We are very lucky to be able to indroduce you to Ryan, our Artist. Ryan has been passionate about creating and designing things ever since he can remember; from drawing, furniture, lighting, websites, sculpture and everything in-between.

 

After working on a variety of commissions for family and friends, he has realised that he gets huge satisfaction, and motivation

in seeing that his drawings, paintings, and other creative pieces make others happy.

 

Although typically aiming towards hyper-realistic portraiture work, Ryan can accommodate a range of styles to suit any creative visions that you may have, and is not limited by any medium, nor outlandish ideas.

Cost


This depends on many factors, such as medium, size, number of pets in the portrait and whether you would like a detailed scenic background or diffused colour background. 

 

It is always a good idea to consider all these options when asking for a quote, but if you want to chat them through first please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The Process

 

Before Ryan can even start work on you pet portrait he needs high quality photographs to work from.  Please follow these tips on how to get the best photos.

 

To ensure he can achieve the best results for your pet portrait it is important that he can work from clear images which show the unique details of your particular pet such as the fur, eyes, markings etc. If possible it is always best to send three or four images pointing out which one is most true to their colour. If you wish to send us some new photographs and you are not experienced in capturing pets here are a few tips I hope you will find helpful:

 

  • Photographs taken outside without flash or by a large window are the best way to avoid red eye.

  • Try to avoid a really sunny day as the sun will cast dark shadows on your pet and the photograph won’t reflect their true coat colour. Likewise avoid a really dull overcast day.

  • Ideally take your photographs with your back to the sun but try to make sure your pet isn’t squinting.

  • Take your pets photograph at their level rather than looking down to avoid any distortion or unnatural pose, and make sure that they are facing the camera if you want a head and shoulders pet portrait.

  • Try to get as close to your pet as possible whilst staying in focus; this will give the maximum amount of detail and make painting the portrait easier.

 

Below you will see a couple of examples of what sort of photograph makes a good pet portrait. The quality of the photographs are essential for your pet portrait as I can only paint what I see.
