Seeking Traditional/Digital Artist for Holiday Gift

CSPhotoSyracuse Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

I am seeking an artist to hire for a Christmas Gift for my Fiance. I would like a "Family Portrait" of Myself, My Fiance, and my dog. Im not sure what style i would like - Either Traditional Art or Digital is fine. Must be High Quality as i will be printing it as an 11x14

Would like to keep the price UNDER $25

Please comment here with an example of your work, and a price, i will contact you if i am interested!

I will pay via Paypal after piece is complete (or we can work something else out.)

NOTE: we are a lesbian couple. Must be comfortable with drawing us. Thank you!

Hello, I am interested in doing this piece for $25. Please look through my gallery to see if my stuff is up to snuff. :)

For the price you ask I hope you're okay with a beginner artist?
Portraits I made: (the photos of the portraits are a bit edited with computer)
-I could draw (quite) realistic traditional b/w,
-on average size drawing paper
-I can take a photo up to 7 megapixels.

Quality depends on the photo you send me and the time I have to draw it.
I'm okay with 20 dollars:) But that includes there's a risk i'll totally fail drawing it, when of course you won't pay anything.
I have nothing against lesbians but no ''mature content'' please..

Hello. I am a realistic portrait artist. I can give you a traditional hand drawn pencil or pastel family portrait. For an 11x14 pencil I charge $60 and pastel I charge $75. I have lower prices on my site too for an 8x10 starting at $40. If you are interested let me know! Thanks.

Sounds great :meow: really sweet!
Please check out my gallery or Tumblr :iconilikeitplz:

Here's a few examples ~

$25 would be a standard price for 3 characters and a background. But if you want a simple background it will be a bit cheaper

I agree with some people here, for what you are asking (more so because you are asking high quality) I believe 25$ is way too low.
If you are interested in a great artist, I believe the price for something like that will start at 250$-300$ at least.

However, it's gonna be worth it.

This is a wedding gift he made for a friend of his, for example.

And some others of his work -

Thanks for your time!

For $20-$25, I'll do it for you. :) I have a range of styles I can achieve and am surely interested in this job! :D

As all the other artists around said, the budget is way too low.Something with high quality, full color that is realistic too and includes 3 figures needs time to happen. If you need a traditional piece you should understand that the materials and shipping have a price of their own.
Now cause your idea for a gift like this is a good one, if you would like to go a little up with the price, for 40 USD i can make a quality pencil drawing /in black and white/. On paper.
Here some samples of my pencil work:

Thank you both very much for your comments, i understand that it is a very low budget. Unfortunetly my Fiance is struggling with MS and most of our funds go towards her medical bills. I have had a couple excellent artists message me already and i look forward to seeing examples of others work. :)
LucidCreations Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I mean no offense, but artists, being that they do art for a living, also have to pay medical bills and afford stuff like that. It's not a hobby for most and that kind of pay is really low for a custom piece of art.

On that note, though, I hope you find someone who has some spare time and is willing to help you. =)
kaiverta Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I know how that is. My mom has advanced AS and medical bills are a killer - but you pay them because you have to, because you love your family members and they need medicine.

Good luck again. :)

I really would like to help but your budget is extremely low, especially considering its during the holiday rush.
You're asking for 2 people + a dog, even if we exclude the dog you're asking for someone to draw you guys for 12.50 a person...

You won't find many decent artists willing to work for that much.. you're pretty much asking people to work for a few dollars per hour.

Good luck nonetheless though!
kaiverta Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Oh, I wish I could, but $25 is too low for what you're asking (for me, anyway).

Good luck with your artist search, though. There are plenty here. :)
