how to order
 
step 1: send me photos and a short description of your pet's personality. 

 

 I prefer photos that:

  • include different angles

  • include at least one good facial close-up

  • include at least one good full body pose (naked, with paws and tail visible) so that I can see all body markings and colorings

  • are taken in natural lighting that show accurate colors

  • show size relationships if there is more than 1 pet

  • are labelled with your pets' names, if there is more than 1 pet and if they look similar

  • show toys, collars, costumes or any object that you would like me to include in the drawing

 

  1. Do you have any pose/expression preferences? (or would you like to leave this up to me?)

  2. Any background color preferences?

  3. Is this drawing for commercial use? (this will cost more and include transfer of copyright ownership)

 

If there is a specific pose you want to see, please let me know before I start drawing. If you change your mind on the pose after I have already done the drawing, I will request extra payment to start from scratch.

 

step 2: mailing address & payment

 

Please send me your mailing address and let me know if you have a payment preference. I accept credit card, Paypal, and Venmo to be paid in advance. 2%-10% from this amount will be donated to a non-profit animal rescue group at the end of the year. Let me know at the time of ordering if have a rescue group you would like me to donate to.

 

step 3: time frame

 

This will depend on how busy I am but roughly 2 days to 3 weeks (not including shipping time).  I will first email you a JPG preview for your feedback. When the revised drawing is finalized and approved by you, I will print, sign and ship the drawing (or place the large print order), and email you a link to download the PDF file.

 

Domestic shipping by USPS First Class Mail takes approximately 2-7 days. If you are expecting a larger print and in the USA, this will take approximately 8 working days. International First Class Mail can take up to 3 weeks.
