Here are the various preliminary sketches and roughs that give insight to the process leading up to the final product.These are specifically for the fan art commissions and art pieces I do for clients.
Tsuyu and Ochako Rough Sketch
This is the first stage of this work, the immediate rough sketch. All sketches are done in graphite pencil.
Tsuchako AI Sketch
After the rough, the images converted to Adobe Illustrator and Image Traced to give it a better look when presenting to clients.
Tsuyu and Ochako Line Art
The image is traced on Adobe Illustrator afterwards. Some elements may be added later but for the most part, this is the wireframe for the piece.
Tsuyu and Ochako First Color
The immediate color stage, done in AI with Live Paint.
Tsuyu and Ochako Detail Lines
These addition are just simple strokes placed to more easily convey further detail in the image. This is the last step before added transparency layers and gradients finish the piece.
Tsuyu and Ochako Final
And then then added effects in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator give the piece more vibrancy. This is how all commissions are completed.
