THE REFERENCE PHOTO

 

Have a relatively "GOOD" photo of the animal(s) that you want to commission. 

      - Note that better photographs (higher resolution) will result in better quality Art.

 

Pictures that have a slight tilt or turn of the head are always the preferred photo's, this will give more depth and make

the piece seem more real.

     - Please avoid any filters on the photo as this will not render realistic with the finished piece.

Example of Quality

POOR

GOOD

EXCELLENT

Example of Angle

GOOD

BETTER

BEST

-  Having the angle of the figures head on a slight tilt will again create more depth into the piece. Straight on pieces can be done, but try to have the photo on the animals level, rather then a photo looking down on the animal.

Selecting Size

I have a few set sizes I work with to make it easy to matte and frame with common sizes you can purchase at art/framing stores. But other sizes can be arranged.

Prices FOR 2021

Prices are based on a single figure head and shoulders and based on paper size (full body can be done, please contact to see best size to work with).I work with only the highest quality pastel pencils and coloured pencils to ensure lightfast and that the vibrancy will last a long time on each piece.
