Now we need to know the story you want to tell. It is ideal to have, in addition to the manuscript, a description of each scene that needs to be illustrated. Details such as the location and description of the characters are very important. The more specific you can get with the descriptions, the easier it will be for our artists to deliver the exact picture that you envision for your book.

Then, we go on to inking and coloring the scenes. In this stage, the corrections are minor (since they will require re-drawing). At this stage, if you need major revisions to details or characters that were pre-approved, there will be an extra charge for this work.
