I have and I will again in the future.

I paid 500 for an oil painting of stan. and I fully intend on getting anouther one done of him.
A friend of mine paid 200 for a pastel drawing of her horse

Both pictures are incredible. extremely detailed and basicly masterpieces that we will treasure forever.

Kayty on here, did a beautiful pastel portrait of my Rex for me. She charges roughly $140AU if I remember correctly. Well worth it though.

I do commission work of pets, and have been flat out for the last 6 months with commissions. There is quite a market once you know where and how to advertise!
I think that commissioned hand drawn portraits of an animal are more special than a photograph, when you can find a genuinely good portrait artist, the personality and emotion of your pet is enhanced and really brought forward in a portrait as opposed to a photograph. I also think there is something about someone having spent tens of hours working on capturing your beloved pet that makes it even more special
