PET DRAWINGS – TYPES

Pet Pencil Drawings By Peter Bamber

If you have a pet, no matter whether its a dog, cat or gerbil, you will share special moments with it. Your pet may have a particular look that melts your heart, or you may have amazing memories of some of the great places you used to visit together. Why not capture that memory in a bespoke pet drawing that you can keep forever.

All my pet portraits are extremely detailed and have a photo realistic finish to capture the essence of your pets true character. My pet portraits can be created for you in either black and white or full colour, in sizes ranging from 6×8 through to 16×24 and can be supplied mounted and framed if required.

    PET DRAWINGS OF EVERY KIND

     

    DOG PENCIL DRAWINGS

    This is one of my most regularly requested types of pet portrait, which is no surprise as there is nearly 10 million dog owners in the UK alone. Your dog drawing can be simply a close up head shot, a full body drawing or even an action shot of it leaping or playing with its favourite toy. Alternatively you may have a special photo of your pet you would like me to recreate for you, just get in touch I will be happy to talk through your ideas with you. GET IN TOUCH WITH THE ARTIST.

    CAT PENCIL DRAWINGS

    Our feline friends, again another very popular pet drawing I am regularly asked for. From a cats beautiful fur to its stunning wide eyes, I can capture every detail and bring it to life on paper, creating you a stunning cat portrait your can treasure forever. The big difference with a cat drawing from most other pet drawings, is their eyes, as they have quite large eyes, the drawing instantly comes alive when the eyes are complete. The characteristics and shape of cats faces are generally quite similar, its the subtle differences I can capture in your drawing that will make your cat drawing individual with a photorealistic likeness to your adored feline friend.

    HORSE PENCIL DRAWINGS

    Every horse portrait I do is bespoke and completely original, created by myself. You may have the perfect photograph of your pet horse,  but you may want a few adjustments making, like the tack removing or a certain part of the horse portrait emphasising, not a problem. I have worked on many horse portraits over the years, some full figure drawings and some just the head, whatever type of horse portrait you would like I can fulfil your request. The favoured type of horse portrait that I am asked to do is a head shot, this shows the true character of your horse and closes in on a very acute amount of detail giving a very life like finish to the portrait. If your looking for a horse drawing with 2 or more subjects no problem, I am sometimes asked to do a montage of two or three head shots.  This can show multiple angles and looks of your horse, reflecting different aspects of its character and can create a very interesting and beautiful piece of art.

    STYLES OF PET DRAWINGS

    HEAD SHOT

    This is a very popular type of pet portrait, a drawing that focuses on the head and neck, highlighting the detail and character to give a truly stunning piece of artwork. As this is a close up drawing, it will pick up on eye, fur and facial details, giving a truly photo realistic appearance to the pet drawing. See my gallery for inspiration

    FULL BODY SHOT

    For a full body shot of any pet, the artwork size generally needs to be on the larger size, this will allow me to capture enough detail to give a true representation of your pet. You can have a black and white or full colour pet drawing of your pet laid down, leaping in the air, or just sitting looking at the camera adorably, the choice is yours. For a full body shot a lot of people like to have the centre of the artwork with a beautiful full colour drawing, with two smaller detailed drawings in black and white to the left and the right of the image. If you would like to discuss things with me please just give me a call, I will be happy to have a chat. If you’re not sure what the best type of photo would be for me to use for your pet drawing please see the PHOTO GUIDE. 

     

    ACTION SHOT

    An action shot can capture your pets character and fun side in a great way, whether its your cat playing with its toy or your dog leaping through the air for its stick. This style of pet drawing gives a great dynamic and adds life to the subject. The key with the reference for an action shot is to capture the animals detail and not have any blur on the photograph caused by the subjects movement. Most smart phones nowadays have sports modes to reduce blur on moving subjects. If using an SLR camera you will simply just have to have the camera on a very high shutter speed, or you can switch to sports mode on most SLR cameras as well.

     

    HOW MUCH IS A PET DRAWING?

    A pet drawing can range from £90 through to £500 depending on what size and style of pet drawing you would like.
