For best results, provide a high quality photo or photos of your pet. Natural light is preferred as it showcases the pet's true colors and provides better detail to paint from. Also please ensure eyes, nose and any unique features are shown well; this is important as they will be rendered exactly as pictured.
Within 3 days of placing an order, you will receive an invoice for the deposit payment. Work will begin on the painting upon receipt of this payment.
