In this post, I am going to share the process I take when Illustrating a scene. This illustration is for an online story.
I’ve been illustrating books as early as I started freelancing. That’s maybe 2014. I’ve illustrated books for new writers. The combination is perfect because I am not very good at drawing picture books myself. As time passed, I’ve learned a lot through colleagues and online tutorials. Also, experience is the best teacher.
The first stage is the sketch. I read through the illustration scene as described, this process takes a while as I am also going to look for references that may help me with the illustration. Sometimes I read twice or thrice.
After doing the sketch, I send it to the client for approval. When approved I finalize the illustration. If revision is requested, I’d do that first.
If you have any question about my process feel free to comment below.
