A new online platform at Drawberry.com is launched to bring together artists and customers from all over the world and offer them an easy way to find each other and strike deals on custom hand painting from photos.
An Australian software developing company with over 8 years history and a great reputation in the system utilities market has just launched a brand-new startup, Drawberry.com.
Drawberry is a website that lets professional artists from all over the world sign up and offer their custom picture painting services. At the same time it lets customers from any country upload their photos and get bids from international talent on creating custom paintings from those photos.
Drawberry plans to continuously expand its database of painters willing to offer painting-from-photo services in different artistic genres, styles and media. Using the Drawberry platform is free to both artists and customers. The service offers a high level of security by having all monetary transactions processed through PayPal.
Customers can upload a photo they want turned into a professional painting, specify their requirements and preferences, and wait for artists to bid on the job. Once bids come in, the customer may look through them and choose an artist to work with. Completed work can be previewed before getting shipped and modifications may be requested when necessary.
Photos do not have to be portraits only. Customers may request paintings of their favorite natural scenery, cityscape, scenes from sports competitions, family gatherings or anything else that might be in a photo.
Artists can upload samples of their work into an online portfolio, describe their techniques, style and the type of paintings they like to work on. They can then browse through orders and select the ones they would like to bid on. Drawberry offers a private messaging system that allows artists and customers to communicate while work on the painting is being done, which helps them clarify various questions that may arise and get a final result that satisfies customer expectations.
“The team behind Drawberry has a few art buffs who pushed the idea of this service as something that would help a lot of people on a global scale,” – says Anna Lind of Drawberry. “Knowing that community plays an increasingly important role online, we decided to create one that would be fun and useful at the same time. Now street artists of Paris may be available to paint your portrait even if you live in Vancouver BC or Sydney. When you think of it, that’s simply incredible, and we hope the idea catches on with other art buffs around the world.”
