The Process behind the Illustration Process

Anime Art Commission

looking for custom art?

Before getting started, we discuss your project and ideas through email. This is a good chance for you to describe your vision and for me to ask questions. I am also available to answer any questions you may have. I will give you an estimate of how long the artwork will take and we can discuss deadlines.

Once we've ironed out the details, I will provide a quote for your project and we procede from there.

Commission Art Process

A "commission"(ed) piece of art (or 'custom' artwork) is a piece of art that is drawn by me, but tailored to your desires. Basically, I will draw whatever you want!

Step 1: Describing & Payment

First, you would send me an email and describe the drawing that you want done. I need to know how many characters are part of the image and if you want a background or not. You would also tell me what medium you want me to use. I will give you a timeline to expect a sketch. We discuss price & payment is made.

Step 2: Sketching

When we begin I will sketch the picture for you and scan it to show you. Since it's in pencils at this point I will ask you for your opinion on the art and we work together to make it perfect by re-sketching and altering the art and sending you scaned samples of my progress. Until the pencil version looks perfect I will not move on to the refining phase. If you don't like the first sketch I send you at all then just let me know and I will crumple it and sketch out a new one for you! All major changes should be made before the artwork moves to the refining stage. I really don't mind sketching it over and over 5 times if it doesn't quite click the first few times so there really is no need to give me the "OK" on it until you really love it! After the art sketch looks right, then we move onto refining it.

Step 3: Refining and Colouring

After we both agree that the sketch is exactly as you wanted it, I will move into refining the line art and begin to add the colours. Depending on the medium you choose the colours can sometimes be flexible. You can specify the colour palette or I can choose the colours I feel are best for the work, it's up to you!

Step 4: Delivery

Depending on the medium you choose, the art can be delivered in several ways.

If you want a real person drawn into anime-style Please provide as many images as you can of the person you want me to draw. Art of existing characters should also be accompanied by reference photos. Please keep in mind that every artist has his or her own style of art. It is very difficult for an artist to mimic others art styles. If you employ me for your art I can attempt to mimic others styles and have done so in the past but it is not set in stone that it will work properly - It is possible that my style will still shrine through. This being said, I assume that when you employ me for your project that you enjoy my personal style of art.

I am a perfectionist with my work, and very flexible with the time it takes to complete them. I do ask that you please mention your due dates ahead of time! I may decline the job if the date is too close or if I have too many jobs ahead of you, but it is better then the date coming up and you having nothing to show for it! Right?

My personal comfort-zone limitations. What I will not draw:

I will not draw extreme blood & gore.
I will not draw hateful content (racism etc).
I will not draw children as sexual objects.
I will not draw animals in sexual scenarios or animal cruelty.
