****PLEASE NOTE: Watercolor Portraits ordered NOW, at this price, will be placed at the bottom of the custom order queue, and as such, may not be delivered for up to 3 months. If you place your order NOW you are agreeing to a delivery date of December 20, 2016, at the latest. It is very possible your piece will be done sooner, but I can't guarantee that. As a special thank you for placing your order now, and allowing me time to create something so special for you at a reasonable pace, you can take advantage of this limited time reduced cost (these pieces are typically $80-100+) ****

Celebrate your love of the happiest place on earth with your own custom painted portrait.

These pieces are hand painted & one of a kind and will be made to order.

Custom portraits are a great way to commemorate a trip, a family reunion, destination wedding or magical birthday. They're also the perfect way to merge multiple elements of the fandom into one piece.

This listing is for a SINGLE PORTRAIT, with NO BACKGROUND. If you are interested in a Family Portrait, with multiple figures, there is a listing for that (yay!). If you would like a single portrait with a background painted as well, please contact me to arrange that (additional fees will apply).

To order, you will need to provide The Artist with the following:

1.) Photographs of the person you want depicted in your portrait. I will be taking those images and re-working them as caricatures in my style (if you are interested in something more realistic, please contact me first, so we can discuss your options! an additional fee may apply). I'll need pictures of any elements you need to be depicted in a specific way-- for example, if you normally don't wear glasses, but the best photo you have of your favorite hairstyle was also taken on a day you were wearing glasses, send me both photos and be sure to indicate which one is to be used for which attributes.  

2.) Clothing details : The figure in your portrait will need to be clothed (that goes without saying, I assume)... So, you'll either need to send me images of your favorite outfit, or if its a wedding portrait and you want your wedding dress depicted, I'll obviously need images of that. OR, you can tell me (as you see in this sample portrait), what some of your favorite things are; I can build your body out of those items. This is a great option for folks looking to add extra whimsy to their portraits!

3.) Special object: Your portrait will be able to hold 1 or 2 (and possibly up to 3, depending on what they are) special objects. This could be a beloved stuffed animal, favorite food, a family pet... Let me know what you'd like to be holding in front of you!

4.) LIKES! & Dislikes! Please let me know in advance if there is anything you HAVE to have in your portrait. And also, if there is anything you DONT want depicted (Example: my hair HAS to be in braids and I always wear a blue ribbon on them; I HATE the color pink, so please don't put include it in my clothing).  

Product Details:
The painting will be produced in watercolor, gouache and colored pencil (as seen in the sample image). The final image size will be 5x7, and it will include only 1 figure. If you are interested in a different sized image or need a different number of figures, please contact me!  

The price of this listing includes:
* 1 sketch (subject to your approval-- you will be emailed a copy of the sketch to approve. If there are any changes you'd like to see made, you will be asked to state those at that time).
* 1 round of revisions (I will take the feedback I get from you and I will revise the sketch and send you a copy of that new version).
* 1 final painting (the piece will ship flat, in a rigid mailer, sandwiched between cardboard flats. It will not be matted or framed.)

PLEASE NOTE-- If after the first round of revisions, there are NEW changes you want made, you will be charged $20 per new sketch. (This doesn't include any changes you request that I might overlook-- its very unlikely that that would happen, but if, for some reason, you ask for a change and I don't make it AND don't acknowledge why it wasn't made you will
not be charged for an additional revision).

The work will be signed & dated. The price includes the cost of the painting and the materials and labor to produce this original, custom piece for you. Your piece will be shipping Priority Mail with tracking. You can purchase Insurance for an additional fee if you would like (please let me know this in advance so I can get you the price quote from the USPS for your order).

Artist's Rights to Reproduction:
Before your piece ships, I will photograph it so I can use it in my portfolio & to help others see examples of options in the future. If for some reason you do not want your piece to be shared (I will never share your name or personal information), please let me know in advance.

Turnaround Time:
During this pre-order period, please allow up to 3 months for delivery. Once the pre-order period is over/ orders are cut off, you would normally want to allow 6 weeks for delivery. If you are planning for an event coming up, and have a deadline for delivery, I will definitely try to accommodate your order. There may be a rush fee, if meeting your deadline requires me to deviate from the order queue-- but email me in advance to check. You may get lucky and catch me between orders!
