Thank you firstly for visiting my site and for inquiring about a custom illustration done by me!
Below is what I ask of anyone interested.
E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with some good quality pictures of your lovely four legged friends, portrait or profile are great.
The only reason I say this, is sometimes in the past I have been sent images where the canine or feline in question has been either completely blurry, or at a very funny angle, which makes it hard to capture a good likeness. Which is what I intend to do.
Images at eye level are best, as the perspective then is always correct.
I like to hear a bit about your canine/feline friends personality, that also helps me to capture and imagine what their characteristics might be like. ?If you would like your friend wearing a favourite hat, bow tie, jewellery etc, then any info regarding that is also greatly received. The more personal they have, the better.
Just let me know.
Price and Size
The custom illustrations start at:
$150 for an 8 x 11 inch portrait without background, and with a background they are $190
$230 for an 11 x 16 inch portrait without background and with background they are $260
Postage and Packaging
All portraits are sent via a courier service. This is insured and traceable and quick. it normally takes between 3-5 working days to arrive to you.
I use a courier as I find it fast and reassuring for myself and you, the customer, to be able to trace your package and that it arrives in a reasonable time period.
This cost is $35 outside of the UK, in the UK it is $20.
Your portrait will be mounted on a backing card and packaged between 2 pieces of thick board to prevent damage, bubble wrapped and gift wrapped with custom paper.
More Than One Canine Or Feline In A Portrait
This will be discussed via e-mail to determine the size and quantity of models in the portrait.
About the Portraits
All my portraits are pen and ink, but do resemble water-colour, as they are often mistaken for!!
They are produced on archival paper unless otherwise discussed with me.
Any other questions then please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
Bye and thanks again for passing by.
Have a fabulous day.
