Custom Pet Portrait Commissions

Announcement: Please be aware that commissions are currently closed, I will not be taking any custom work for the time being. Sorry for the inconvenience. – Danielle 


Below is the information regarding “Portrait-style” commissions.
This information can also apply to paintings that do not fall into the portrait-style, but will require a personalized quote.
This information is to give future clients an idea of the costs of their desired painting before a quote has been given.

  • Portrait / Full body
  • Background

Composition – Bust or Full Body

Portraits can be done in one of the two compositions: bust or full body.

Number of Subjects

The common number for subjects to be contained within the painting is one, although it is possible to include additional subjects. There are two main styles that can be applied to a painting with more than one subject: isolated portraits (works best with critters that are in a range of sizes), and incorporating all of the subjects into the same environment (as if they are sitting or standing next to each other).
