Image Submission Guidelines

Once you order your Splendid Beast, the single most important part of the process will be the pictures you upload.

We base all of our paintings on your images, so it's crucial you send us good ones! 

Look at the diagram below. All of our templates use a forward-facing body. Your pet's head should be in the same position for best results. 

Upload Checklist

Try to follow these guidelines

Take the picture in the daytime with sunlight on the pet's face

Use a smartphone or high-quality digital camera

Ensure the whole face is visible

Make the head angle match the painting

Include images of the pet's body if it's going to be in the painting

Not sure whether your images will work?

Email them to us and we'll let you know.

We often paint portraits of pets that have passed away, so we understand it's not always possible to follow all of the guidelines above.

In many cases, we can still make it work.
