When you are hiring someone for any commission-based work, there always some questions that arose. Many pet owners who want to have the unique pet portrait of their pets always have some questions in their minds. Here we are going to answer the questions of yours in the best possible way.
How much do pet portraits cost?
The cost of pet portraits will vary significantly depending on what style you prefer, the size and how experienced the artist is. Digital pet portraits are likely to be the least expensive as they require less time and materials, and the final product might be a digital file with which you can choose to print yourself or have printed professionally at an additional cost. Additionally, if you are working with a modest budget, consider finding an emerging artist or art student who is building their portfolio that may be willing to work for greatly discounted costs. Even with experienced artists, there isn’t a rhyme or reason to the price ranges you may encounter. It’s highly personal to the artist and pricing is often determined by their unique economic circumstances.
How long do pet portraits take to complete?
The time it takes for pet portraits also varies greatly on the type of portrait you choose and the demand for the artist producing it. This is an important consideration in selecting a pet portrait artist if you are planning the commissioned painting as a gift for a special occasion like Christmas or a birthday. While the project itself may only take several hours or days to complete, portrait artists may already have several orders they are working on that must be completed before yours.
Additionally, not all artists work full-time making art. Many may have full-time jobs and must create their artwork in their free time, limiting the volume of work they can complete on short notice. Finally, commissioned artwork can be demanding for the artist, and may conflict with their innate need to create unique and original work without any creative requirements, so many will only take art commissions during specific periods, so they can reserve other time for focusing on their artwork for a gallery exhibit, art shows. So as soon as you think you might be interested in a commissioned pet portrait, begin your research to select an artist that can work within your time frame.
Can I trust a pet portrait artist I find on the Internet?
If you are researching pet portrait artists to work with, you may be searching through the internet to find examples of their work, pricing, and contact information. It can be worrisome to work with a stranger over the Internet, especially if a deposit is required to secure the art commission order which is very common practice. Here are some easy ways to gain peace of mind about who you are considering hiring for your pet portrait commission:
· Follow the artist on all the social media pages to see the regular activity on the page and the customer’s reviews.
· Ask the artist for their portfolio or recent works
· Pay only through PayPal or credit cards, so you can dispute the payment. PayPal and credit card companies usually offer buyer protection and will help fight fraudulent charges.
