Does Dog Doodlez only make portraits of dogs?
Not at all! I love all animals (even snakes!). If you would like a different animal portrait, send me an email. I love a challenge.
How do you create the pet portraits?
All pet paintings are hand-drawn by me using Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Winsor & Newton Water Colors, Acrylic Paint, or fine art ink pens on textured colored Canson paper or white Bristol paper ready to frame. I use your photos of your pet for reference when drawing. Good quality photos will result in the best pet paintings as I can capture more detail.
How much are your pet portraits?
Prices depend on the size of paper you choose. Below are some standard sizes I offer but I can provide a quote for any additional size you wish. Prices are subject to change.
Colored Pencil Portraits:
- 4x6inches - $110
- 8.5x11inches - $165
- 11x14inches - $220
- 20X26inches - $350
- 9x12inches - $65
- 4x4inches (roughly) - $50
What is the process to place a pet portrait order?
- Go to the Dog Doodlez Shop and choose which portrait style you want
- Choose which size of portrait you would like from the drop down menu
- Click the "Add to Cart" button
- Continue to your checkout (upper right corner)
- Enter your payment information
- Email email@example.com photo(s) of your pet(s)
Please make sure that the photo is a close up of your pet's face. Feel free to take multiple photos of your pet and send your favorites to me. Make sure your photo is in full color (not black and white, sepia, or any Instagram filter).
can I see the progress of the portrait painting?
I will post the progress of my work on my social media sites, please feel free to follow me to see more!
I Have more than one pet, but want them all on the same canvas. Is that possible?
I can draw multiple portraits on one paper, but it will cost $50 more per each animal ($10 extra on an ornament). Also, multiple animals are only allowed on certain portrait sizes. Please contact me for more information and if you are interested in this option.
Do you offer framing for the pet paintings?
I do not currently offer framing; however I can recommend a couple local custom framers or, for a more affordable option, visit your local craft store like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Aaron Brothers, etc. to purchase off the rack open back ready-made frames. Check your local store’s website for 40% coupons or 50% off sales.
How much is shipping?
Standard shipping is FREE for valid U.S. residents, and $20 for expedited shipping. Standard delivery usually takes 3-5 business days. Expedited delivery includes speeding up the art process and a faster delivery. An email will be sent to you when the order is shipped.
As of 2017, I am offering international shipping! YAY! For $25 I can ship your portrait anywhere in the world! Please allow for a longer delivery time.
How long does it take to complete my custom pet portrait order?
The turnaround time for a pet portrait depends on how many I am already working on and the time of the year, but typically I can complete it within 3-5 days (after receiving photos, not after order is placed). I work on portraits in the order they come in. If you have a special date that you need it by, please contact me and let me know your circumstance and I can see if I can get it to you in time.
Christmas time gets a little crazy, so you will definitely want to put in an order early!
