I met artist Jen Lightfoot through a mutual friend, Jessica Perner, another incredible artist that has used me in several artwork projects. I met her through Instagram and when I found her page I had to look through every single picture she had posted. I immediately fell in love with her style and the uniqueness of each art piece she creates.
I was so excited when Jen started working on my portrait which was an amazing drawing illustration with colored pencil and ink as her medium. She also created it on a wooden board with gave the art piece an extra bit of uniqueness with her soft and fluid colors she used, which was so cool. She used one of my model photos as her reference and we collaborated a bit to make sure we were on the same page when it came to the illustration and how we both wanted it to look. Jen was very kind and would send me work in progress photos to make sure everything was coming up well. Every time she would send me a picture, I’d get even more excited!
I love how even though a photo reference was used to create this creation, Jen still added her own little cuteness and uniqueness to it, such as putting a spider on my shoulder because in the actual model photo, I wore a flower piece that had spiders in it.
I’m so happy with how my absolutely gorgeous and amazing portrait came out and I’m so thankful to the lovely Jen Lightfoot for all the time and effort that she put into my piece.
