Getting Started

Prior to emailing me a selection of photos to look at, you will be provided with guidelines on what photos work best for a drawing.  I will then work with you to select the best photo out of the ones I receive. 

Drawing Size and Cost

Completed drawings are 9" x 12" and with the black mat that is included, the frame size is 11" x 14".  Custom drawings are $115.  If more than one subject is in the drawing, there is an added fee of $25.  Drawings are paid for in full when the order is placed.  This is done through Pay Pal, using a debit or credit card.

Other Information

The turnaround time after an order is placed averages about 3 weeks.  During my busy holiday season, it can take longer.  When the drawing is finished a preview will be emailed to you for approval.  Refunds are not given, but rather a credit for another drawing will be issued.  I have a 98% customer satisfaction rating.  If a drawing has to be mailed, the cost is $16 for packaging and shipping.  The drawing is sent through the post office using priority mail, which includes $100 insurance.

Ordering a Custom Ink Portrait of a Favorite Furry Friend

Starting May 1, 2023, I will not be accepting any new commissioned drawing orders.
I'll resume doing Custom Ink Portraits on October 1, 2023, in time for Christmas gift giving.
I'll be using this time instead to write. I was hired to help get my community better prepared for disasters.
My drawings and notecards will continue to be for sale at Art Studio 360 in Placerville, California.

Things to Consider if Ordering a Custom Ink Portrait

Not a Photograph

Drawings are not an exact copy of a photograph.  Great effort will be made to create an image as close to the photo as possible.  When the drawing is finished you will recognize your buddy and their personality.

Choosing a Photograph

The eyes are the focal point of the drawing, so choose a photo that shows them clearly.  The entire body of medium to large breed dogs cannot be drawn.  My style of drawing is very detailed and the smaller the dog gets that detail is lost.

Pen Options

Every attempt will be made to choose pen colors as close as possible to the colors of your buddy's fur.  However, there are limitations in available ink colors.

White Fur

If a dog or cat has large white areas in their fur, because of the lines and circles I add over the colors, white fur will not stand out as much.

"I got a great big smile on my face when I saw the drawing of Jade.  Boy did you capture his attitude.  You did an amazing job.  The colorful bandana was a great addition."
