Lyra Art Design and Derwent Graphic Pencils on Extra Smooth Bristol Board
Memorialize your little one in fine, lifelike detail. Our meticulous UK artist Sam puts pencil to paper to create these traditional portraits, brimming with heartfelt detail. Soft locks of fur and wet noses come to life with skilfully placed pencil strokes and expertly blended graphite, on a smooth white background.
These remarkable pencil portraits not only resemble the likeness of your beloved four-legged family member, but look so real you’d swear you could run your fingers through their fur.
Choose graphite pencil for a timeless pet portrait that looks stunning wherever it is displayed. Pencil drawings are available mounted, in three sizes.
Send us your best photo of your dearest friend(s), and in just 21 days, you’ll receive a professional portrait that captures so much more than a photograph ever could – that “welcome home” feeling, those quiet nights on the couch, and those perfect days at the park.
After working with polo ponies for a long period, I started drawing again five years ago and now draw everyday. I love drawing blacks labs and horses for their shine. Based in the Cotswolds I’m kept company by my bengal cat and a loving young moggy.

I had this portrait done just over a year ago for Franks 12th birthday. Today would be his 13th birthday. The portrait is all the more poignant now he’s passed, as we look at it with happiness rather than heartbreak. I’m so glad we had this done while he was still so full of life. View this artist

Love the portrait of my two Lhasas. It’s captured their personality exactly. How do you do that from a photo? I must praise the customer service.
