First start with type; one style of portrait will fit your pet's personality better then another - choose the one that best reflects that. Pet portrait illustrations are just that, an illustration of your pet with a realistic yet stylistic feel. And Cartoon portraits, well, they are an awesome, fun, quirky rendering of your buddy with exaggeration on their individual, maybe silly, personalty traits.

Once you decided on type, you can send through a few (JPEG please) digital photos of your pet and I can help you decide which would make the best portrait.

Decide what background colour would work best for you and your home.

Full payment is due before the portrait is started. I can accept e-transfer or paypal for payments. Note, HST is on top of the above prices.

Once the portrait is complete, I will send through a proof and we can work together to edit any parts that need tweaking.

Once approved, the portrait will be sent to you in a digital format that you can use to send to print to your favorite printer, or add to other types of products.

If you would like a quote on prints to canvas for your portrait or prints to paper (for framing), please don't hesitate to contact us.

How do I order a portrait?

Decide which style if most suited to you and your pet. Click on the order button (or the Purchase tab), fill out the form, and we will be in touch in regards to reference photos and payment. Portraits are started once payment is received.

What type of payment do you accept?

Online e-trasnfer is the best option as both of us have a record of the payment. We also accept paypal as this offers a record of payment as well. All prices are in Canadian dollars and include HST.

What type of reference photo should I send?

The best photos are high resolution, clear, well lit JPEG's. Most phones these days will provide just this type of photo. It is always best to send a few different photos for colour reference. The best poses are 3.4 views, but face on works as well.

What do you provide for the cost?

What you get is a high resolution, super awesome portrait of your pet, either cartoon or realistic style. We send you the high resolution file so that you can print the portrait at a printer of your choice, saving you shipping costs, time, damages that can occur during shipping and any other fees associated with shipping.
We do however, for a separate fee, offer prints to canvas that can be picked up or delivered within the Halton/Peel region.

Can I add items to the portrait or other pets?

Within reason, we are happy to add items, such as a pets favorite toy, to a portrait. For an extra fee, we can add another pet to the portrait (cost depends on the portrait size/style).

How long does it take to create a portrait?

Typical portrait times are between 2-4 weeks for completion, with the cartoon portraits being completed quicker then the hybrid style portrait.
