    A close friend of mine recently got laid off from her job because their store closed. However, 2 days ago, her dog was hit by a car because his collar broke when he took off after a squirrel. He's hit pretty badly with a fractured hip, one broken leg and various degrees of internal damage. The vet gave 2 options, either put him down due to damages or try to save him at a very high cost due to the amount of injuries. He's at the hospital right now, and they want to try to save him, which is currently an estimated $8000 of surgeries, not even including the hospital stays and medication he needs.

    Anyways, long story short, I'm helping her raise money because she has no job currently and a lot of student loans as well.

    I'm going to be selling portraits of your pets/children/family.

    I don't have any pet examples but here's examples of what it's going to be like.

    1. ($20) Pen sketch - approximately 10x13 inches

    2. ($30) Colored pencil crayon portrait - approximately 10x13 inches

    Also: If you think you MIGHT be interested, but isn't sure, I am willing to do the drawing anyways and you can decide AFTER if you want to buy it or not. My friend really needs the money and I'm willing to do as much as I can to help her.

    How many subjects can be in each portrait? And do you need a photo to go off of (like, copy the photo) or would multiple photos work for an idea, and then you pose them however you want?

    Multiple subjects are ok. Preferably no more than 3 since the portrait is not that large. Photo with all subjects together preferable but if you had different images, that is workable too depending on the images you provide.
