For most jobs, the process follows just four simple steps.
Here's an example of a typical job, shared with the client's permission.
One day I received an email from a soon-to-be client after she discovered my Unraveling Man paintings online. She wanted me to create an illustrated header for her website, Conflict Undone, featuring a similar character.
What exactly she was looking for was still up in the air, but she knew it should feature a female version of the character, bright colors and should follow the themes of her work: spirituality, conflict resolution, and cultural understanding.
Following our discussion, I presented her with this selection of four thumbnails, each of which represented these themes in different ways.
She chose to move forward with the first thumbnail, with the addition of the silhouettes in the second.
Now it’s time to start the piece proper!
I began drawing, and once I completed the initial linework, I sent it to get her approval. Since the silhouettes overlap, and the Unraveling Woman has so much negative space, I included very simple flat colors to indicate what was what.
Once she approved the linework, we went to step 3.
This is the stage where the piece really comes alive!
During our initial discussions we decided upon the coloring techniques I should use, such as digital watercolor, and cosmic effects in the silhouettes.
I sent the following image to her, and we moved into the final step of the process.
Following the completion of the initial color pass we discussed a few finishing touches, which I implemented and the piece was ready for prime time!
At this point I provided my client with clearly labeled versions of the file for use on the web and in print.
Although this is my typical work process, I’m here for my clients! If you want me to approach our work in a different way, feel free to let me know.
