The Custom Illustrations Information Center

Illustrations are at the heart of any color book, and it’s important as an author to have a firm grasp on your custom illustration options. Here, we give you access to several resources to help you choose a level and style of illustration that best suits your book.

Available Levels of Illustrations

Personalized (Level 1)

These illustrations feature clean lines and uniform colors. Personalized is perfect for a straightforward, simplistic style that will add a classic look to any book. The art is colored digitally.

Fine Detail (Level 2)

This level of artistry adds basic shadows and highlights to objects and scenery to give illustrations a greater level of depth and dimension. The art is colored digitally.

Intricate Design (Level 3)

This level of art is created by hand and still consists of defining outlines but with varying degrees of line details. This is the only level that can be colored digitally or by hand.

Custom Quote

This option is for authors who are looking for highly rendered, hand-drawn or hand-painted illustrations. The absence of defined line art distinguishes this level from our three classic offerings.
