  • What kind of photo is needed?
    Front-facing, close up-high quality images with good lighting work best! Remember, the more detail in the photo, the better the final portrait will be! If you are not sure, send an email prior to ordering if your photo will work. Keep in mind, the artwork comes out exactly like the photo but in a watercolor style! Feel free to upload a few images and Tiffany will always choose the best one! The level of detail in a photo plays a vital role in creating an exquisite portrait. When it comes to capturing your pet's unique features, such as their expressive eyes, cute nose, and overall facial expression, having a sharp and focused photo is essential. To ensure the best possible outcome for your pet portrait, it is highly recommended to provide a clear and in-focus photo. Unfortunately, working from blurry or unclear photos can limit Tiffany's ability to accurately capture your pet's likeness and expression. So, when selecting a photo for your pet portrait, choose one that showcases the finest details and accurately represents your pet's features. This will ensure that the artist can create a stunning and lifelike portrayal that truly captures your furry friend's essence.

  • Can I have multiple animals in the artwork?
    Yes. Tiffany never charges extra for multiple pets in the same photo. However, more often, it is hard to get two animals sitting side by side. For an additional fee, Tiffany offers an option to "blend" two or three photos into one piece. Take a look at Moxey and Finn, which was created by blending two photos. Moxey was Tiffany's first dog, she got Finn after her passing and combined two photos into one. Notice, how the dogs are sitting in similar positions and are both front-facing, in outdoor lighting. *The most animals one piece of artwork should have is 3 to 4. This keeps the artwork balanced and prevents too much crowding.
