Love this art work!by (Sachse, TX, US)

I thank the artist who created that caricature for our colleague who was leaving after 17yr. It touched him and made him laugh. All subjects were created as specified, and the main guy - looked very much like our colleague! great job! There was some initial lack of clear communication and I was not able to show a preview at his going away party. That was unfortunate. But it does not detract from the work that the artist accomplished.

In Love With Results by Marisa Ragonesi (Randolph, NJ, US)

This is probably one of my favorite things I've ever bought for someone because it made them as happy as it made me. Great communication with my artist to provide me with the exact portrait I wanted and fast delivery time. Worth every penny and then some!

Best Friendsby Patti Russell (Kingsland, GA, US)

I shared a photo of my husband and our dog who is nearing the end of his days with us. It is beautiful! I know my husband will cherish this artwork. It is better than I expected. Thank you so very much!

My buddy, Mr Boog, dog printby Eddie Black (Leander, TX, US)

The colored pencil drawings of my Bulldog Mr. Boog is amazing! The life like print was so perfect and real like that it warms my heart. I highly recommend MyDaVinci to others. What a great gift to provide someone that is personal for someone you love just in time for Christmas. The communication and delivery was also spot on. Thank you to the Artist and this company.

Great Artwork Drawing by Robert de Graaff (Noblesville, IN, US)

I had an old photo of my wife in her younger years. I was able to take a picture of it with my iPhone and submitted it for a pencil drawing. Even though it was not a professional photo, myDaVinci did a great job on a hand drawn pencil artwork. Family loved the artwork and all asked where I had it done.

Unbelievableby Autumn Sullivan (Glen Allen, VA, US)

I was floored by the authenticity of the portrait done. The picture is two of our loved ones that passed last year. They were able to merge two different pictures to create the finished product. This is not the first time I've ordered from MyDavinci & certainly will not be the last!

Best gift everby Brian Hurley (Ruther Glen, VA, US)

Had this sketch made of our dear departed Sassy. Twenty years with our family, she was loved and is dearly missed. The artist who did this truly captured the personality and beauty that we will always remember. Thank you so much for helping make this an absolute perfect Christmas!

Absolutely Magnificent!by David Wood (Ozark, MO, US)

I thought it impossible to make my exquisite fiancé any more beautiful than she is and the artist at myDaVinci somehow created a magnificent work of art that brought an ephemeral, dreamy opulence to her natural beauty!! Absolutely captures the essence of her beauty and the canvas belongs in a gallery but I will treasure it myself!

korlie and rylieby Stephanie Sherman (Hesperus, CO, US)

Best gift of the seasonby Shana McCullough Downing (Orlando, FL, US)

I was so excited to see my father's face when he opened this for Christmas. He loved it and he is a tough person to get gifts for. This was perfect. My mom displayed it for everyone to see throughout the holidays. Great qaulity and worth every penny!!

Park benchby David Jones (Belleair, FL, US)

Very pleased with the overall experience from ordering through changes done. Easy to order , changes were done during the process, shipping was on time. The overall look was what I was looking to achieve from the bench, to the lettering, the landscaping with the water in the background and the 2 cardinals. The 2 faces were somewhat of a disappointment but faces are probably the hardest to capture I guess.

Won Best Christmas Giftby April Howington (Corpus Christi, TX, US)

My mother visited this cotton gin factory on one of her vacations, she herself manages a local gin. She has always been a collector of pencil drawings, primarily purchases from the places she has visited. I couldn't have asked for a better gift for her. The price was reasonable, the work was wonderful and it definitely made a statement for the best Christmas gift this year. Communication was great and shipping was as expected. A definite do again.

Rave Amiby Nicole Anderson (Pittsburgh, PA, US)

It arrived in enough bubble wrap where I could make a dress out of it :) Very well packed for protection because you know how the delivery services love a Fragile sticker. Ken did another order of one of my friends and he is really awesome at detail and following instruction on what to change. I thank you for animating not only my friends and their music journeys and look forward in getting some more artwork in this style!

Beautiful Work!!!by Molly Bath (Bethel, VT, US)

This was our 5th portrait from your company and we're always pleased with the results. With this one we were VERY specific, nitpicking details because we wanted it to look just right. We were so happy when it arrived, it looks just like him! And his grandmother LOVED her gift! <3. Thank you so much!!

The perfect picture!! by Tori Schoonover (Johnson City, NY, US)

This drawing of my 3 dogs was the best gift I've ever received. The accuracy was absolutely unbelievable. It's like my dogs are staring back at me. I can't recommend this company enough. I would give them 10 stars if I could !!!

Beautiful home portraitby patti gosman (northport, NY, US)

This was a gift for a seller who had been in the home for 50 years. It came out beautiful, and the photo I sent was taken in January so my davinci obliged me by adding leaves to the tree in the backround. I was very happy with the watercolor as was my recipient. My only complaint was in shipping. The package was basically destroyed by the time it reached me, and it did take awhile. Longer that anticipated.

Fairy childby Denise Richards (Johnsonville, NY, US)

I could not have been happier with my entire experience with myDavinci.com. The website is easy and fun to use, the artwork produced is amazing. I was delighted with remarkably fast turn-around. My framed artwork arrived carefully wrapped and in perfect condition. I love it!! I am so thrilled with it that I am about to send in my second "order"... and I'm sure with many more to follow.

Carbon copy of the photograph by Divya Bhat (VENICE, CA, US)

The artist did a fantastic job of capturing our beloved Molly who left our family at the age of 19. I had this made for my father who lost his greatest companion. This drawing brought him a tremendous amount of joy when he received it.

In Memory of Colinby Elizabeth Weber (Fairport, NY, US)

My husband and I are extremely pleased with My DaVinci. The artist did an excellent job. Additionally, after sending the first draft, we quickly received the final revision that incorporated my revisions. And overall, I received the finished product in a very timely manner.

Extremely pleasedby Canella Torres (Chicago , IL, US)

The artwork turned out so much better than expected. The attention to detail is spot on. Thank you for creating a beautiful image of my sister's dog who passed a few weeks ago. Thank you so much !!

Mom's Birthday Presentby Ivy Kingsland (Phoenix, AZ, US)

I ordered this picture...I thought it would make a Great Birthday Present for my Mother. It was a lot of Fun having her face put into a Piece of Historical Artwork. I ordered it framed...it came completely finnished...all that I had to do was give it to her. They did such a Great Job...you cannot even tell that her face was just added to a copy of the original portrait...it was truly a unique and special gift...the kind that you cannot just find anywhere. They did such a Fabulous job...I will order from them again. I Highly Recommend this site to anyone wanting to give a one of a kind special gift. Thank you myDaVinci!!!

A custom masterpiece!by Tiffany Chin (Long Beach, CA, US)

I gifted this piece of art to my future in-laws for the holidays, and it was a hit.!! The customization process was seamless. I got to select one of my favorite photos (which I may add, was not easy to photoshop!), customize a frame to my liking, and the rest was history. Customer service was also top notch. I had originally submitted a photo that was too low of resolution and was contacted right away to correct that problem. The end product truly exceeded my expectations, and I would gladly order from these pros again.! Thank you!!

Caricature/video gamerby Karyna Busch (Atlanta, GA, US)

Such a great job! My husband really loves it! The artist customized a few things on the picture (a cat instead of a dog, couch color, tv screen made larger), and it looks just like we would want it to be resembling the real things across the room and on the wall. Talented artists, prompt email responses, timely follow up. Thank you very much!

Myloby Brian Ballou (Alvin, TX, US)

It was amazing . I got it for my girlfriend for her birthday. She loved it. I would recommend this for any dog lover out there.

Mother and Daughterby Richard Darlington (Calgary, AB, CA)

I was looking for a unique Christmas gift for my mother. I recalled watching the sketch artists in Rome's Piazza Navonna last summer and searched the Web for a local artist. I found nothing in my area but I discovered your website and sent two of my favourite photos of my wife and daughter. The finished portrait was exceptional and my mother loved her gift. Well done. I'm searching for other photos that may be suited to a protrait rendering.

Excellent work and great service!by Elmer Tolentino (Livermore, CA, US)

This company was very patient and professional, helping me getting the work done to my satisfaction and in a timely manner. I actually did not approve the first 3 versions of the work but it did not matter. They continued to work with me through the various interations until I was completely happy. The final work of art was done beautifully and the look on my Wife's face when she saw the portrait will forever be remembered. Thanks MyDaVinci! I am a customer for life. Jon from California

Jarjue weddingby kerry jarjue (Gilbert, AZ, US)

We absolutely love the painting you made from our photo. The painting came out better than the picture. To us it looks like we’re floating and our emotions that day we definitely were. It was so easy to order and the painting got to us in a very timely matter. Thank you so much for the beautiful art work.

Holly Streetby DENNIS RICHMOND (Loveland, OH, US)

Great job. The process from photo to delivered product was efficient. Communications throughout the project was detailed and timely. myDaVinci produced the painting exactly as instructed.

Exceeded Expectationsby Lorraine W. (Cortlandt Manor, NY, US)

I was very hesitant about doing this, because I didn't want it to look amateurish or like a paint-by-numbers job. But I have to say I was really pleased with this, and I know the person I am giving this to will love it! I was also extremely worried about shipping a large glass frame, but it was wrapped securely and arrived in perfect condition. It is important for people to keep in mind that a watercolor is not an acrylic or an oil painting, so the colors are more subtle and delicate. I would absolutely order from myDaVinci again.

Personnel Touchby Marcus (Mount Olive, AL, US)

The myDaVinci team did an outstanding job on my sketch request. It featured 3 generations of family that have never met. It was done off of 3 individual pictures that were photoshopped together to make it appear as if it happend in real life. I give them 5 stars and highly recommend them!
