When Kel came to us for a family portrait, she presented us with a bunch of potential background ideas. Her artist, AruRuz, ultimately settled on a golf course, as the family is comprised of avid golfers. The resulting illustration offers a nice look at not only a charming family, but one of their cool pastimes, too!
Though I love getting fantasy-themed portraits, this scene makes me hope we’ll have more people coming to us with requests to be drawn doing the things they love most.

Backstory Behind the Commission – Q&A with Kel
ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this piece?
Kel (K): My family hasn’t taken a family portrait in a long time as we are never in the same city at the same time these days. So when I heard about ArtCorgi, I jumped on it. I also have always wanted an anime inspired piece.
AC: We love the golf course setting. For how long has your family been into golf?
K: Each of us has been playing for quite some time. Personally I’ve been playing off and on for 26 years… yikes. :) My family has been playing even longer than that.
AC: Have you ever commissioned art before?
K: This is my first time, but won’t be my last. I’m already thinking about my next project.
