My enhanced animal images are pretty unique from what I gather. These unusual digital paintings are among my most universally popular images. Often when people see their “own” animal companion, they immediately stop and buy a card – and often all the cards with that particular animal. I have had requests to put people’s own animal companion into a field of flowers. This special series is admired by many.
Freckles in Butterflies, Digital Â© Diane Clancy
Continuing with the idea of licensing (from yesterday’s post), I think it makes the most sense to start with the Enhanced Animal Images. There is no question which paintings belong in the collection. Many companies want a group of at least four images so they can create sets of products – like four place mats.
I have plenty of these paintings using a variety of cats and dogs (and even a doe and bear cub). There are a butterfly theme and three flower themes. These images might be marketable to more companies than, say, the Goddess series. All in all, this might be a good place to start.
The Goddess paintings are near and dear to my heart – so perhaps starting with other paintings make sense while I develop the ability to take the inevitable “no thank yous” that will come as I am finding my niches.
This is feeling concrete and productive – thank you!
