Pet Portraits

Custom pet portraits from photos. Your best friend illustrated by hand with loving attention to detail.

I will paint any species of pet from dogs and cats to birds and horses. I typically use a combination of colored pencil, chalk pastel, and marker for each piece, depending on the look desired.

Reference guidelines:
The photo should be clear (not blurry or grainy) with good lighting. It should show your pet's face and any other feature you want included in the portrait-- if you want the whole body in the portrait, it is essential to choose a reference that shows the whole body.
