How to Commission A Portrait 

  •    To commission a portrait contact me by email at beckyspetportraits@yahoo.com
  • Decide whether you want a monochrome or colored portrait and if you want head and shoulders, whole body or multiple subjects. Refer to What is Digital Art?
  • Send several pictures through email for me to reference. Try and send at least one close up of the face and one of the fur color in natural lighting. Refer to Photo Tips for kinds of pictures that work well.
  • Please allow 2-3 weeks for completion of portrait. I will send updates through email or you can watch the progress on my facebook page, www.facebook.com/beckyspetportraits. Note if portrait is a gift or surprise, let me know and I will only  update you through email.
  • A 50% deposit is required to start a commission. The other 50% is due before I email the file or have it printed.
  • For printing, I use a Print on Demand site, called Fine Art America, they can print on a variety of papers, canvases  and can even mat and frame your portrait so it is ready to hang. Refer to Pricing page for more details on prices and package deals I have to offer.

Photo Tips

  • Take clear photos in natural light.
  • Take photos at eye level
  • Avoid flash.
  • Get as much detail as possible.
  • Remember the portrait is only as good as the photo, I can’t draw what I can’t see.
  • Send several photos, some of which have closeups of face and fur color.
  • I may be able to schedule a photo shoot and take the pictures if you are within reasonable driving distance. Charges for  photo session and mileage apply.

Here is an example of a bad photo. It is blurry, washed out because of flash, and taken in indoor light.
