After a work contract is finalized, I start off each project researching, and then sketching by hand. No matter the subject matter or final output, drawing is always a part of my work. I work from the material a client supplies, my own resources (anatomy and physiology textbooks and atlases), my own photo references, and my mind (drawing from my knowledge and creative problem solving). I start with thumbnails, and work to finished sketches or storyboards that are sent to the client for approval. This is the foundation for everything I create, and arguably the most important step, so accuracy, collaboration, and agreement are key.
Content Creation Phase
After sketch approval, I get right to work creating the project. This could be a wide range of services, but no matter the content, I maintain artistic and design standards while working in the style that is needed. I keep in contact with the client along the way to assure I am meeting their goals for quality, budget, and time. Once the project has reached a point where it is ready for delivery, I'll send it to the client for final approval.
Round of Revisions
After the "finished" creation has been reviewed by the client, I will do a round of revisions to further ensure the finished work fits their needs and goals. Sometimes this isn't necessary, but it's a critical step to creating the best content possible and maintaining accuracy, clarity, and style.
