This artist can draw multiple hyper-realistic portraits using both her hands and feet simultaneously.

Rajacenna, an artist from Rotterdam, Netherlands can complete up to six illustrations at the same time with every single of her limb holding paintbrushes.

Rajacenna, who prefers to keep her surname and age confidential, taught herself how to draw with her feet and hands to increase her productivity and stop herself from getting bored.

She started drawing at the age of 16 and soon became a published artist.

"In 2019 the idea came to me to be more productive because I didn't make any artworks for the previous years due to health issues," she said.

"I didn't practice it at all and just started doing it."

Rajacenna claims that the root of her talent lies in her brain.

She claims that she has taken an EEG scan that revealed extraordinary brain performance, while drawing.

"The connectivity between the left and right brain are totally connected and three times higher than normal," she said.

"So they exchange information at a very fast speed."

The process of making pieces like these is incredibly technical.

Rajacenna added: "It's constantly multitasking between all the drawing that I'm working on. I switch my focus back and forth."

"The latest pieces I created with pencils and paint. I don't really think about the techniques I use.

"I just try to make it look as accurate as possible which is much harder of course when you work on so many simultaneously."

Her drawings can take as long as 40 hours to complete.

She often works with portraits and her inspiration is the people she draws, who have been public figures such as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Billie Eilish, or Justin Bieber.

She said: "I always draw people that I love and inspire me, for my other work I love to create things from my imagination."
