Pet Portrait Pencil Sketches By International Pet Art Award Winning Artist Eric Melton
100% Real Hand Drawn traditional pet portraits. No digital image manipulation. REAL HAND DRAWN ART.
Working from your quality clear photos I can create the perfect gift or memorial of your fur babies.
I can work in black and white, partial, or full color.
As a lifetime artist I have always looked for subjects that inspires and motivates me to create more art. I have found my passion and calling in the form of animal art. There are just too many wonderful things about animals and their meaning to us to put into words, so I choose to do it through my art. I strive to capture emotion, love, and also speak to the human condition though the eyes of our furry, feathered, and even scaled companions.
Must Love Dogs Gift Certificates available. Contact to purchase.

Commissioning work is a very individual process and therefore I will discuss your requirements and provide a quote before starting your artwork. Pricing is subject to change depending on complexity, reference requirements or drawings of more than one subject. I do not work any smaller than 8.5×11
