Many of the romantic commission orders we receive are for wedding gifts, which we love! A one-of-a-kind portrait is certainly more memorable to a new couple than a set of towels, right?
Chloe commissioned this piece for Ben from Shobey1kanoby, and we love how the realistic painted portrait came out. To commission a portrait of your own in this style, stop by Shobey1kanoby’s commission page.
Backstory Behind the Piece – Q&A with Chloe
ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this piece?
Chloe (C): My boss Ben Parr wanted a unique wedding gift to give to his close friends.
AC: We’ve found that choosing a reference photo for a portrait can be the hardest part. How did you find the right collection of shots to send to your artist?
C: Ben provided me with the photos- I believe they were engagement photos!
AC: What advice would you give to someone who is interested in commissioning art, but has never done so before?
C: Be specific with what you want, and take time to pick the artist you want :)
