Ordering a custom pet portrait is easy!

1. Send me your favorite pet photo(s), preferably one or more digital photos that show good detail.

2. Decide on a size and color preference. I can help you with this if you’re unsure. Typically I draw on 80# Canson Pure White Artist Series paper. However, for some color portraits I use a toned gray or tan sheet, as it makes whiter animals stand out better on the paper.

3. Confirm your order with a 50% non-refundable deposit; some opt to pay for the entire amount up front which is fine. I accept cash, personal checks payable to “Scott Schiller” or PayPal.

4. Upon receipt of photos and payment, I will begin working on your portrait. Average turnaround time is 3 weeks, a bit longer for color or larger sized projects;  if you need it sooner I will do what I can to rush your order (there may be a rush fee).

5. I keep you informed of every step along the way, and will send you photos of my progress to make sure you like what I’m doing. I appreciate feedback to ensure I am accurately portraying your pet’s unique look; I will do whatever I can to make sure I capture your pet’s likeness.

6. Once completed, I spray it with a protective fixative to prevent smudging and discoloration, package it with care and ship it once your final payment (including shipping charges) is in the mail.

7. Your custom pet portrait will be mailed via UPS, or hand-delivered if you happen to reside near the Greater Milwaukee area.

8. Any questions? Contact me anytime by email or phone, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
