Finalize the agreement

Once we are all clear on your vision, we’ll create a proposal for you with all the details of your project and a quote. Once you accept the proposal a 50% deposit will be due.

We’ll open a project for you on our easy-to-use project management software and you’ll meet your dedicated project manager.

Now we’re ready to start creating your beautiful illustrations!

A talented illustrator will create your illustrations

We have four steps to create your perfect book illustrations. On each step you can give feedback and we'll revise accordingly.

The first step is character design. Since your character(s) are one of the most important parts of your story, we devote a whole step to getting them perfect.

After this, your illustrator will create a rough sketch storyboard of your whole book. This is so that we can plan the best layout, make sure it's dynamic and looks good as a whole, and that you like it!

Then it's onto detailed sketches, where we fully develop the rough storyboard sketches.

Once you approve the sketches, your illustrator will add color and final details to the illustrations. Again you can give feedback for final tweaks, so you love your illustrations!

We will deliver your illustrations in the required format and ready for print and/or your ebook.
