My Drawing Process

This a quick guide to what my drawing or design process entails and what to expect when proceeding with using my services.  I will break it down into illustration type and steps required for each. 

Bespoke Bicycle Illustrations.

1. Order confirmation

Before placing an order i do invite enquiries if you are unsure about what happens and what i require to produce the finished products.  When an order is confirmed by placing a full payment or deposit via the store listing i begin the process.   

2. Image & information request including research stage.

You will get an email from myself requesting images and information relating to the order.  As an example for the bicycle illustrations i require an image of the bike or a link to a website featuring the bike with crank side facing the camera.  Any customised or unique parts are discussed for inclusion.

I then research and compile all the parts to draw them up accurately.  This can take a bit of time but ensures the illustration is drawn up to the high standards that i am satisfied with.

3. Illustration drawing stage. 

Each part is meticulously drawn in my signature bold line art style.  Details are carefully omitted or including depending on how they balance the image.  I use high end Adobe Illustrator software and various tools and methods to create my artwork.

The parts combine to become a final artwork piece.  I normally place in my recommended background colour to allow the subject to pop a bit more on the image.  You can however choose whichever colour you prefer or go with my popular neutral tone.

4. Client proof approval.

I send a low resolution design proof of the artwork via email to get your approval before any finalising or printing takes place.  This ensures you are a happy with the illustration.  If an outstanding payment is due it is taken at this point before anything is printed or sent.
