Each illustration starts with a pencil or digital sketch mock-up so you can see the progress of the illustrations.

After the sketches are approved, coloring takes place to bring the characters to life. The color palette, tone, and overall style of the drawings will be discussed before starting this step to ensure branding and cohesiveness.

I can create a variety of styles, including children’s picture book images, fantasy, and realistic technical drawings.

Each illustration project is custom quoted, as there are so many variables to discuss to determine your project’s wants, needs, and overall vision and workload.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Manipulated stock photography will be the fastest and most cost-effective
  • Color images are more labor-intensive than black-and-white
  • Custom-illustrated pieces take longer because they are hand-created
