****Completely HAND-DRAWN by artist - myself :) - not digital in any way! Size 5" x 7", head/shoulders, plain background. We love our pets like members of our families! They love us back unconditionally. Why not immortalize your pet with a custom portrait capturing his/her personality and beauty in a hand-drawn keepsake portrait. Your portrait can be a dog, cat, horse, any pet! The pictures shown on this listing are examples of the kind of portrait that I will create for you. Simply convo me a clear photo as a .jpg and I will begin your custom portrait. The process usually takes between 3 to 5 weeks before your portrait is ready to ship to you. During that time, I will periodically email you a snapshot of your portrait-in-progress for your approval. I want you to be involved in this process! ****Please note, I accept portrait orders on a first-come/first-serve basis. If you need your portrait as a gift by a certain date, please convo me! Your portrait will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing envelope via US First Class. A note from a recipient of one of my pet portraits: "My family gave me the drawing you did of Ollie on Friday and I wanted to reach out and let you know how beautiful and special it was to me. I actually broke down in tears when I opened it! It still overwhelms me when I look at it. You really captured the look in his eyes. I call that look "sincere eyes" and it's the look Ollie gives when he wants something (usually food). It's hard to think you did that just from a photo. Anyway, thank you so much for the time and dedication you put into this. I will treasure it always. - L" A few of my most recent reviews from customers who have commissioned portraits from me: “This is my second pet portrait done by Carla and it is as stunning and realistic as the first. You will be happy you chose this talented artist for your pet portrait. Carla keeps in constant contact with you and sends you progress pictures of the work. She is happy to make the changes requested. I have plans to order a 3rd portrait from Carla for a gift for someone special.” “One of the best things I've ordered on Etsy. The drawing of my daughter's bengal cat is amazing! It looks exactly like her Mya. It was done quickly and I loved getting the progress drawings every few days. We just gave it to my daughter today for her birthday and she absolutely LOVED it!! Thank you so much! I will be contacting you soon to get drawings of my dogs” “I could not recommend Carla more highly - and already have to many friends. She is super professional, timely, and of course, extremely talented. I loved being kept in the loop of the process. Amazing work!” “Carla did an absolutely beautiful job on the custom portrait of my chocolate lab. Carla was terrific throughout the process and sent update pictures along the way. I am blown away at how closely it matches the photo I sent. She truly captured my dog's happy spirit! Thank you SO much, Carla!!” “This portrait came out great! Carla really captured the detail in the picture I sent her of our dog! She has amazing talent and was very good about updating me on her progress. I would highly recommend this shop to other people!” “Carla has captured not only the outer beauty of my girls, she's captured their very essence. I absolutely love it, what a talent to be able to provide such treasured memories. Thank you so very much!” “This was a gift for my husband that was so well done it brought my husband to tears. I cannot thank Carla enough for the wonderful job she did.” “unbelievable! My girl looks so beautiful and it feels like she is home again. My friends cannot believe it is a drawing, it is that perfect!” **The watermark on the portraits you see here does not appear on the original. Listing image is an example only.
