

4. If you want changes made from the photo (change background, finish the cropped off ears, etc) make sure you write that in when you send your photos. I will send a message to double check. :)

5. We will communicate through e-mail, and you will receive progress photos.

**************************** PROGRESS PHOTOS: (see 3rd image) ****************************
· Sketch – Graphite line drawing. This is where we discuss features, image cropping.

· Rendering – Full shading (highlights, shadows, changes in fur color), details (I am a detail-oriented artist =D), shaded/rendered background (can be left white if you want).

***************************************** TURNAROUND ******************************************
Five (5) to Seven (7) Days from receiving the reference photo(s) (not including shipping time). Could be sooner or later depending on communication. If both sides check e-mail often and respond with clear descriptions/changes, it will go quickly and smoothly. If I don’t hear from you for approval of an image, I can’t move forward.

If the artwork is needed sooner than Five (5) Days from receiving the reference photo(s), PLEASE let me know! We may have to discuss a shipping upgrade.

Your drawing will be sprayed with Krylon Crystal Clear fixative spray to lock the drawing onto the bristol paper. You can read about my process 0n my Shop Policies page http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheArtofKris/policy
