I was thinking of getting my husband a drawing or painting of DD with Dmutt for xmas. I cant find anyone locally. Has anyone used any of the ones which advertise on Internet ie from a photograph. If so would you recommend

I've had two pastel drawings done by this lady from photographs and she is excellent!

If a pencil drawing would be OK try Zakodia.com

Highly recommend a lovely lad called Jack Ede. If you email him the picture, he'll give you a quote. I have 2 of his drawings. www.facebook.com/jackedeart/?fref=ts

He was recently featured on a blog of '20 best artists under 20'. uk.complex.com/style/2015/04/the-20-best-artists-under-20-right-now/jack-ede

Just to say i used margaret scanlan as recommended above. The resulting drawing is perfect. She was extremely helpful and responsive from beginning to end. Thank you Whippet2 for the recommendation
