Process of Illustration
The author usually divides his story and gives it to the Blueberry illustration team. Sketch 1 is done first and all the characters and general look and feel is approved in sketch 1 only. Once sketch 1 is done, remaining pencil sketches are done. The pencil sketches Blueberry do are fair and not rough. However, they are open to modifications during this phase, but changes of descriptions are not done at this stage. Once the illustrations are complete, you need to see that the whole book is well integrated in terms of its illustrations and have a continuous flow to it. This needs to be judged by you as a customer very minutely as this could make or break the deal for your readers in the long term.
