Styles & Backgrounds

Digital Painting Styles

Currently I am offering the following styles with more selections with examples coming in the future:

Digital Charcoal/Pastel

  • It has a sharper "drawn" style to it. With more sketchy lines and less blurred blending.

Digital Oil Painting

  • This style has the most brush strokes and "muddy" blending.

Digital Water Color/Pencil

  • This is the style I have less experience with but the color transitions have more bleed effects with pencil sketch lines and detailing. Examples coming soon. 

Background Styles

If there is no preference for a color I will choose a complimentary color pallet for your pets portrait. There will be gradating of that color with a lighter hue. The lighter color side being on the side of the painting with the more direct light source.

Style choices are the following:

Cloudy Blend

  • Gives that natural background look

Flat Brush strokes

  • A traditional looking background that I use for most of my traditional paintings.

Grunge Brush

  • Has beautiful blending and color variation while having a traditional art feel.

Pastel POP art

  • Bright complimentary colors that blend into your pet giving it a super stylish look.
