Flaunt's portrait and photo:


I generally work from one photo, but often use others as a point of reference. For multiple subjects, I can combine separate photos. As I usually don't get to meet the animals I draw, it is important for the photos to be of a high quality and resolution, and for copyright law I require permission from the photographer.

A good quality photo of your subject is required for the commission. I generally work from one main photo, however I do use others as a point of reference, so the more the merrier. It is important the photo be clear and of a decent resolution for the best artistic results. For a small travel fee I also offer my own photography service for the use of artwork reference.

Multiple subjects are welcome within a portrait*, and I can utilise individual photos to a complimentary composition.
*Due to square inch restrictions, A4 size portraits are restricted to two subjects.


Prices are based on paper size. Larger, or custom dimensions are available upon request, however I am unable to do smaller sizes due to the level of detail.
Payment plans are welcomed for the duration of artwork completion. I offer Afterpay on my website, or alternatively a direct deposit can be arranged with an initial 30% deposit.
