Andrew’s digital artworks can

or the Pet Portraits for Everyone website.

For only £30, your favourite photo of a beloved animal companion can be turned into a beautiful portrait by Andrew Hinkinson, digital artist. He uses a real brush (with magnetised carbon filaments in the hairs) on an iPad.

A traditional brush can no more paint on its own than an iPad can. It takes artistic talent and several hours to work on your painting. Andrew only ever focuses on one character study at a time.
