Pet Portrait Q&A

Multiple Pets in One Portrait

Looking to put more than one pet in the same painting?
If you can get a photo of them together, there’s no extra charge : )

Combining multiple photos into one image to add more pets, or change a pose or background, background, has a 20% surcharge. This is for the extra time fixing lighting, perspective other issues that come up during painting.
