How it works
2. Pay Deposit
Once your $100 non-refundable deposit is received and we've looked over your photo, I'll get started on your hand painted portrait! This deposit will be applied to the final price.
3. Delivery + Final Payment
When your custom pet portrait is complete we will coordinate delivery and final payment. You can send your final payment through my website, use code DEPOSIT to apply your deposit.
Submitting your pet portrait photo:
Once your $100 deposit has been received, send me an email with your photo to:
Please make sure that your photo meets the listing requirements:
(i.e. an 8x10 watercolor pet portrait for $250 is for one head shot of one pet only.)
In the body of your email, share the story of your companion to help me get to know their personality!
Then attach your photo - making sure it is clear and well lit. Be careful of back lighting or cast shadows. Most smartphones can take a great photo if you just follow a few tips! The best lighting is during the day, with loads of natural lighting. If indoors, taking a picture by the window works well. If you need to, find something to keep your phone steady, and try to get your pet as still as possible. It may take a couple tries - so don't get discouraged! Several of the example photos below were taken on the same phone in different conditions - so it is possible to get a great shot!
Examples of a good photo:
Examples of a bad photo:
-Great, full view and centered head shot
-No items in the way
