Custom Pet Portrait Commissions!

I am currently closed for commissions until early November to work on personal projects & prepare for my convention season. Thanks for understanding!

I love doing commissions & portraits of animals. Here some information on my commission work, specifically for pet portraits and pattern illustrations!

Here’s what you should include when sending an email to thebeanbaguette@gmail.com:

  1. your paypal email so I can recognize you & send you an invoice
  2. which commission type you’re interested in
  3. about 3-5 clear reference photos
  4. some little details about your pet so I can create a fun composition that characterizes them!

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, patterns, and any notable features you want me to include.

(I love drawing rats!)


Examples of less helpful reference photos are ones that are blurry, don't show enough details of the animal or are photos of them behind objects (like their cage or enclosures!), or have harsh, non-neutral lighting (like a dimly lit room with only a yellow lamp).


Even this photo, which I really like, has an Instagram filter on it which makes the whole image very yellow. This is fine, just make sure you send a few different references so I can really see the color :)

And that's all! Please feel free to send me an email with any questions about portraits or other commission types. Let's make a piece that you'll absolutely love!


Include any notes you might have about what you'd like included in the finished piece--what's your pet's favorite toy, what's their personality?
Be sure to send any reference photos to thebeanbaguette@gmail.com as well! Thanks!
