Perfect Size for Custom Pet Portraits

As a pet parent who loves art, I'm often asked, "How big should you go with a pet portrait?" The size you choose can really impact how your custom piece fits your space. Here I'll overview factors to consider when selecting dimensions for quality pet portraits.

Envision Where You'll Display Your Pet Portrait

First, imagine where in your home you want to proudly exhibit your portrait. Then select a size that flatters that space:

  • Smaller prints for offices, shelves and cozy spaces. Consider Portrait My Pet's compact A4 size, perfect for desks.
  • Medium pieces like A3 that balance on accent walls or entryways.
  • Large statement-making canvases like Portrait My Pet's generous A1 size designed for expansive walls.
  • For versatile pieces made to move, opt for mid-range dimensions like A2 from Portrait My Pet.

Take measurements to ensure your chosen size synergizes with the intended area.

Choose Size Based on How Many Pets You Want Featured

If portraying a single pet, size comes down to personal preference. But for multi-pet portraits, go larger:

  • A single pet floats nicely in smaller A4 or A3 sizes from Portrait My Pet.
  • For two or more pets, level up to A2 or A1 to give each breathing room.

With a roomier canvas, the artist can spotlight each animal and relationship.

Select a Profile View for Larger Sizing Impact

Interestingly, a profile or straight-on portrait has greater visual presence than a head-on depiction.

  • A forward facing headshot can risk looking compressed in tighter space.
  • But a strong profile fills canvases with dramatic effect. The pet's features become compelling.

Go with profile or angled views for portraits made to impress like Portrait My Pet's grand A1 size.

Match Size to Your Pet's Personality

Just as art style suits a pet's spirit, so does scale.

  • Larger for natural showstoppers like regal dogs and horses.
  • Moderate for cute yet reserved pets like bunnies and kittens.
  • Smaller for pets with concentrated charm like birds, rodents and reptiles.

When size mirrors personality, portraits have maximum impact.

Finding Portrait Size and Style Synergy

From itty-bitty A4 prints to eye-catching extra large A1 canvases, Portrait My Pet's range gives you artistic freedom. Just be sure to thoughtfully envision size, placement, composition and personality fit. With synergy between scale and your vision, your custom pet portrait will forever captivate.
