Custom Exotic Pet & Wildlife Art
Painting of your lizard, frog, snake, turtle, or other exotic pet - or your favorite wild animal. Portraits can be formal and traditional, casual, or as over-the-top as you prefer.
BASE RATES: Custom orders are a minimum $100 project budget. For a single animal, plain background, unframed flat panel or 3/4" cradled panel, the following provides a ballpark idea of cost, but each project is individually based on your animal's color/pattern, photo quality if using your images for a portrait, and other variables. 5x5, 5x7 or 4x8 $100 /// 8x8, 8x10 or 6x12 $200 /// 9x12 $250 /// 11x14 or 12x12 $300 /// larger sizes available
OPTIONS: Details make all the difference! Request ornate backgrounds, framing, other sizes, or even embellishments like gold halo / crown / sacred heart.
* Email artist Ashley Dietrich at firstname.lastname@example.org with your budget and ideas of how you'd like your piece to look - including size range, background, framing, etc. Also send photos if it's a pet portrait. Feel free to include examples of what you like.
* Project details will be discussed, and a sketch created.
* Upon approval of the sketch, a 50% deposit listing will be set up for you to purchase (website accepts credit cards or paypal).
* Usually within a week, you'll receive photos of the nearly-complete painting before the final details are added. At this point, minor alterations can be made - but major changes may increase the cost of your project.
* Upon your approval of the finished painting, the 50% balance listing will be set up for you to purchase, then the painting will be varnished and shipped.
