Karine did a wonderful job on my first children’s picture book. Her characters brought my book to life and she was always willing to make changes. She was very helpful, as I was a novice, with the formatting process and she was always very prompt answering my emails and finishing the illustrations. I always felt she was invested in my story and it showed in the illustrations. I will certainly use her again!

Details: Commercial • 11 - 20 illustrations • What the illustrator recommends • At the pro’s location

Karine is fantastic to work with. She has the ability to take my ideas and create exactly what I wanted, but even better than I had imagined. Her attention to detail is amazing. I cannot even begin to express how happy I am with my book, that could only come to life with her illustrations. I highly recommend Karine if you want a true professional to handle your project.

Karine exceeded what I expected to be possible as she interpreted and conveyed my story book in unique and artistic illustrations. She is professional and very well priced. I will go back to Karine for future projects as collaborating with her was an enjoyable experience.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I estimate an entire project upfront based on a per-illustration cost. Most illustration projects are in the 120$-180$ range, depending on: 1. Illustration Style - cartoon, realistic, whimsical. 2. Illustration Medium - watercolor, digital, pencil. 3. Illustration Details - number of characters per page, background details.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. FREE TRIAL: We create a free trial sketch so customers can estimate our working quality and speed BEFORE signing a contract and making any payments. 2. SCRIPT AND DESCRIPTION After confirming the trial sketch, we require a story script and detailed description for each illustration to start the project. 3. PREPAYMENT: In addition, 50% prepayment is required before proceeding to the main project. 4. SKETCHING: Within a week or so, we provide sketches of the entire project for a preview. 5. COLORING: After approving the sketches, we begin the coloring stage. 6. FINAL PAYMENT: The customer makes the remaining 50% payment after the approval of the final colored illustrations. 7. LAYOUT & COVER DESIGN We also provide book layout and cover design services - wrapping up newly created illustrations in a beautiful book design.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    2005 – 2010 ABD in Fine Arts, State Pedagogical University of Armenia, Yerevan, Armenia. 2004 – 2005 Masters in Fine Arts, State Pedagogical University of Armenia, Yerevan, Armenia. 2000 – 2004 Bachelors in Fine Arts, State Pedagogical University of Armenia, Yerevan, Armenia
