Cassius by AmandaDrage Cassius by AmandaDrage
I've decided to try my hand at the pet portrait market, seeing as I don't seem to have found the market for my equine art just yet ;)
I am opening 8x10" coloured pencil and pastel portraits on velour paper, priced at 65. This is an example, ready to be framed and displayed at my upcoming show on Saturday, and subsequent shows etc.

Hope you like it :)

Coloured pencil and pastel on velour paper, 8x10".

edit: This is more for getting commissions through my art stalls and shows, of course you can contact me here if you would like one anyway, but this isn't a call to ask you guys to commission me!! I'm just showing you the drawing :)

How long does it take to draw artworks like this? :)

I am terrible at counting :lol: I would estimate around 8-10hours for an 8x10" like this. :)

I love your artwork! This one looks just like my dog Kaly :)
I wish I could draw like you! They really come to life!
I only manage black and whites, but i love drawing...
Especially dogs, cats and horses.

No Problem :) Really? I think dogs are very hard to draw, I don't know why.

They can be, especially the hairy ones. But not as bad as cats... ;)

Good to see you're still into the velour :) Your prices are too low, though! This is absolutely beautiful.
Reply
:iconamandadrage:
AmandaDrage Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013
Yes indeedy :) And yes I agree they are too low, so I decided 65 is an introductory offer. I need to make an ad for it and plaster it round Facebook. ;) They'll be 85 after that!
Glad you like it, thanks!! :)
Also, whereyoubeen?? :XD:

Good plan! Glad to see you're still pursuing your talent ^_^ Oh I've been at university! I'm doing my finals at the moment, so I've been more or less living under a rock. I still draw a bit though - in fact I have a commission to do at the moment :) I've totally lost touch with everyone on DA though! Has lots changed? What's new with you? I guess I should probably read your DA journals!

Ahh awesome, busy times then! Congrats on your commission! Hmm not much has changed, I'm making more headway with art as a career this year so I'm just trying to get as much done as possible and trying to stay awake lol...

Yes! Arctics for the win!
Other dog breeds I like are Huskies, Samoyeds, Tamaskans, Keeshonds, Akitas, Shikokus and Irish Wolfhounds...
