WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM TOM SHERRILL ILLUSTRATIONS:
- Based on your communicated needs and the information you provide (listed in PART I below) I will work with you to find the price that best meets the specifications of your project.
- I will submit a written proposal/agreement spelling out my commitment to you.
- Once I get back the signed agreement and a retainer fee (a percentage of the quote) I will also need to receive the additional information (listed below in PART II). I will then generate several views for you to consider and choose from, and send them to you for your approval.
- After you have made your choices, I will communicate clearly as my team and I work on the rendering - sending samples of progress so that your design team can give input as needed. Because I am skilled at reading plans, I can often help you to nail down details, troubleshoot problems, and/or refine designs. After several rounds and clear agreement, we will proceed upon your approval.
- Changes to the drawing, or re-design of your project made after approval may result in added fees. I will clearly communicate any changes in price for this or other reasons (such as changes in deadlines or added scope).
- Upon completion of the illustrations, I will deliver the images via email or FTP , as well as send an invoice for the remainder of my fee.
- I will follow up to make sure that your clients were pleased… and that the artwork met your needs.
In order to create your architectural illustration, there are a few pieces of information I will need to receive from you or your company:
PART I(to create your custom quote)
- A site or floor plan (these can be vector files like CAD or SketchUp or raster image file formats such as PDF, JPEG, TIF, etc.)
- Elevations or photos of the architectural style.
- Indications of the view you want to see (pedestrian view, aerial view, etc.).
- Whether you want a day or night scene.
- The Level of Finish (Concept Sketch, Refined Sketch, Technical Art, or High Finished Artwork) you need.
- The medium (pen and ink, marker, water color, digital or hybrid) you want.
- Your time-frame.
PART II(to complete your illustration)
This information will be needed when the artwork begins :
- color samples
- paint chips
- fabric swatches
- brick samples
- cut sheets
and all specific instructions and/or reference material.
The timely submission of these items will determine my ability to meet your deadlines.
I look forward to the collaborative process…and to creating a rendering of your designs.
