Martinela Toons

Looking for custom portraits? You are in the right place! The custom couple, family and pet portraits are personalized art pieces, modern illustrations for people looking for original gifts that make people smile.

I love seeing how the characters take shape to resemble the honored ones, It's a great pleasure to send smiles around the world through my custom portraits and printables, I am honored when my designs are chosen to be part of a special occasion.

My mission statement is helping you create special gifts and party printables, I do anything in my power for you to have a good online shopping experience.

I offer gay and lesbian designs to celebrate love between 2 people independently of their sex. When I was a teenager a boy very close to me went through a very hard time coming out, things were different then and it wasn't easy, today he is happily married to his long time boyfriend. I want to do my bit by showing my support to the LGBT community and make things easier for them.

I am Spanish but I have been living in Ireland since the year 2000, I am a self-taught illustrator dedicated full time to my passion, creating fun custom cartoon portraits.

Martinela Toons is a one woman business, after falling in love with digital design, I learnt to draw with Adobe Illustrator and slowly, after a lot of hard work I developed my own style.

I come from a creative family, before I started drawing I was putting all my creativity in the form of cakes, cookies and desserts working as a pastry chef, I really enjoyed that time until my passion for drawing took over and I moved on.

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take?

....A draft will be sent for review through Etsy messages within 5 business days after purchase and receiving the photos/info. ....Revisions will be done within 24 hours Monday to Friday.
....Do you need it sooner? Contact me to check if I can help you with a rush order.

For printed portraits allow up to 3 days for printing and dropping your parcel in the post. They ship from the US.
For custom text only printables, you can expect the draft for review within 1 business day.

What's the best way to print the files?

PORTRAITS- I recommend to print as a digital photo on matte paper. INVITATIONS & STATIONERY- Print at home or the local print shop on white bright, thick card stock, invitations can also be printed on photo paper. You can upload your JPG files to an online printing service, if you choose VistaPrint please let me know when you order, they require special sizes and I have to use their own template.

What kind of photos do you need for the portrait?

Clear, high resolution, front view photos work best, please send me photos that best depict the people or pets to include in the portrait, you can also send pictures of preferred clothing or describe styles. I can create a group portrait from different reference pictures,

Will I receive a proof for review? Can I request modifications?

I will send you a draft of the portrait for revision, at this time you can request modifications, I will work on the illustration until you are satisfied.

**Changes to outfits different from the ones initially requested and already drawn might incur in an extra fee.

Can you add objects and backgrounds?

I can add backgrounds, props to represent hobbies, professions, and interest, favorite drinks, anagrams, logos, portable objects...

Let me know what you would like or tell me a little about the people in the portrait if you want me to suggest some ideas and give you a quotation.

...Different poses might cost extra, contact me and we can discuss it.
