Default Art for Ada!

Art for Ada.

Ada is a foster we found on the side of the road approximately three weeks ago. Unfortunately, no owners were ever found and Ada needs heartworm treatment and a spay, which will come to about $400-$450 for the HW treatment plus the spay. In order to raise the money, I am selling custom pet and character artwork. Ada is a great young dog who is otherwise healthy and well balanced. She deserves to get a new start at life.

All my art is traditionally done with various mediums and will be shipped to you. I am open to drawing both pet and characters/fantasy art. I really enjoy both types of art and am open to anything you can come up with. However, I won't do realistic human portraits at this time because I just am not skilled enough at them yet.

For $10 donations, you can receive a 9 x 12” inked sketch of your pet done in micron brush pen on bristol paper.


For $20 donation, you will get an inked sketch with some color. These are done with micron pens and derwent watercolor pencils on 9 x 12” bristol.


For $50, you can get one of your choice of the following:

1) A simple pencil sketch. These are done in primarily HB and ebony pencil on 9 x 12” bristol. Pencil is fantastic for capturing detail and texture. It is simply a classic drawing.

ex: Rylie by ~SummerPapillon on deviantART
SummerPapillon's deviantART Gallery

2) A simple charcoal sketch. These are done with General’s vine charcoal and charcoal pencils on 11 x 14” bristol. Charcoal provides a lot of expressive qualities to a piece as well as being able to maintain realism.

Ex: SummerPapillon's deviantART Gallery
Or cartoony type: SummerPapillon's deviantART Gallery

3) A small mixed media painting done on 11 x 14” smooth or textured watercolor paper. These fun paintings are done with microns, watercolors, and prismacolor colored pencils. They provide an illustrative quality to these types of drawings.

4) Or a small colored pencil drawing done with prismacolors on either 9 x 12” bristol or colored paper or parchment (your choice, though I recommend the colored backgrounds personally). These pieces are a bit more cartoony yet still very detailed and beautiful.

Medicine Hat by ~SummerPapillon on deviantART
colored paper: Nyx by ~SummerPapillon on deviantART
bristol: Tosca and Riot by ~SummerPapillon on deviantART

For $100, you will receive a detailed charcoal drawing on illustration board. (I need to measure the board but it’s bigger than 11 x 14). The difference between this and the $50 charcoal sketches is simply time and detail. These are my most detailed, time consuming, and realistic pieces and are very high quality drawings.

I will not require any payment up front until the initial sketch is approved by you. Once you are happy with the sketch, I would ask for at least half the payment at that time. The rest being done on completion. I will send out in progress pics as I work.

When inquiring, please include what type of piece you are interested in as well as reference photos and any specifics you want. They will be first come first serve, though I will probably keep more simple sketches and colors open than the more complex pieces. I will probably only have 3 or 4 of the harder pieces going at once, however if you’re interested still let me know! I will let you know when a spot opens up.

If you have ANY questions, don’t hesitate to ask me. I take paypal and money order.

In the future I am in the process of setting up a website and will be offering my art in the future. However, they will likely be at a slightly higher price than they’re being offered now (to include shipping and materials fees). I will also eventually be offering more complex pieces such as human portraiture, watercolors, and paintings on canvas. I will keep you updated.

If I forgot anything, let me know. I typed this all up once then my internet went down. I hope I covered it all again lol.
