Hand-drawn from a photo or photo's, you will work directly with the artist to ensure the best result. Each piece of artwork takes from 15 to 35 hours to complete depending upon the media and number of subjects. Portraits are created with graphite pencil on acid-free paper or soft pastel on acid-free sanded paper. The most common sizes are 8" x 10", 12" x 16", and 16" x 20", but others are certainly possible and can be accommodated.

Tips for Reference Photos:
Portraits can only be as good as the reference photo used for the painting. So, to be sure that the artist gets every detail just right, please send a high-quality reference photo to paint from or a digital image of at least 1,600 pixels high: .jpg or .tif formats preferred. A painting can also be created from a series of photographs to ensure that your pet is captured just right.
The best portraits come from photos that are at a slight angle to animal's face and with the camera at the same level as their eye (not from above or below as this distorts the animal's face).
Photos taken in natural lighting on a slightly overcast day, or in the morning or evening when the sun is low in the sky typically make for the best photos. Taking pictures at these times ensures less shadowing in the face and it is much easier to see details and colors.
Finally, your photo should capture the personality of your pet for the final portrait.
