MIMICKING THE COLOR
OF THEIR FUR
Sid is one of the sweetest
most loving beings we've ever met. He has been an amazing comfort through some really tough times for both of us. Just a beautiful kind soul.
He Loves Scritches
on his cheeks, cardboard boxes, and head bonks with his favorite humans. He likes to eat hair, and hulks out right before feeding time.
He is the messiest eater
flinging wet food on everything in close (or not so close)proximity. He loves to reach his arm out and pull your hand back to his cheeks if he needs more scritches.
He also has no qualms
about smacking chips, popcorn or pretzels out of your hand. He is very inquisitive and many of his meows are clearly questions.
A quick study was done to capture some of Sid’s qualities. I used these core ideas as inspiration: • Moving Tribute • Reaching arm out • Inquisitive • Tabby color (And yes, they were indeed drawn on Post Its!)
I used as much of the image and video references to stay true to Sid’s features. I had to juxtapose different images even, and draw them out, to capture a look and specific posture.
This is the second sketch I made, refining Sid's features now to get a better sense of how the final image would look.
This sequence not only captures his personality but animates his outstanding characteristics as well, through your eyes. Quickly dart your eye from one image to the next.
The painting begins. Because these poses were imagined, each pose was carefully painted, using whatever images I had, to stay true to the patterns of his fur.
YOUR PURRTRAIT PACKAGE INCLUDES:
ORIGINAL ART (6"x16" painting)
If you've always wanted to own stylish art to hang on your
walls, why not take it a step further and make it more meaningful by having it in the image of your pets?
It's a great way to show how much of a part of your life they really are.
STORY OF YOUR PURRTRAIT
Add an extra touch, with a complimentary, full color, hard copy of the making behind your Pawtrait. It details how it all started & a behind-the-scenes look of your painting in progress.
It's truly unlike any other, chronicling the moments that make this memory even more special to look back on.
CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
Your pawtrait is original art and it will come with a certificate that records its provenance. It proves that the piece of art is genuine, verifies its quality and authenticates your ownership of it.
READY TO GIFT
I put special attention to every aspect of the Pawtrait, creating the best experience from its reception to its unveiling. Your Pawtrait will come wrapped and wax-sealed.
All you need is a card and it's ready to be gifted.
Chad is deeply touched by the meaningfulness of the tribute for Sid. He also loves your interpretation of Sid’s personality, and so do I. Thank you again for making this happen and putting such care and thoughtfulness into it.
Taking people on a journey through some of your processes, from inception to completion (and with the small faded story portrait painting images on each card), definitely ups the wow factor! Plus, the neat in-process sketches you posted on insta are a great way to involve folks in how a project took shape/was formed. Purrtraits really is a magical offering and I’m so glad this worked out!
I cannot produce sufficient words to express what the gift means. The care and tenderness that you put into the work are only equaled by the skill and talent that you displayed in its creation.
From the style to color selection, to the interesting and unique format, to the capturing of Sid's mannerisms and personality...It's just too much. All that to say, Thank You.
