Tell Your Story to the Illustrator
Most companies will have a basic form to be filled out by the author about your book and preferences before assigning an illustrator to you.

Accordingly, an illustrator will be assigned to your book. Blueberry Illustrations provide royalty-free, original illustrations based on your story.

Make sure you have a look at the various illustration styles offered by these companies, so you can be confident that your illustrations will be just like how you want them.
Get your story sketches done
Once your requirements and preferences are all organized, the illustrator will begin the work. You will be given a planned time frame for all the illustration styles for children. To start, the illustrator will send you the first pencil sketch of the book for your feedback. It will be a pencil sketch but will be good enough to give you a good idea of how your characters are turning out and the general look and feel of the illustration and its composition. You can give your approval to continue on the remaining sketches on the same lines or if you have any tweaks that you want in the characters, it can be done at this time. All the remaining pencil sketches will be sent to you within the stipulated time frame. Any modifications if you have, will be done at this stage in the pencil sketches itself as making the changes later on after color is very difficult and requires a lot of rework.
Coloring process of your final Illustrations
Here in this step, your illustrator would start color rendering of the pencil sketches of your story which were approved by you. Any color preferences given by the author will be duly implemented and the coloring will closely follow the illustration style chosen by you earlier. The illustrations will come live and vivid with coloring.
