Who are the best dog portrait artists for hire?

Here is my list of the best dog portrait illustrators:

1. fantuzura – Best custom dog portrait artist

This top rated seller from Russia is arguably the very best pet portrait artist on Fiverr, and a perfect choice for your dog’s portrait. The realism of the portraits is mind-blowing, and as is the detail that’s put into the work. Her work is worth all the cost.

Her reviewers seem to be marvelling at the end-result, and praise her communication, quickness and skill. And her work is not only an accurate portrayal of pets, but also puts on an imaginative spin in the background.

4. tasartir – A Fiverr’s choice artist who makes cute cartoonish dog portraits ($20-$35)

Not all portraits need to be realistic, especially in the age of cameras. Sometimes people may want their pets to be turned into adorable cartoon figures too, for which this Fiverr’s choice artist from the United States is the best choice.

The pet art of tasartir is a creative digital recreation of pet images, and would fit ideas like turning your dog into Krypto the Superdog or something along those lines.

The buyers praise the perfectionism and creativity of her work, and admire her communication and revisions too. Her pet portrait service stands at an average rating of solid 5 stars with 186 total ratings.

How much does a dog portrait cost?

A dog portrait commission may cost between something as low as $5 and at times even something higher than $75 depending on the type of portrait you want, and if it’s painted or digital. The number of pets, and the inclusion of background can also have an effect on the cost.
