Commission work – Murasaki chan

Have not post much art recently, but recently I had the great pleasure of doing this piece of commission art by Vedrana to create Murasaki chan for her ^O^ blog

So the process started via some e-mailing back and forth — it’s easier that way to keep track of what is needed to be drawn, each piece of work I do differ from client to client, depending on what they intend to use it for and how much detail, if they need a background or just transparent… :) So when some terms and pricing are agreed upon, I work on a rough sketch to show. Most of the time I request for half or a percentage the payment first when I start work, i.e. show a sketch.

Next step I use Sai to “ink” a cleaner image out to be coloured later (What is Sai?) I use red as it stands out over the rough sketches. I change the line colour to black and remove the layer of rough sketch. Much cleaner this way. I also make corrections and adjustments along the way and e-mail previews to show Vedrana :)

Fast forward… lol! This is close to the final version :) Usually before I get paid in full, I will splash “sample” text across the image. Vedrana had kindly gave me permission to post the art of her mascot :D

At the final stage, any changes which require me to redraw will cost extra, I will still be able to tune/change some colours if needed. But luckily for us, Vedrana liked the final result! :D I only need to change the eye colour ;)

Thanks again Vedrana! It’s great pleasure working with you! I hope you like  2D Murasaki chan :3!
