Fiverr Friday.

Here's a little last-minute gift option for y'all.  Secret Santa, anyone?

Fiverr is a website for people advertising skills for a whopping $5.  It's a little misleading though, because they're only required to have a base product worth $5.  They all seem to nickel and dime.

I love this stuff.  Surprise!  Remember when I paid a guy $10 to draw my logo?

Because I'm a little too in love with my horse, I sent out two different photos to two different artists.  Here's my review on both of them.

This guy offered a $5 watercolor styled drawing, in color.  I sent him this photo:

And pretty quickly in return, he sent me this: 

I'm pretty satisfied with it, but if you've noticed my sudden fascination with turning photos into watercolors, this is why.  I was pretty sure I could replicate it!

She took my breath away and it's been so hard to sit on this.  For $5, she offers a black-and-white watercolor style digital drawing.  Her prices go up pretty quickly from there.  I contacted both artists in advance with photos, to verify that they would feel comfortable doing horses.  She gets bonus parts for calling him majestic.  :)

She took significantly longer to get the work back, but it's a wholly different quality of piece.  She was also easy to work with on changes I wanted made.

The photo I sent her:

I asked her to remove the bridle for simplicity.  And what she sent me:

I'm not an artist. We know I can't draw shit.  But something about this took my breath away.
