The backgrounds in your photo does not matter because we usually remove it from the final composition. Instead, pet portraits rely upon your pet's face and eyes. By posing pets for portraits, you'll capture expressive eyes with almost every photo.
Beautiful photos are nice, but hand-drawn portraits of pets often become cherished images for generations. Hand drawn pet portraits can also be integrated on other things, such as mugs, pillows, aprons, scarves, and more, with every item unique to you, your family, and your pet!
Free and Commissioned Pet Portraits: We draw pet portraits almost daily, and love commissioned work as that is how we support our mission.
We love drawing a variety of pets, too, and not everyone can afford commissioned work. If you would like to apply for a Free Portrait, there are no strings attached other than our work schedule allows us to do it. So be put on the list! We will contact you when we have an opening. You will have the option of having your pet's portrait printed on other things. Under all circumstances, you'll receive a digital print you can post on social media and even printed on your at-home printer!
