What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

When photographing your pet: Get on their level. Use natural light source if possible. Make sure the subject is in focus. Get as close as you can without cutting off body parts that are desired to be in sketch. When choosing an artist to create your masterpiece, It is important to know the style of work the artist of interest creates. Research the portfolio and style of the artist and decide if you think it's a good fit for your goals. The larger the portfolio, the better idea you'll have of their style. Having much commission experience is beneficial. Ask questions like: What is my goal for the project? What style would suit best? What is my budget? How much commission experience does the artist have? How are payments accepted? Are there shipping/handling costs or other fees and taxes? What is the completion deadline for the project?

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I have a strong attention to detail. I work closely with my clients to create the personalized sketches that they desire. I care not only for my clients, but also their subjects. Please find out more : https://www.sketchesbychaderickeith.com/
