Let's admit it, we all know who really runs our household. We love them, pet them, feed them, entertain them―we are basically servants, and our pets are kings and queens. And we are not even mad about it. We want to take it to the next level of adoration and obsession and make them feel like actual royalty, just like they seem to us.
The start-up company Crown & Paw extends a helping hand to any pet parents who want to treat their beloved floofs to something unique and unusual. This company we didn't know we needed in our lives has been operating for a little over a year now and specializes in creating custom pet portraits with a royal twist to them. Incredibly talented digital artists combine 19th-century portraits and rare Renaissance-era oil paintings with your favorite pet photos to achieve this funny and heartwarming result.
We've previously featured an impressive gallery on Bored Panda and here's a list of more adorable animals proudly posing with their regal portraits they totally deserve! Would you hang a masterpiece featuring your pet on the wall?
Do you think your cat is a sophisticated princess? Or your dog looks like a brave veteran? Maybe your furry friend would be an intellectual ambassador or a lord in a parallel universe? Crown & Paw allows pet owners to channel the inner spirit of their pet by providing a vast variety of styles as inspiration such as The Nobel, The Dame, The General, The Colonel, The Pearled Lady, The Astronaut, as well as limited Game of Thrones-inspired or Halloween portraits and many more to choose from.
Crown & Paw started as a passion project and evolved into an impressive pet goods brand that is "dedicated to helping pet owners express their love, adoration, and sometimes even their obsessiveness, with their beloved pets." A team of professional digital artists always aims to portray each pet's unique features and convey its personality, so among thousands of portraits of dogs, cats, birds, hamsters, hedgehogs, pigs, goats, and reptiles―no two portraits are the same.
It seems like these creative portraits were everything pet owners were dreaming of and 7,514 5-star reviews on the company's website confirm it. Crown & Paw has been sharing photos of proud animals posing with their regal canvases on social media and quickly gained over 170,000 followers on Instagram and 100,000 more fans on Facebook.
"We're really inspired by the love you have for your pets and we love to see you sharing your Crown & Paw art on social media. You are the reason we do this," creators say.
Whether these custom portraits were made as a treat to the owners, to preserve a memory of a furry family member, or as a precious gift, they're now a delight for the whole internet to appreciate. Enjoy!
