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
Example of Angle
- 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.
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.
For multiple animals in one portrait please contact me for pricing email@example.com
