No, the pet/human DO NOT need to be physically present. We will only require photos of the pet/human which you will like to paint. So it's much more convenient!
You'll need to provide a high-quality, clear photo of your pet, preferably in natural lighting and from a frontal or slightly angled perspective. The better the photo, the better the likeness in the final artwork. See Image Guideline for detailed requirements and examples!
This varies from artist to artist and may depend on their workload at the time of your order. Typically, you can expect a turnaround time of anywhere from 1-4 weeks.
Common formats include JPEG, PNG, or PDF. We also offer the option to have the portrait printed and shipped to you. Find out more here: Photo Canvas Prints
You can use your digital pet portrait as a profile picture on social media, print it out and frame it for display, or use it as part of a memorial for a pet who has passed away.
