How We Make Our Illustrations! - Enjoying a Cursed Pie



Have you ever wondered how we make the illustrations for our board games?


We'll take you through the process, step-by-step!



Step 1 - Very rough sketch



















First, I sketch up the idea for the card. I'm not amazing at drawing... obviously, so I don't spend any time trying to perfect the sketch. I just want to get the idea across!


Step 2 - Finalized Sketch



















Next, I hand the very very very rough sketch over to my mom (the artist) who actually knows how to draw well. She makes a finalized sketch!


Step 3 - Digital tracing



















Then, I scan her sketch into my computer. I then trace every line of her sketch using a program called Adobe Illustrator.


Step 4 - Add color




















In the next step, I need to add color. At this point the illustration is starting to better, however it is still very flat and boring.


Step 5 - Shading and lighting



















Here is where all the magic happens. I add shading and lighting, which makes the illustration pop!


Step 6 - Finishing touches



















The last step is to add all the details, such as the background, and other small things.
