Coming up with a photo for custom pet paintings can be hard, to say minimal. After
Pet Photo blanket , which of your favorite images will reveal your dog or cat in the perfect light? Which picture is going to show the real personality of one’s best pal?
While some people know, without the need to think about it, which photograph may be the one they want, some people don’t. Thus, it is beneficial to have a large number of images for the artist to inspect. In an extreme situation the artist can draw from a number of pics to ‘compile’ or put together custom pet portraits.
The first rule when selecting an image for an artist to work from, then, is never throw away an old Kodak of one’s pet. And, ensure you have the complete selection readily available for the artist to use. Even a vintage pet drawing your child might have made may have some use to the painter.
This rule, of not throwing away any photograph, pertains to every image you might possess. Okay, the fur shading may not be fantastic in one pic, however the pose might be great. Which means you select a good pose, and use the fur shading from another jpeg.
One of the things an artist will always search for is whether the eyes are clean and clear. A far away and fuzzy shot may not show perfectly, crisp eyes, but another photo might do just fine. This is the classic case of two images being brought together to help make the perfect blend which results in the perfect painting of your buddy.
Here are a few things I have found useful over my years of painting. A picture of a pet with a kid in it…you’ll be able to ‘delete’ the child and concentrate on that loving look in 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 is an off center image. With today’s wonderful computers one 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 best picture you can. If you don’t have one which displays your furry pal in the best way, choose 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.
