The Illustration Process
Choosing the right illustrator is an important part of the publishing process, and at SDP, we offer authors a terrific array of styles and genres when it comes to creating illustrations. You will have the opportunity to review samples from our team of children’s book and freelance artists, conference with the chosen artist and develop the artistic concept for your book.
The picture book illustrator will create initial sample sketches for author’s approval. Once the sketches are approved, the illustration process can begin. The artists may work with different mediums, from pencil to paint to complete digital drawing, but the overall procedure is consistent. The artist will offer several stages of sketching before moving to a tight, finished drawing and then, if applicable, to color application. Your project manager will work closely with you throughout each step, to help facilitate and organize the process.
In addition to providing artwork for the interior of your project, our freelance artists also will render cover illustrations. SDP offers a variety of cover illustration packages to help you achieve the perfect cover art for your book!
