My commission process

The following steps can help you understand how I work through your commission(s).

1) I receive your reference material. 
In this example, I was given two photos to combine the two subjects into one illustration.

 

2) I then sketch the two subjects from each photo onto one piece of art, making adjustments in poses so it looks like the two were always together in a photo. I send off a photo/scan to you for approval before moving onto the final step:

3) The illustration is finalized using various media, from colored pencil, watercolor, to ink and markers; the choice of media depends on what the illustration needs to capture the results you seek. I then share a photo/scan of the piece with you for your last approval before I mail it off to you.
