PROCESS

INQUIRY

Once you reach out about your design idea and needs, I'll follow up with you to get a rough outline of who your character is and a description of them. Together we'll develop a manageable timetable that works for you.

DISCOVERY

I'll be giving you a small survey, asking for key elements:

  • Number of characters (more than 1 if an illustration)    

  • Name    

  • Age        

  • Character appearance, from height and Skin tone to blazer and boots        

  • Photo references for me to work with    

  • Personality traits    

  • Relationship to story    

  • A rough overview of the story synopsis        

  • Story setting, whether time period or alternate universe    

  • Props    

  • Composition requirements and/or color Scheme    

  • Target audience    

  • Story genre        

  • + More information that you think would be useful for the design    

CHARACTER MODELING

After I do some additional research on my end, I begin sketching rough concepts of your character. I'll come up with two to three outfits for you to choose from.

CLEANUP & INKING

Once you give your first approval of the character's overall design and choose the concept you want, I'll continue the development process. Here I clean up the sketch details, work on additional views of the character and send the results for the second approval. If everything's a go from there, I begin the outlining process of the entire character's concept design.

COLOR STYLING & OPAQUING

Coloring time! Here I apply the color palette that either you supplied during the discovery process, or that I've come up with upon your permission. This part of the process is where I apply flat tones of color. Then I follow up with light, shadow, and texture.

FINAL REVIEW

I send you previews of your character's design fully rendered. Here will be your third and final approval for any required changes.

DELIVERY

Once I get the go-ahead from you, it's on to packaging! I send you the files, formatted to your specifications, and you're on your way to world-building!
