The steps involved in the book illustration services.
In this first phase the illustrator works on a sketches, beginning with a sketch/line drawing in black and white, which your submissions representative will send you for review upon completion.
Author Revision (if needed)
In the next phase you can request the illustrator make changes to the sketches as needed, as long as it does not completely differ from the original description, and a revised draft will then be sent to you for approval.
Revised sketches & Final line art
All revised sketches and final line art will be sent to you for approval at one time. (This is the best time to make revisions to your illustrations.)
Once the revised sketches and final line art is already approve, we will proceed to the colouring stage.
Coloured images & Author approval
Following approval of the sketches, the illustrator will finalize the illustration with colour, and you will then receive copies of your completed illustrations for review and approval.
Interior design & Author approval
Once you approve of all your coloured illustrations, we will proceed to the interior and cover design. At this point the illustrator will finalize the images for print and send to author for approval.
