I commissioned a drawing of a family pet as a gift, the photo I sent Bobby wasn't that good (our dog died several years ago and cameras have progressed a fair bit since then!) but the likeness Bobby produced from it was fantastic - he captured him really well. I'm sure the drawing will be well received.
Service was quick and comms were quick, friendly and polite.
I'd have no hesitation in using Bobbys Pencil Portraits again and would happy recommend to anyone. Read More

I can't recommend Robert highly enough. I contacted him at short notice to do a portrait of my friend's dog for his birthday. The portrait was provided in ample time and was absolutely stunning. My friend was completely bowled over by it and has had a brilliant birthday - all thanks to Robert. I will definitely be using him again.

Photo uploaded by Claire DavisI commissioned Robert Shirt to draw our two dogs for my husbands birthday and the result was exceptional. He has captured their appearance and character perfectly. The service he offered was first class and it ensured that the finished piece was exactly what was required. His artistic skill is simply stunning and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

I have used Robert Shirt twice for animal portraits. On both occasions I have been very pleased with the result. I sent photos of the animal to Robert, the first was a horse , and the second was a dog. On both occasions the portrait was very true to life, the colouring and expressions were good. The information provided was clear and accurate, the pictures arrived on time, well mounted and framed.

I asked Bobby to do a portrait of my beloved cat Oscar, who sadly passed away at the end of 2013. It is just incredible, and captures him perfectly. I am so impressed with the quality of the picture and the service was absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend him and his services highly enough. A really fitting epitaph for my best mate.

Robert produced a pencil drawing of our chocolate lab as an Xmas present for my husband. The service he gave from start to finish was excellent, and the finished product was exceptional. He captured Riley's personality perfectly, my husband was over the moon. Robert is a very talented guy and I would recommend him to anyone.

Had my wife's two dogs who we had to put to sleep drawn for her for Christmas, when she saw the drawing she was overwhelmed with joy, I would highly recommend Bobby's Pencil Portraits if you need anything drawn.
