About your photos and our portraits
Please read carefully!
Since the quality of the finished portrait is directly relative to the quality of the reference material provided, the larger and clearer the images you submit (submission is done after you checkout through PayPal) will directly increase the overall quality of the finished art work you will receive. If the images are questionable, send in additional images with descriptive notes so that we can use them for additional reference material when we are creating your portrait.
If the image quality is too poor, all is not lost. For an additional fee we are able to utilize other outside reference sources in combination with your existing images in order to produce a beautiful portrait done in the spirit and likeness of your animal.
Since I do not know your animal, all I have to go on is the reference material you send me. Please, do not be shy, send us additional photos with notes to help identify the details unique to your animal. The more reference material the merrier. We will return all of your reference materials along with your finished portrait.
