With Human, Charcoal or Sanguine - Custom Pet Portrait Memorial Drawing
How about capturing your pet AND their beloved human in charcoal or sanguine pencil? Your drawing will be done on high quality, heavy-weight paper made especially for this media. Prices listed include one animal and one person.
My goal is always to improve on the photo, not just copy it. Please see my bio for credentials, and you can browse a more extensive portfolio at http://www.myanimalart.com.
Small sizes will be mailed flat, but larger sizes will be loosely rolled for safer travel. If you're ordering from outside the US or Canada, please write me first and I'll give you a shipping quote.
Here's how this will work:
1 - Choose your size and send payment. I'll confirm and send you a convo.
2 - Send me photos of you and your pet(s), and tell me about their personality. Please try to send a variety of photos - outdoors, indoors, flash, no flash. The more, the better, but I'd like at least 3-5. Photos with good natural light and no flash usually lend themselves best to a drawing like this, but I use the rest for reference. Some people send me links to their instagram, flickr or facebook albums of their pets. That works really well. If you have a preference on which photo to use, let me know.
3 - I begin work on your drawing. Because of the custom nature of this drawing, once we have come to an agreement on which pose and background we're using and my work begins, I'm unable to give any refunds. BUT...
4 - Rest assured, I will send you progress photos along the way for your approval - one with the compositional layout and basic light/shadows, and one final. After each progress photo is approved, that particular element cannot be changed without incurring an additional fee. Once I begin work, the drawing will take between 1-2 weeks depending on size and your timely approval.
5 - I mail your drawing.
Thanks for reading all that, and I really look forward to "meeting" your beloved little guy or girl!
