Some of us love pets so much that we are happy to call them part of the family. They are beautiful companions who don't talk but express themselves through actions which makes us develop a deep affection with them. There is no better way to show love than to commission a pet portrait to decorate your walls.
Our nobilified pet portraits gives your beloved furry friend royalty status by adding his face to a painting of a king, queen, princess, Viking, and pirate. The uniqueness of the painting is that it personifies your animal by including a human figure. Besides, it breaks the monotony of painting the whole image of the pet.
If you want to skip the hassle involved in maintaining your pet in a still position for drawing, you can have it done by partnering with the professionals. We offer quality, hand-painted, royalty pet portraits using authentic work materials to ensure we stick to the details in the reference photograph.
Reasons for Commissioning a Pet Portrait
In the past, people used different means to portray and record how different objects or individuals looked like. Commissioning an artist was one of the popular means of expressing your love for a person or thing in a single portrait. Today, most people choose to hire a professional artist to paint their favourite pet, and they do this because of many reasons which include the following:
Love for the Animal
To spend your time and money selecting the appropriate photo for painting and having the final masterpiece on your wall indicates that you're deeply in love with your dog or cat. People go through different situations with their pets and have touching stories to tell. That is why most pet owners decide to have a lasting, hand-painted portrait of their beloved animal. Additionally, the painted piece serves as a reminder of the good times, even after he passes on (of course with a pang of royalty to it).
Gorgeous Interior Décor
When you want to purchase a home, one of the critical factors to consider is the flexibility and versatility of the interior when it comes to decorative features like wall arts and portraits. And while you are at liberty to enter interior décor store and purchase any picture, you can choose to have something out of the ordinary: A painted portrait of your pet. Apart from the fact that you'll have access to original oil paint, having your pet's picture painted on canvas has deeper value than purchasing just any other animal painting from a local store.
A Great Addition to the Family Album
Many families have different paintings and portraits of relatives and family friends from the past. Although you may not be familiar with them, their paintings on the wall bring an emotional connection. Similarly, by having your pet's portrait done, you can make it part of your family album which your son and grandsons will be glad to have.
Technological tools offer great convenience as you can work with all sorts of animal pictures to produce a portrait. However, adding the face of a pet to a royalty painting may pose a challenge even when you use a laser printer. With a commissioned artist, the piece will have a human touch. You'll also find an interesting aspect to the way an artist interprets the artwork.
When is the Right time for a Pet Portrait?
When you want to commission a pet portrait, anytime is a perfect moment for that. Nonetheless, you can hire an artist to do the painting as a gift during Christmas, Valentine's, the pet's birthday or during a special occasion that calls for a special gift to someone. Also, you can present a commissioned pet painting for a friend or relative who has recently lost their pet.
A guide to Commissioning a Pet Portrait
If you are a new-comer in the world of commissioned pet paintings, here is a simple guide to help you achieve the desired final piece.
Select your Preferred Photo
You have the option of browsing through our large selection of paintings, or you can choose your own. If you select to have your own, look for a photo that brings your pet's real character.
Think About the Size
As you ponder on this, you also should consider the space where you'll place it, and how it blends with other decorative features in the room. Remember that the end-piece will be a few inches bigger due to the added frame.
Our rates range from $180-$1,000 depending on the size of the royalty pet portrait you require. We have a consumer-friendly payment policy that offers the convenience of using your credit card, PayPal, or stripe.
Date of Delivery
Once you make an order for a commissioned pet painting, we will send you a photo to approve after 2-2 ½ weeks. The shipment timeframe takes between 5-14 days depending on whether the piece is rolled or framed.
The tiniest player in the current feast of royal wedding pageantry is little Louis Arthur Charles, who has been big news since his name was bestowed on him only a few days ago and who is now the subject of multiple viral stories already. (One of the funniest has since the Harry Potter fansite Pottermore lay claim to him as being "named after" a trio of iconic Weasleys from the universe of the Harry Potter novels.) Little Louis is also a timely reminder of a fine tradition of childrens' royal portraiture which is a vital part of the custom painting galleries of Nobilified. Here, we look at a few favourites.
The occasion of a Royal wedding brings to mind a cultural treasure-trove of royal romance tales. It's a topic that brings together power, pageantry and the most intimate kind of human drama all in one package; a subject that forms the core of a thousand fairy tales and not a few real-life dramas, too. In advance of the upcoming royal wedding, we take a tour through some of the best love stories royals have given rise to on screens both big and small. You'll often find these stories' protagonists in our portrait gallery, too, and excellent subjects for our unique custom paintings.
The British royals may be the biggest proof of our ongoing cultural love affair with royalty, but they're far from the only example. Another show is lighting up the Netflix airwaves today – Medici: Masters of Florence – following the fortunes of a great banking family that eventually became a royal family with ducal titles. The first Medici Duke, one of the popular faces in our photo-to-painting portrait gallery, was Alessandro de'Medici.
With graduation season almost upon us, it's a time to contemplate some artwork that brings to mind the philosopher and the scholar in us all. Today we go by way of a famous sculpture by Rodin called the Thinker, and talk about its connection to the unique pictures-to-painting work of Nobilified.
The adage "everything old is new again" has never been truer than in the internet age. It's one of the facts that makes the Nobilified vision possible, but every once in a while we have a fresh reminder of just how true it is, and of just how many forms that truth can take. Today's reminder is a famous French painter whose career spanned the end of the Bourbon monarchy and the rise of the French Revolution long before we were creating oil paintings from photos.
When we think about Nobilified's vision of picture to canvas painting -- to put people in touch with themselves at their most heroic, their most compelling, their most funny and playful and beautiful -- there are certain particular kinds of art that come to mind.
