Feather Painting Commissions

2012 Feather Painting Commissions!
I am taking commissions! (You can follow some of my commission and painting work on my Livestream page: Though each commission is priced on a piece by piece basis, the following is some info on my prices and how commissions work:

How it works:
You will get an original, one of a kind feather of your choice (Yes! I take commissions! Consider getting your favorite animal (fictional or realistic), your pet, or even your name painted on a feather.) Have a hard-to-buy-for friend or family member? Feather paintings make unique customized gifts!

My paintings are framed to: 8x10, 10x10, and 10x20. These are really large feathers!

All of my feather paintings are custom framed in high-quality shadowboxes with hand-cut matboard in the shape of the artwork within. No two are ever exactly the same!


Small, simple paintings (8x10,10x10): $120 and up

On a smaller painting such as this, it is difficult to fit in a lot of detail, so be prepared to limit the subject to smaller animals or animal portraits (from the shoulders up). The painting will be framed and matted shadow box style, then shipped to you. International shipping will cost a little extra.

Larger, more complex paintings (10x20) $170 and up

These are the nicest of the paintings because of their size and the complexity in which I can paint the subject. These are paintings which are usually done on huge turkey tail feathers as a fan of 2 or more. Larger, more detailed, portraits, or full animal paintings are possible here. As always, the painting will be framed and matted in one of my beautiful shadow box frames, usually paired with velvety suede matting. I like to also adorn the feather paintings with smaller decorative feathers, leather cord, and beads.

Other options:
If you have something a bit different in mind, please note me! If you'd like something a little less complex that would fit your budget better, I can work with you! :D Original feather painting keychains and pendants are available as well.

"Dittin does absolutely beautiful work on the paintings. She works every step of the way with you. She asks you what pose you want, the colour scheme, and size of the work you want.

The price includes the paint, feathers, leather strapping, beads, extra feathers, matting, framing, and shipping. All of the supplies are wonderfully cordinated to match. I had the wonderful oppertunity to see my painting done live on Ustream. Dittin is extreamly prfessional, and asked for my input every step of the way to make my painting truly one-of-a-kind.

The price of her artwork is more than reasonable. Everything matches beautifully! The framing is beautifully done, and give the whole thing an antique charm that is at home in any setting.

The whole experiance left me comfortable in the knowledge that my painting would be done in a fashion that I would be proud to show off. =D I would definately recommend her to anybody! In fact, if I had the money, I'd comission her again. :D"

:icontsumeuchiha: said:

"I really must say Dittin's feather paintings are amazing! Ever since I first saw her DA page I've always wanted one of her paintings but never had what I thought was enough money. Then when she started using Ustream and painting her feathers on there I just had to get one of my character Tsume. She was amazing and got the first one done in one night! After that I just had to get another one(especially when she told me how much she loved my character's

Her prices where more affordable than I had guessed and she's more then willing to work with you on the pricing. She puts her all into creating a one of a kind master piece that you'll be proud to show off to all of your friends. Plus, being able to watch her paint your commission is a bonus that Dittin features. Her commissions are definitely worth more then what she charges. I highly recommend getting a commission(or more then one) from her. you won't be disappointed."

:iconpurpelblur: said:

"This was my first commission experience and I must say it was a wonderful one. The price is very agreeable. The whole package from the painting itself, frame, matting, and beads is really spectacular. And I would happily buy from her again.

I had to the luck of watching Dittin work on my piece and I must say that her expertise and knowledge blew me away.

I do highly recommend commissioning Dittin. Five out of five

When I came upon your website, I was awed by your talent and creativity. The samples anyone selects for display should be their best. But, as I came to discover, they were actually representative of your talent. You selected not your best, but your favorites.
I have no artistic talent, but have always been an admirer of those who are given a gift of artistic capacity. A goal I have always had was to one day be able to commission an artist that I respected to utilize their talents and give them the discretion to execute a work so personal that it would reflect in my project in a very individual way.
But, could there be something unique from someone talented that I could afford? And, would the artist I chose be willing to work with me when I gave only an idea and asked them to unleash their creativity and talent to accomplish what I envisioned? If so: could I afford to make this dream a reality?
The answer is heck yes!!!! You responded to my original email promptly and were very diligent in keeping me up to date with excellent communication and outstanding ideas. I was actually made to feel that I was the most important project that you had. I went into our agreement with high expectations and your ideas, talent, creativity and ambition far exceeded the lofty standard that I set for you. High praise, but sincere -- and, the best part: you made the work I wanted and the dream I had affordable enough to become a reality. Your personality, performance and consideration are appreciated. The final work and additions we later decided upon truly reflect the beauty and soul of the subjects. I have spent my life as a salesman and always prided myself on giving the customer more than they expected. You have given me that same feeling of concern, value and performance. THANK YOU!!


"Kristan Yadao is a truly gifted artist who actually created a handpainted feather that was gifted to me. Her work is as stunning as it is affordable. She is very easy to work with and you can feel confident that you will get productions of the highest quality. She is a true artisan." - Kevin Village Stone,

Sticker Commissions Open!

Hey everyone! 

In an attempt to build up my studio a little more, I've gotten myself a vinyl cutter! Woot! So far I've made some really cute little car decals. I'm having a blast with it and want to make more stuff!

Right now I'm opening decal commissions to YOU!

So if you have a piece of art, logo, your character, your name, your car's name, or anything else you want to see made, send me your file and I'll get it cut out for you! 
Stick it on your laptop, car, window, everywhere!

The file should be vector in either Photoshop or Illustrator. If you need help with that part, let me know.

Keep in mind that this is a silhouette cut out and won't be done in full color. What are the colors? 
Check em out: White, Silver, Gray, Black, Matte Black, Daffodil, Dark Yellow, Metallic Gold, Beige, Brown, Orange, Bubblegum Pink, Cherry, Burgundy, Kelly Green, Green, Dark Green, Teal, Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Ocean Blue, Vivid Blue, Sapphire, Midnight Blue, Purple, and Plum

Remember, simple is better for decals! Tiny detailed bits won't hold up well. If you do letters, choose chunky fonts. 

Let's get creating! I want to make your stickers come to life!

Anything that fits within an 8"x3" area is $6 plus 46 cents for a stamp. :)
Larger pieces, just ask!
