REFERENCE PHOTOS:

IMPORTANT: You must email me AT LEAST 3 high resolution photographs of your pet together with your order. The more photos you send the better.

TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR PET

  • Take photos of your pet using a digital camera capable of taking high resolution images. Taking pictures with your cellphone is fine as long as your phone is able to produce high quality images, meaning pictures should be clear and in focus and not pixelated when blown up.
  • The light source should be behind you when taking the picture. Do not use a flash when taking a picture of your pet. Photograph your pet in different settings in natural light. Note that photographing your pet in extremely bright light, may cause them to squint and may cause their pupils to be completely constricted.
  • Your pet does not need to be looking directly at the camera to take a good photo. But if you absolutely want your pet to be looking in the direction of the lens, have someone call your pet’s attention by holding a toy or a treat at your shoulder while you are taking a picture.
  • Take the photograph at your pet’s eye level instead of while standing over your pet. Shots taken from above or while you are standing over your pet tend to distort proportions. But, of course, if you have a good eye, feel free to shoot your pet from whatever angle you feel will produce a good picture.
  • High-quality shots of your pet in action are also acceptable.
  • For pets that refuse to hold still, use the sport or burst setting on your camera which will take a series of shots in quick succession.

PROGRESS and COMPLETION

  • Please allow 2-3 weeks, from time of confirmed scheduling of your order, for completion of the painting (Time required for shipping not included). Rush orders will incur additional fees.
  • Upon completion of the painting, I will send you a picture of it for your approval. I guarantee that I always do my best to capture the essence of your pet in the style represented by my previous works, and to accommodate all reasonable requests for the painting. However, if for some reason and despite my best effort, the finished painting does not satisfy, you may choose not to complete the payment. I will, however, keep the painting and the deposit.
  • Once you have approved the painting, you may send in your balance with the shipping fee, and upon receipt of the payment, I will send you your painting. Delivery time may take 1-3 weeks depending on where you live.
