Stuart Holroyd is a Commercial Illustrator for Film & TV. You will see his work on multiple platforms via many different studios and media outlets.
Stuart is also an avid NFT supporter, releasing his own collections whilst supporting other artists and institutions.
Digital illustration is the creation of visuals by use of digital tools. These tools include software and apps such as Photoshop and Procreate, using a drawing tablet and a stylus pen.
Almost all artwork you see in the Film and TV industry is done digital, even if it looks traditional (e.g paper and pencil).
Stuart's clients include Discovery Channel, Warner Brothers and many more.
Stuart comes from a business ownership background, running multiple financial groups.
Rather than having a set price for projects or artwork, he treats every client differently, using and transferring specific skill sets over to the art world that have not been used before.
Each client is unique and each project is fully bespoke however, Stuart does have a baseline process that helps keep the overarching process at a good level of progression.
It starts with the design of the clients artwork, using references and (and stock photos, if required). Once the mock-up is reviewed and approved, he then starts on sketching out the linework. After this comes final line work and then moves over to colour blocking. Once the blocking is done, Stuart then starts to add larger details, working his way to very small ones until the artwork is ready for the final rendering and tiny details.
The final stage is colour grading the artwork to match the tone and feel the client requires.
This whole process takes between 50-300 hours, depending on the complexity of the artwork.
