Illustration clean-up / Re-draw
Clean-Up: In this process, I will separate the illustration from the background, and clean up all lines, get rid of all the color bleeds and pencil marks. I recommend this option if you like the texture of the illustration. This option is not good if you plan to print t-shirts, puzzles, etc.
Digital Redraw: In this process, I will redraw all of the illustrations digitally. With this process, you will get a line art version of all the illustrations and the final illustration. that will be used for your book. The line art can be used as coloring pages for free downloads or a future coloring or activity book. This option is the best if you would like to print any illustrations on a product, such as t-shirts, stickers, puzzles, or large character cutouts. This option is not good if you want to keep the texture of the illustration.
