After Your Purchase
After your have purchased a commission slot, I will need you to send me some information via email.
Please let me know what bird you would like me to make. If you have a reference picture please send this through too (for example, this could be of a family pet or a picture of a bird you like). If sending through photos, please take note of the photo guidelines written below. I am happy to find my own references if you would just like to pick a bird and let me do the rest!
-Please provide one close, un-cropped photograph of your bird. Profile shots are a good option as they show off the beak and the feather variations throughout the face and back of the head.
-Photographs cannot be blurry and need to show as much detail as possible. The more detail I can see, the more I can put in to your portrait.
-If possible, have the photo taken at eye level. This is much more complimentary to the portrait.
-If possible, have the photo taken in natural sunlight without flash. Try to avoid having any shadows or harsh highlights on the face.
-Additional photos may be requested for colour referencing.
I will try my absolute best to work with the photo you provide. If for any reason the photo is unsuitable, I will kindly ask for a new one to be sent. Please understand that a good photo is very important if you want your portrait to be the best it can be!
