Before I left on vacation earlier this month, I had several requests for custom orders. It seems they always come in groups. I let everyone know they would not be done until I got back from my trip and it all worked out. I completed 3 custom orders this week.
The first sign came out beautifully, but a hair dark. So I tried to lighten it up in the second sign and it came out pretty darn light. I like them both, but somewhere in the middle was what I was shooting for.
And the last custom order was for a guy who called because he wanted an anniversary gift for his girlfriend of a giraffe and a sloth together (pet names). He sent me a link to some artwork he googled. Who knew you could so easily find a cute little drawing of a giraffe and sloth together?? I adjusted the drawing a bit to fit my needs, clarify the faces a little and removed the clothing/glasses on the giraffe. I painted it in my normal way and am very happy with the result. This one was so much fun!
