- the process -
When submitting your order please include a few details about your pet!
Include what you'd like in the finished piece--what feeling are you looking for?
What's your pet's favorite toy, what's their personality?
After completing your order, please send several reference photos (and any additional details I should know)
Either attachments when you email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or a link to an album/Instagram
Examples of photos and general guidelines below!
Once I begin work, I'll send you drafts and ask for approval when I complete:
The rough sketch -- last chance for feedback on pose & composition
The color draft -- last chance for feedback on color and small details
If you would rather not spend time on feedback and want to leave the whole thing up to me, please specify this when you complete your order or send me references!
After the portrait is finished, I'll print it on 8.5"x11" matte photo paper and ship it to you if you’ve opted for a physical copy! Expected turnaround is 4 weeks maximum, depending on how quickly I receive feedback :-)
- reference photos -
If you are unfamiliar with sending reference photos for artwork of your pet, follow this quick little guide before emailing me and you'll be all set!
The key is sending photos that show a variety of angles that altogether show a good image of their face, coloring, patterns, and any notable features you want me to include.
(I love drawing rats!)
Avoid photos that are blurry or unclear, only show part of the animal, or show the animal behind something like bars or glass. Keep in mind that photos with harsh, non-neutral lighting (such as photos taken at night with only yellow lights on in the room) make it difficult to color your pet accurately.
When in doubt, send more than you think I need in a variety of poses and environments.
And that's all! Please feel free to send me an email with any questions about portraits or other commission types. Be sure to read the full terms on my Hire page. Let's make a piece that you'll absolutely love!
