1. High Quality Image
Sending a high quality image is the most important step, the better quality of the image the more details can be added in the drawing process.
2. Line Work
Every line down to each strand of hair is drawn out by hand to ensure high quality line work and smooth details when the final colors and shading are added.
3. Base Colors
The basic colors are added into the line-work based on whether the client wants it realistic or not. Keep in mind with custom designs the client can request anything to be portrayed, eg different colors, background elements, type, and more. Many clients prefer the realistic cartoon vector style, but requests can be made for extra design with a fee.
4. Shadows and Highlights
Shadows and highlights are added to give dimensional detail to the piece and give it a realistic yet cartoon graphic appearance.
5. Final Digital Design
Taking into account the clients wishes and thoughts for the piece we add final background/ foreground details.
6. Final Product
DTG (Direct to Garment) print on apparel for highest color and detail quality.
