Stunning result!by Nicole Curtis (Gunter, TX, US)

I ordered a pencil drawing from MyDaVinci of my daughter in front of the Eiffel Tower at 9 months old. Recently, at 20, she returned and I knew I had to order another one to display side by side. The artwork is absolutely stunning. The whole process was amazing and the emails throughout were prompt, courteous and helpful. I highly recommend this company.

Beautiful work!by Theresa Carter (Dayton, TN, US)

This is my second time ordering from myDiVinci. This time I ordered a picture of my Son to match a picture of my Daughter that I had purchased a while back. The two pictures hanging side by side look stunning! The workmanship is top notch and the customer service cannot be better! This time out there was a problem with the picture I had sent. They Emailed me almost immediately after I had placed my order telling me that the image was too small and was grainy. They advised me that I would not be happy with this image and to send them another one, which I did. They were spot on with keeping me updated on my order and it was here in less than a week. I plan on ordering again and maybe exploring some of their other amazing photo options. But if you want something striking that explodes on your wall, choose this Pop Art option! It's amazing!!

Beautiful by Erin Olson (Long Prairie, MN, US)

I cannot express how much I love this drawing. It was for a gift to a very close friend of mine. It was her daughters in the picture and the artist captured exactly what I wanted it to. Thank you so much to whoever drew this...it made a mom very happy!

myDaVinci delivered as promisedby Mark Tooman (Ottawa Hills, OH, US)

I used myDaVinci for a Christmas present to my wife. They nailed the sketch from the digital photo I sent to them. They also got the art to me in time for Christmas. I was very pleased. This was the first time I used them and will do so again in the future.

Perfect!by Barbara E. (Southeastern PA, US)

Not only did the oil painting capture such a fantastic memory of our little guy, they were able to improve the quality of the photo to get an even better image to work from. This is my fourth purchase from myDavinci and I recommend them to my friends all the time. Looking forward to my fifth purchase.

Kim and her daughtersby Russell Krivak (Columbia Station, OH, US)

All three of the girls loved the rendering of their picture. Kay was especially impressed with the job that your artist did on her and the detail of capturing her baby hairs still on her head. Very nice work.

The Boysby CharleneR Barthelemy (Katy, TX, US)

I ordered a pencil sketch of my daughter's dogs for her Mother's Day surprise. I sent a couple extra photos just so the artists could "get a feel" of the boys' personalities - ha, ha The artists suggested the pic below because it had the most detail. They are very good about communication...after several e-mails this was the final product. My daughter was overjoyed. She said it "captured" the boys' personalities from their expressions to their stances. It took on extra meaning because she is relocating so this not only is a reminder of good times shared where she lives but a great new house-warming gift for their new place. I had previously ordered a watercolor from DaVinci for a friend which was just beautiful. They don't just duplicate...they put a little bit of sentiment in everything they do...lots of coupons and very reasonable additions like matte and frame. My next order will be a color pencil sketch!!

Great results! by Ryan Sipherd (Orem, UT, US)

We surprised a friend of ours with this fabulous portrait. The tricky part was getting a photo without her suspecting, but it worked! She was truly surprised and she loved it. Well worth the effort and price. The result was very convincing. I would purchase again.

The perfect giftby Andrea Pidgeon-MacCord (Fall city, WA, US)

Yes, my son turned 18 and it was one of his gifts for his birthday, not knowing he said it was the best gift! He is a very athletic Lacrosse Player and his teammates loved it too! Unique and Priceless!

My husband by Katie Hummel (Rossburg, OH, US)

This is so awesome. Picked up his personality and it is so special. My husband passed away from leukemia in September and this was the best gift ever for us to not forget him. Absolutely will use your company again. Thank you for your superior service and hep.

Very Happy With Purchaseby Mindy Tindle (Reno, NV, US)

My daughter is graduating from high school and I wanted a "fun" gift to go along with her more serious gifts. This totally fit the bill and I was very pleased with the results. I was also extremely happy with how fast the artwork was completed and the fact that they allow you to review the final copy and make any needed changes (didn't have any) before you actually get it.

Perfect Presentby Eric L (Eagan , MN, US)

I had this drawing done for my sisters for a Christmas present. Unfortunately both of our parents had passed away very young and before their grandchildren were born so there weren't ever going to be any pictures of them all together. With the wonderful assistance of the people at myDaVinci, they created this group picture after many fine tunings from trying to combine 2 different pictures. I gave the picture to my sisters at Thanksgiving and just by the emotional reactions from them, as well as the kids, it was very apparent that they were thrilled with the drawing. Having something with our parents and the grandkids, that would never have happened, will be enjoyed for years to come. I can't recommend myDaVinci more if you are contemplating have a picture recreated. They are patient, professional and the artist is spectacular. I can't Thank them enough for bringing this idea for a present to fruition!

Irish Setter Watercolorby Lynn Smith (Avon Lake, OH, US)

I was extremely pleased with the watercolor portrait of our Irish Setter. This was intended as a birthday gift for my husband and I was worried about the detail quality of the photo I was uploading for the artist to use. But the artist did a wonderful job capturing all the special details we remembered about our dog & even made the small modification I requested after the initial preview. The whole process went very smoothly & we plan to order again from “my DaVinci.”

Husband's Christmas Presentby Dana Guidry (Raceland, LA, US)

My DaVinci captured my sweet little baby perfectly. She is no longer with us and I had this painted for my husband for Christmas! Thank you MY DaVinci for helping us keep her close to our hearts in our home!

Fantastic drawing!by John Diamond (Katy, TX, US)

My wife has been talking about a drawing of our dog, so after some research I found this site. I browsed some examples and was very impressed. The draft I was initially sent needed zero changes! It’s going to make a great Christmas gift.

Bo in her boxby JOHN BARTEL (Lewisville, TX, US)

I have ordered a lot of art from Davinci and they never disappoint me. This is my grand daughter sitting in the drawer under parents stove. It captures her perfectly.Davinci does a wonderful job in presenting my family memories to my wife . Thanks again

Incredible work, I've never looked so good.by Russell Friedlander (Sylmar, CA, US)

At first I was apprehensive, I thought it was going to look obviously artificial, but that's actually what I look like, great job to the graphic designers over there at MyDavinci. And a special shout out to the shipping department, that package could've withstood a 10' drop without a scratch. My only criticism is there aren't enough portrait options for couples. Please provide more scenes, from more eras, and you will have a customer for life. I intend to buy each one of my friends and family members a portrait of us.

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!

Beautiful work of art!by Ebonie Harris (Redford, MI, US)

Words cannot begin to express how happy I was with the beautiful portrait of my dog. I submitted the photo of my beloved, Jubilee the day after she passed away from a long illness. The artist captured the essence of my girl better than the photo I submitted. I will definitely have them create another piece of art for me! Thank you for the wonderful work!

couldn't be happierby nancylee prohaska (Exeter, RI, US)

EXCELLENT work! Absolutely beautifuul workmanship, high quality and just couldn't be happier. After the sample review, I asked if they could bring out her bright blue eyes and they did without hesitation and got the final review back almost immediately and the eyes were just like the picture. Would highly recommend to anyone, in fact I have had others done before this and was just as happy and have referred several people and they loved there's also. Thank you for making our fur babies come alive in your renditions!

Violet Bank Museum Watercolorby Pamela Wallace (Colonial Heights, VA, US)

Words cannot express how pleased I was with this piece. This was a gift for a parting council member and was presented to him last evening. Our Mayor and the entire City Council was exceptionally pleased with the quality of the piece. I will be using myDaVinci again for my personal items and most likely again, as well, for gifts such as this.

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

Annieby Kevin Tipton (Kennedale, TX, US)

This was a surprise gift to me from my wife of our furbaby Annie. Loved it!! One of the best thing she has given me in our 40 years of being together.

Happy Wifeby Monte Small (Bridgeport, WV, US)

My wife was very happy with her Christmas gift, an oil painting of her picking out our new puppy. Customer service was very helpful with the preparatory process, the artist did a masterful job, and shipping was quick. I would highly recommend myDaVinci.com!

Beautiful!by Carrie Poston (Florence, SC, US)

I recently purchased a sketch of my husband and son for my husband's first father's day. I am amazed at the quality of the work. The artist produced a beautiful sketch, amazingly detailed. My husband loves it and so do I! I have been recommending My DaVinci to family and friends. You cannot beat the quality of work and price.

Giftby Ann Kropelnicki (Mooresville, IN, US)

I had this done as a gift for my son. His beloved fur-baby had recently passed. I was thrilled with the results. I received the sample within a day and after the approval, received finished portrait within just a few days. Beyond happy with the final product!

Joyful memory by SUZANNE LANGLOIS (St. Louis, MO, US)

The artist captured our beloved dog’s playfulness and loving spirit so beautifully. MyDavinci staff always responded to my email questions and comments very quickly, with great attention to detail. I surprised my family with this painting, hanging on the wall before they came home for the holidays. Everyone has been overjoyed with it!

Our Wedding Portraitby Julie Rutledge (Stillwater, OK, US)

We decided to update my bedroom after we got married (a) since it would now be ours and (b) it looked like a college kid's bedroom. We were surprised at how adultlike it started to look! Then we needed something for the walls and wanted something with some color but that had meaning to us. Somehow we stumbled across this website and decided to give it a shot. We got our product back SO FAST! We LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It was exactly what we were looking for. It was fun, different, personal, colorful, but so professionally done. We have gotten so many compliments on it and we've only had it up a month!

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 Beautiful!!!!by April Graddick (Buford, GA, US)

The artist really captured the spirit of my sweet Maisy! She is 17 years old, but the sketch makes her look years younger ! I am very pleased with the final piece! I'm not sure how much longer we will have our sweet baby girl, but now we have a bit of her forever!!!
