Are you're interested in commissioning your dog(s) and you're looking for some information on how to get yours drawn? You've come to the right place! Below you'll find an overview of my drawing techniques and ordering options. If you have some questions, please feel free to contact me. :)

process

Discussing style and options

Please let me know which technique and options you have chosen. Feel free to reference existing illustrations I made before. This makes it easier for me to know what you like!

Images to draw from

I especially like to draw from images taken from unusual angles. I love snapshots of dogs showing their natural behaviour rather than a staged portrait. However, I'm totally fine drawing from your favourite portrait! Just send me as many photos of your dog(s) as you like. :)

Finishing

Finishing your portrait usually takes up to one week. When you're happy with what came out once I'm done, I will try to send it to you as quickly as possible.

styles and pricing

Illustration

Illustrations make up almost all of my work, as i started my project just doing these. My illustrations are drawn by hand on paper, the coloring however, happens digitally. They may vary in coloring, contrast etc - and in the end, you can get a print on beautiful, high quality Munken Cream Paper.

Available Sizes
A3: 29.7 x 42.0cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches
A4: 21.0 x 29.7cm, 8.27 x 11.69 inches

Pricing
An illustration of 1 dog varies between 140 Euro and 190 Euro depending on how much time i have to spend drawing. Any additional dog in the same illustration will increase the price by 30%.

Painting

Dog paintings are done on wooden panels using mixed media such as acrylics, oil pastels, pencils and oil. They can be painted in much larger dimension than Illustrations. As there is no digital workflow involved during the process, paintings are unique originals. :)

Available Sizes
Wooden panels can start from an edge length of 30 cm, 11 inches to a maximum size of 120cm x 85 cm, 47 x 33 inches. In between these dimensions, you're free to pick your size.

Pricing
Paintings start at a price of 250 Euro. Depending on which size you want, the price can go up to 750 Euro. Any additional dog in the same painting will increase the price by 30%.

Etching

Dog etchings are my new favourite technique! Etchings are all originals and unique! It's a very special technique for me and definitely my favourite one!

Available Sizes

A4: 21.0 x 29.7cm, 8.27 x 11.69 inches

options and shipping

Digital File of Illustration

The easiest and fastest way to get your illustration is by receiving it in a PDF file sent to you via e-mail. Of course there are no additional shipping and material costs occuring using this option. Of course you can print it as often as you want - as long as it is for personal use only. :)

Print of Illustration

The most convenient way of receiving your drawing is by mail. I will print it on beautiful, high quality Munken Cream Paper as often as you wish, sign it and send it in a safe shipping tube. 5 Euro shipping worldwide (including one print). You will also get the digital file via e-mail which you can print for personal use.

Etchings can also be sent via mail!

Framed Print or Etching / Painting

If you wish to have your printed Illustration framed, i'll choose a fitting frame with you and send the framed drawing directly to you. Frame and shipping costs will have to be discussed as they vary due to different sizes.

Paintings are not framed, due to their thickness. Depending on how big the wooden panel is, shipping prices have to be discussed.
