PROCESS FOR CUSTOM ARTWORK

Once a package and requested size has been purchased, you will be contacted within 48 hours and an order form will be sent requesting details of your illustration, including up to 5 coloured photos for your customized artwork. 

2. Upon receiving your request the process begins with a hand sketch and transferred to a digital sketch using graphic design software and a stylus pen.   A preliminary draft is then produced and demonstrates vague detail and layout in colours requested and provides an insight into the direction of the drawing. Further details such as distinct features,  characteristics and detailed accessories including dimension will be present in the final artwork. Note: A preliminary draft is shared and approved within 1 month of a purchase, should there be any delays due to changes or work capacity you will be notified 

3. I work closely with you to ensure your vision and outcome is achieved and communication is on-going throughout the process - to see to it the clients brief is concise and clear. If required, I will amend the revision requested and provide the client with a final design and confirmation within 1 month. 

I allow 1 complimentary single round of revision on the first draft with no additional fee - any further revisions outside the scope of works or change of mind will be offered at an additional cost. Note: When ordering custom artwork for an event or known occasion please allow a lead time of 3 months. This ensures there is time for design and reviews.

 

4. Laslty I will add the finishing touches to the artwork and provide you with a final review for approval, before the drawing is packaged. Should the client (you) request any further changes that are non re - workable or outside the brief a quote will be issued for a re-draw or additional change.
