I offer custom cartoon family portrait paintings, drawn and painted by hand and delivered digitally to my patrons. Print-on-demand service is available separately.
The style of my personalized cartoon portrait drawings is designed with families in mind. It's the ultimate gift for all occasions and it is perfect as a present for couples, kids and parents in birthdays, parties, weddings and more.
Below are the frequently asked questions I receive for this service. If you have some other question, please contact me.
I WANT MY ART PIECE IN ANOTHER SIZE/ASPECT RATIO
Okay. The 'width' of the artwork is our reference and the maximum width possible is 150 centimeters.
If you're looking for a certain size that's not listed, select the one that's just below it in 'width' and tell me your custom dimensions in your comments.
For instance, if you're looking for an 80x80 cm painting, select the 75x75 cm option.
Another example, if you're looking for a 60x40 cm painting, select the 50x50 cm option.
And so on.
HOW CAN I SHARE MY REFERENCE PHOTOS FOR THE PORTRAIT DRAWING?
After you complete the checkout process, you'll receive a confirmation email that will ask you to share the reference photos.
The best reference photos are the ones that:
- Show the people in different positions and from different angles,
- Show full-body shots and closeups,
- Show height differences between the different figures,
- Show clothes reference,
- Show hobbies if convenient,
- You got the idea!
You may share the photos by email or upload them to Alhyari Art's File Sharing Portal (sign up required).
Note: In the Order Notes, you may specify the eye and hair colors, as these features often do not show correctly in photos.
WHAT ARE THE TECHNICAL SPECS OF THE ARTWORKS?
Color Profile: RGB (CMYK is available upon request).
DPI: 300 DPI up to 60 cm (width) and down until 100 DPI for 150 cm (width). I'll always use the maximum DPI possible as the dimensions increase.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DELIVER THE ARTWORK?
The basic option (one figure, no background) will be delivered in 24 hours.
The other options need more time. The maximum is 14 days.
If you want faster delivery, please mention it in the Order Notes section. Rush fee charges (up to 15%) may apply.
WILL I GET A PRINTED COPY?
The quoted price is for the digital artwork only.
For printing and framing, please contact me to support.
I WANT MORE THAN ONE PERSON IN THE PAINTING WITH A SPECIAL BACKGROUND.
This art commission online service is tailored for personalized gifts like: custom family caricature paintings, custom couple cartoon paintings, and custom caricature portrait drawings for indivisuals.
You can specify the number of people in the painting by selecting the option from the drop down menu. The same applies for special backgrounds.
Just describe your special requests and instructions in the Order Notes section, and remember to share all the reference photos by email after checkout.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 'SIMPLE' AND 'DETAILED' BACKGROUNDS?
Below are the guidelines.
SIMPLE BACKGROUNDS: a simple background provides context to the painting without drawing attention away from the main subject. A simple background can not include detailed drawings but may include patterns.
DETAILED BACKGROUNDS: a detailed background normally covers the whole canvas and is full of small and big details you want to include. Example: background photo reference.
WHY THE PRICE IS HIGHER IF I DON'T WANT YOU TO SHOWCASE THE ARTWORK ON YOUR PORTFOLIO?
As an artist, I'd like to keep the full copyrights of my artworks. I want to be able to use them in my art books and online for promoting my work.
If the client wishes that I don't keep or use the finished art piece, they are in fact asking to own its exclusive rights, and this -by definition- is more expensive.
However, in both cases:
- I have to be credited (as the artist) for the artwork wherever it's showcased.
- The artwork cannot be used commercially. (For commercial projects, please fill in the quote form and I'll be glad to send you a proposal.)
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE ARTWORK?
You won't :)
However, we should work together to avoid such a situation. For this I wish you describe your request in full details under the Order Notes section. If you forget something, you may also write to me by email when you share the references. If something is not clear to me, I'll ask you before beginning.
And if you want something changed after the artwork is delivered, I allow one round of revisions. This means you may send me up to 5 minor changes in one email, and I'll do them.
The portrait painting service is custom and non-refundable. Returns, exchanges or cancellations are not allowed.
I'D LIKE TO ORDER A CUSTOM CARTOON PAINTING, BUT I'M ON A SMALLER BUDGET

CAN I PAY BY CREDIT CARD? (I DON'T HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT)
If you create a PayPal account, you can actually pay using your credit card. PayPal also offers you buyer protection.
For clients who don't have a PayPal account, credit card payment is accepted through the website, here. The portal accepts all types of credit card brands, including the major names like Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.
If you go with this option, please select Manual Payment, finish with the check out process, pay through the credit card payment page, then send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org to inform that the payment has been done.
I will acknowledge the payment once received and send you a receipt.
