Miniature Pet Portraits in Pencil

These detailed graphite pencil portraits are standard ACEO (Art Cards, Editions & Originals) format: always 2.5" x 3.5" (the size of a baseball trading card). Ann began creating ACEOs in late 2006 - they're a collectible art form that started on eBay.

A commissioned ACEO-sized portrait is $60.
A high quality, detailed photo must be provided - digital preferred, but a 5x7 print is acceptable.
Ann will come out to take photos of your pet (if you're in the Sacramento/W Placer County area) for an additional $15. Please note that ACEO commissions are placed on Ann's waiting list along with all other portraits.

Some of the portraits also have a bit of color pencil that was applied to the drawing after the graphite work was finished.

Color correcting scans of graphite pencil drawings is challenging - even though the tones of the images above vary, they're all drawn with the same type of pencil and the tones are very similar from one drawing to the next.
