Posing Your Pet
Step 1: Pose your Pet
Position your dog or cat in a room with ample lightning and make sure they don’t get distracted by every little thing. To get the best results we recommend taking a picture of your pet sitting or standing up and looking directly into the camera.
Step 2: No seriously, pose your pet!
Okay, so your dog or cat got distracted. No problem! Just tell them how much of a wonderful good boy or girl they are and use your superior pet parenting skills to get them to pose. Easy-peasy, right?
Step 3: OK just Bribe your pet to pose for your picture
So your dog or cat is getting too distracted, twitchy and restless for you to draw them? Well then, just bribe them with a tasty treat and make them work for it.
Step 4: Draw your pet as fast as you can!!!
Ready, set, go! It’s only a matter of time before your dog or cat gets distracted again, so draw them as quickly as you can!
Step 5: Admit you’re not an artist and get help
If you’re happy with your drawing proceed to step 6. If not, maybe it’s time to contract a professional artist for some help. If you don’t happen to know any, you can find some professional artists on websites like Upwork, Fiverr or Freelancer who you can work with to cartoonize your pet based on a picture of them.
