Win a gorgeous custom pet portrait by Dafonte Art!!!

Thursday, November 21, 2013

I dare you to resist even the painted patented Shiba stare.
Enter to win a custom pet portrait by dafonteart.

Do you love your dog as much as I love mine? Want the perfect gift for a dog lover, or perhaps just a way to forever capture your dog in art form? EA has teamed up with dafonteart to launch one sweet giveaway for animal lovers!

I tend to be slightly biased about these things but I happen to think my dog, Cinnamon, is one of the coolest pups out there. Not a day goes by where she doesn't do something funny, lovable, or a combination of both. When Dara from dafonteart contacted me to ask if I'd be interested in a custom pet portrait of Cinnamon I couldn't say yes fast enough! This is something I'd thought about doing for a few years, and truth be told I have tried it once before but wasn't happy with the results.

This time around? Stunned into silence. How gorgeous does Cinnamon look in the portrait at the top of this post? The process is very simple. I sent Dara a couple of inspiration shots of Cinnamon and several days later she was done. It was really that easy! She picked the background color for me (white, wisely) but you can pick your own if you choose.

Here's the inspiration shot the portrait was based from:


I'd say the results speak for themselves, no? A custom pet portrait would make a fantastic gift for any pet lover, especially when painted by an artist as talented as Dara. Her style is gorgeous! Your portrait does not have to be a dog. It can be any animal -- a cat, a bird, a horse, whatever!

Up for grabs in this Effortless Anthropologie contest is one custom pet portrait by Dara from dafonteart!!!
