How comes an illustration into life?


The briefing defines the kind and style of the illustration, the target customers, planed usage and time plan. More points of interest are for example existing ideas of outworking and color feel, hints on competitors in your branche and also the exact requirements for reproduction.

Investigation and idea

Next step is an extensive phase of investigation. I catch impressions and background informations on site e.g. in the zoo, specialised literature, my own photo stock or of course the word wide web, draft ideas, proof and discard them just to the moment where one to three high quality concepts left over. This very intensive phase can take several hours up to days.


Based on the small drafts I develop a sketch that will show the composition, the caracter and the colour tone. You will receive this sketch for release. In this phase you could adjust details with your art editor or define change requests, which might be exactly constituted in a further sketch.

Final artwork

After your release of the sketch I'll do the final artwork. Now the illustration will be created in the ordered style based on the sketch. After finishing the artwork, more corrections and changements are only possible with a high invest, what emphasizes the importance of the sketch phase. When you accept the final artwork I deliver the illustration in the agreed manner.

Martina Nowak

As Bachelor of Media Engineering I started in 2008 the small business BELIONdesign for media design. First published illustrations on the child book market and as advertising cartoons followed in 2011.

Artistic work

Since 2017 I focus on my work as illustrator, cartoonist and artist. On Instragram you can see daily doodles with ink and watercolor drawings of Wala the baldibis.


The charme of rough paper, ink and feather so as watercolor gets me often to draw traditional. My enthusiasm for photography, composing and clear forms finds its tools in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.
