From a Sketch to the finished Illustration
My process begins with a detailed black and white sketch, capturing the anatomical nuances and key steps of the surgery. Through collaborative refinement rounds, we create an informative, visually compelling illustration. Once the sketch is approved, we proceed to the color and depth phase, incorporating a client-aligned palette and fine-tuning textures and colors to boost visual impact.
Throughout this process, client collaboration is critical to surpass expectations. We combine artistic expertise and client insights to produce surgery illustrations aiding in education, patient understanding, and medical documentation. Collaboration with the client is vital throughout the process to exceed expectations. Merging artistic expertise with valuable insights, we create illustrations that serve as powerful educational tools, aiding patient understanding, medical documentation, and professional presentations. From initial sketch to finished illustration, my goal is to deliver captivating, accurate visuals tailored to the specific procedures.

A Quote for your Project
At this stage, you'll supply me with any relevant information, images, and details needed for the illustration. You will then receive a preliminary pencil sketch via Email for your review. If needed, you can consult with your medical experts to ensure accuracy. I include two rounds of adjustments at this stage to make sure we're aligned.
After the sketch is approved, I will proceed to create a full-color illustration. From this point forward, I will work entirely digitally using a Wacom board, similar to the one depicted. Based on your feedback via email, I will refine and finalize the work. Two rounds of non-structural adjustments, such as color or texture tweaks, are included. Should additional rounds or significant changes be needed, these will be billed at my hourly rate. Of course, I will always inform you beforehand about any additional work that has not been approved.
