    I see chaz allows postings for dog-related artwork and commissions, right? (I hope so!) If not, please actually let me know and I will take down all this jazz.

    I'm a concept artist and illustrator (environment and character design), in my final year at Calarts, but have been freelancing from private commissions to projects for studios for the past few years. I've gotten interest here and there for a few months in doodling up some pet portraits and caricatures for other owner's dogs and cats, ever since posting a couple of me and my dogs!

    It's always a ton of fun to draw people's beloved puppers and kitters... to loosen up with something adorable away from my actual work-related projects, so... just stating that I am open for all kinds of animal portrait or landscape painting commissions. :D

    If you would like one, please send me some photos of your dog/cat and what they enjoy doing that you would like me to portray, and I'll try my best to express their individual personalities. Or if you'd like the environment paintings with your dog involved, let me know too!

    Here is my display website for all my artwork:
    http://fionahsieh.daportfolio.com/

    Prices will range depending on how many animals requested and what art style you would like! Fun things!

    All pet doodles (like the one below of Rara) are a fixed $30 per animal. :)

    Doodle of my Rara... which started the whole online interest in these

    And my landscape work of Rara and I :)

    Wow! Gorgeous!! That is art that I could see in a museum - for realz. It's so imaginative and playful, and emotional and... it's just beautiful.

    You're seriously underselling yourself.

    I keep staring at your landscapes. :O So jealous that you're at CalArts!

    ... I might need one of those doodles of Tango, the playful style fits his personality very well. Those landscapes are amazing :)

    You already know how crazy I am about your art (like, ridiculously crazy obsessed LOL) and my sister basically thinks you're the coolest person ever. Such an amazing feel to your work that's difficult to describe and rare to find. Can't wait to see more, and still keeping an eye out for those Laika movies :)

    Also - really glad you're here on Chaz!!

    Hahaha yes. My thoughts exactly, but I am shamelessly going to try to take advantage of that and commission Fiona when I have the money.

    Thank you guys so much!
    I'll respond to the PMs when I get back from work in a couple hours. ^-^

    Aw, thanks so much!! Calarts has some pretty great aspects. =)
    heheh I agree that the prices are a little underselling- but I'm happy to draw for cheaper for fellow animal lovers on chaz. :D Outside of Chaz or dog bloggers, ~$50 for the doodles would be ideal enough!

    Bahhhh Grace, you're really too much! Thanks, you and your sis again!
    Hehe, feel free to take advantage! LOLOL

    Psst, I pretty much charge differently depending on who the client is- an individual person/friend or for a studio or business-related. For studios and the like, I currently don't go below $6,000 for a group of 30 storybook illustrations, for example, but I'd prefer $8000. So no worries! Heheh

    (also, is it just me or are my posts not showing up on the thread? o_o)

    Yaaaay!


    Also, I just finished a doodle for blackrose of her dog Cynder. ^^ I guess I'll make a compilation of the doodles for others on my blog under Pet Portraits as well.

    I still charge more than that, and I am in no way as skilled as you! LOL. And that's not me trying to undervalue myself - I have skill - but you have more training and background in art, especially where landscapes and backgrounds are concerned. I'm currently studying perspectives and landscapes as a side education because I suck so hard at them. :rofl1:

    Aw! Maybe I will raise prices... cackles.. xD Most of my audience online isn't dog/pet-oriented for commissions, so I find I need to have a bit of a lower price for them to get enough interest- except for on Chaz! LOL :eek: But maybe that doesn't make sense hahaha

    I mostly freelance for studios for visual development. `u`

    That would be fabulous. `-` I'm excited.

    LOOL yours will be $500... HAHA (jk)

    I just send over HQ image files. =) It can be as large as you want, if you have a specific size you want printed. And I'd love to! Whenever you want. :D
