After reviewing the materials and discussing with the client, my progress usually begins with a series of rough sketches to work out the concepts and compositions. I’ll then send 3 or so sketches to be approved. Once a sketch is chosen, I’ll work on a more detailed final sketch that may include any revisions the client has requested. Then, I trace out all the elements and hand paint them in watercolor or gouache. That way I can hand make all the washes and textures I am looking for. Those are then scanned into Photoshop, where I work digitally to color all the elements and put together the final composition!
