Custom Pet Portraits

Commissioned pet portrait 1: Phoebe with her signature head tilt. Isn’t she a cute little angel? Thank you @didel613 for ordering this to surprise Diane. You’re the sweetest friend anyone can ask for.

Clients's note: ''It’s so realistic looking wow, and I can also feel the her staring at me! I hope Diane, Phoebes Mom will love it as much as I do...I think she will. I can’t honestly thank you enough for your willingness to do this, and your time and love you put into it. It really shows!'' - Diane (United States)

Recipient's note: ''A sincere thank you to @didel613 for commissioning this amazing portrait of my sweet Phoebe. I can’t stop looking at it! Also thanks to the artist @dollgift You have perfectly captured her vibe. I am in awe of your talent. Thank you both, from the bottom of my heart.'' Waltersphoebe (United States)

Commissioned pet portrait 2: I waited to share this piece for a long time. It was meant to be a surprise; I wanted the recipient to see it first so as not to ruin their surprise. Custom orders such as this always make me happy knowing that someone cares alot to want to do something special for their loved one. And it was my absolute pleasure they entrusted me to help. For this particular piece, a group of friends decided to come together to comfort a friend - Michelle had lost her beloved dog recently. The best part is, I know some of them had only met through Instagram (one thing I love about social media!). I was touched beyond words by their sweet gesture. Thank you for letting me be a part of this. A special thanks to @didel613 for the correspondence and for making this happen. You guys are amazing. Thank you for letting me know you love the art piece and for the permission to share your photo as well, Michelle - I hope you find some comfort everytime you look at this drawing. Know that you and Peanut are very loved by many friends. @peanut_dachshund. 💜

Recipient's note: ''I got the most beautiful gift today from my amazing friends. I cannot thank y’all enough for coming together to make this gift possible I’ve been looking at this painting for hours you have no idea how much this mean to me. It’s perfect in every way you guys really put the biggest smile on my face today. A big thank you to the artists @dollgift for taking the time to make this for my family and I, You are so talented and I’m so blessed to have one your art pieces. Thank you again to me amazing instagram Family I don’t know what I would do without you! Peanut I hope you can see this beautiful painting from heaven and I hope you makes you happy. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you but now when I see this picture I will smile and remember the memories we made that day.

Lost In Your Eyes

“There might be millions of roses in the whole world, but you’re my only one, unique rose.” - The Little Prince

I did two colour variations and couldn’t decide which one I like more - both colours create a very different mood. Which do you prefer?

Ordering a Custom Illustration

If you would like to order a custom illustration from me but were unsure how it works or what to expect, this post is for you.

For this particular assignment, my client sent me an email enquiry - she wanted an illustration of a childhood memory she had with her dad. She sent me some reference photos along with these keywords to work around - ferris wheel, motorbike, badminton and/or rambutans. After confirmation of order (payment made), I gathered more details from her eg. model of the motorbike, type of house, etc.

I then proceeded to brainstorm some ideas and work on the sketches. My client selected one sketch out of the lot and let me know what she’d liked for me to add or amend.

Here, she'd chosen the 3rd sketch to be worked on. Below was pretty much how it looked with more details added.

My client then requested to have - 1) one of the elements in the background removed to simplify the art piece, 2) Slight changes to the characters' hairstyles, 3) Car plate number to be added.

Final stage - Filling in the colours plus some background colour variations to choose from.

So here you go! This was how the final piece looked (I enlarged the characters to make them stood out more).

Please note that every assignment is unique so the procedures may vary. But rest assure that I will communicate with you closely and guide you through every step - You'll be involved from ideas, concepts, drafts and the colour stages to final proof. The file will only be sent out for printing once I get the green light from you.

For hard copy prints, I use high quality, fade-resistant (archival) printing method so you can expect art museum print quality. Alternatively, you may choose to have the artwork send to you in soft copy or printed on merchandise. There are various packages options to choose from, depending on your need.

The turnaround time for order processing to printing typically takes 2-3 weeks and longer during festive period. A fee will be incurred for urgent orders. Information on shipping cost and duration can be found on our Info page.
