Tailor made Pet Painting Photo Variety Tips

From Arcanum

Coming up with a photo for custom pet paintings can be hard, to say the least. After all, which of your favorite images will probably reveal your dog or cat in the best possible light? Which picture is going to show the real personality of your best pal?

While some people know, with no need to take into account it, which photograph is the one they want, some individuals don't. Thus, it is helpful to have a lot of images for the artist to inspect. In an extreme situation the artist can draw from a variety of pics to 'compile' or come up with custom pet portraits.

The first rule when choosing an image for an artist to work from, then, is never throw away an old Kodak of your pet. And, make sure you have the complete selection readily available for the artist to use. Even an old pet drawing your child might have made might have some use to the painter.

This rule, of not throwing out any photograph, pertains to every image you might possess. Okay, custom pet photo is probably not fantastic in one pic, however the pose might be great. And that means you pick a good pose, and use the fur shading from another jpeg.

Among the things an artist will always look for is if the eyes are clean and clear. A far away and fuzzy shot may not show perfectly, crisp eyes, but another photo might do the trick. This is the classic case of two images being brought together to help make the perfect blend which results in the best possible painting of your buddy.

Here are a few things I have found useful over my years of painting. An image of a pet with a son or daughter in it...it is possible to 'delete' the child and focus on that loving try your cat or dog's eyes. Or, a distant photo, when zoomed and cropped for a detailed up, might reveal enough detail for the artist.

Another thing that frequently comes up can be an off center image. With today's wonderful computers you can easily center and focus. This makes an image that the owner may not think useful to already have extreme value.

To bring this at the mercy of a close, look for the very best picture you can. If you don't have one which displays your furry pal in the best way, select a couple shots and send them along to the artist. And, most significant, always send copies, don't send the original image for the painter to make your custom pet paintings with.
