Interested in a personalized portrait? Great! If you want to commission a piece please read over the rest of the information to make sure it is something you are truly invested in. There’s a lot of time and energy that goes into creating each and every piece for a unique finished product.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING AND UNDERSTAND WHAT BUYING A PERSONALIZED PIECE ENTAILS! THANK YOU!!!!

★☆ Pricing and Time ☆★ 

I work on a first come first serve basis. My rate starts at $22 an hour and a single pet portrait can run anywhere from about 4-8 hours. Depending on the amount of detail (items, backgrounds, extra pets, etc) the time may run longer or shorter. For example, a full body with a specific detailed background will most likely run about 16 hours ($352) while a single pet with a simple background will most likely take 6 hours ($132). A simple headshot will cost about $60-$90. I can estimate how much the finished piece will cost, and will work very hard to keep it at that price. As the artist, it is part of my job to offer near estimates and if the time runs too far over said estimate, I will stop the meter but finish the portrait. If you decide to add on or make big changes that were not mentioned beforehand, I will tack on extra time and alert you before starting.
Turn around time from accepting the deposit and receiving useable images is usually very quick. I can usually finish a piece by the next day or two if my queue is short. If there is a number of pets I must get through though, the wait can increase to about a week or so. * * * If there is a certain deadline and you need a rush order please let me know in advance. * * * Rush orders will cost an extra $70.

★☆ Things to Consider ☆★

Each pet is unique and has their own personality, which usually comes out on its own when I am working. I spend hours putting down multiple layers and details to create a desired overall look, and it is often tiring (mentally and physically). If you find my prices are too high for you please know that I do this because I love what I do and put a lot of effort into it. I am willing to work within your budget but please note that your own customized artwork the only one of its kind.

 

★☆ Buying Through Etsy ☆★

If you have an account on Etsy and would like a simple piece, you may message me over Etsy messages. Etsy Store. Has basic options and a set price (if you are looking for a complex piece with lots of specifics and add ons, you will have to paypal the extra cost (please read pricing).

I intend to add on print options and full body eventually, but for now I only have digital portraits listed.

Once you choose your item follow these steps..

  1. Add item to cart
  2. On the checkout page, please post in the ‘notes to seller’ for color schemes you like and or dislike (example: Love pastel cool colors with a hint of pink, Please use sharp and bright neon reds and purple, I dislike the color lime green so please avoid, I’d like a soft and feminine color scheme, etc ).
  3.  Send a good reference photo (or a few) to me by ‘Contacting Seller’. Make sure the photo(s) clearly show markings/features and are not blurry. Please also include an email address to send proofs too.

 

★☆ Buying Direct Through Email ☆★

You will be asked for a high res or very detailed photo via Email as well as a deposit upfront (USD, paypal). If the photo is not of good quality I can still create an a portrait but might have to tack on some time, as I will have to make up the detail myself.
You will have the option of digital pdfs of head shot, full body or prints of head shot or full body. The prices will differ based on your selection (please read pricing section).
I will also ask that you choose a color palette that you like, or colors that you dislike. If you have no preference, please state so and I will take care of it. Once you have all of this in mind you will email me at StarMandaArt@gmail.com We will discuss what the image will entail and I will give you a price.
