Children’s book illustrator here and some animation too.
I've had the pleasure and joy to work some independent and traditional publishers over the years, so I know what I'm doing :)
My fee compacts everything you'll need for a children's book along with some extras:
• Rough Sketches of all the pages.
• Character Designs.
• Final renders of the the illustration pages.
• Front and Back Cover
• Graphic Design: Layouts and Text of all pages.
For the work process:
• I will have received you're amazing script, read it and imagine the best way to portray it through illustration.
• Then after reading it for the 1000th time I will start rough sketching and storyboarding the entire book including my text layouts.
• After all the hard decision making I shall go forth and render the rough styled sketches and produce coloured versions for you.
Usually the Duration per-book is 1-2 months, depending of the quantity of illustrations needed.
If you have any queries and special requests please don't hesitate to ask.
