Default Portrait of your dog

Hi guys,

I posted a pic yesterday that I did of Zorana's dog Leo and people suggested I sell my drawings. I'm not sure about pricing but a couple of people suggested charging minimum wage by the hour, which is 6 something here in the UK. Here are some examples;







You may recognise all these pups from the forum but if you want to see the original photos, just let me know. I posted them in the order I've drawn them because I think there's been definite improvement. In terms of hours, they probably took me around 5, 12 and 16 hours respectively.

If you'd like to have one done of your dog or possibly others pets just send me a PM and we can discuss a price that you think is fair. The more detail there is, e.g. patterned clothing, the longer it will take. Thanks for reading

Sounds great Michele You mentioned postage in the other thread, did you want it printing on something specific or do you just want me to email you the original? That way it doesn't cost postage and you can print it off on whatever you want as many times as you like.

PPPFFFTTTT!! all I do is place already made pics together.... you actually CREATE! the pics....
do you have a job that makes the most of your talent??
if not, you should start digital scrapbooking, there are many great designers that create hand-drawn elements and create digital scrapkits to sell........

You do all the technical stuff too like making things move and blink, I can't do that and your stuff looks really professional. I have wondered about creating crap kits but I have no idea how or where to start. I'm also not great at coming up with stuff of my own, I'm better at copying. And no, I work for Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs working on people's tax files! I'm technically a trained primary teacher and I used to love making displays and resources but there just aren't any jobs.

By the way everyone, I'm not sure what size it can go up to but Joe (JoeandRuth) said he ran it through photoshop and converted into jpeg and was confident it would make a good quality 8x10. That was straight from the photo bucket upload so I would imagine that the original would be a higher resolution. If anyone knows, let me know! I'd be happy to email the original to anyone who ordered one or have it printed off and sent to you

I'm absolutely amazed and laughing all at the same time.

Amazed at the art you've created by you own hand, and lmao that you've "....wondered about creating crap kits but I have no idea how or where to start" ... well that's easy, you simply grab your pooper scooper and start collecting girlfriend
