John has a friend who is fond of Pokemon and thought it would be nice to surprise her with a Pokemon-inspired portrait. What a nice gesture!
He chose Lucía García as his artist and the result is very vibrant and happy. We’re pleased with how it came out and hope John’s friend likes it, too! To commission your own portrait in this style, check out Lucía García’s anime portraits commission page.
Backstory Behind the Piece – Q&A with John
ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this piece?
John (J): My inspiration came from seeing similar pictures on your and other websites like it. Basically I saw a similar picture and wanted one for someone.
AC: Are you, too, a Pokemon fan? If you were to be drawn with a Pokemon, which would it be?
J: I am a Pokemon fan, but I’m not sure which Pokemon I would want to be pictured with. Probably Mewtwo in an epic fight scene though…
AC: What advice would you give to a first-time art commissioner?
J: I would tell anyone looking for custom art to be specific with what they want, and to trust the artist. You choose an artist for a reason, let them do what they do best. You will always be happy.
