This is the first in a series of three illustrations based on model Brigette Cooper. I chose the take the reference photos myself so the art is completely my own. I think its important to do this or if it isn't possible then ask the photographer who has taken the photo for permission if it is going to be a very close likeness.
I decided to do this series purely for the love of it. I think its really important to create my own personal projects. It lets me create work that reflects my true style and helps me develop my skills and experiment.
Brigette was so lovely to work with and so excited to have her on board for the project. Stay tuned for pieces #2 & #3.
