When someone contacts me about a job, I first talk to them about what they want and what their ideas are before even talking about money or anything else.
I want to know what the project is about, who the intended audience is, and what type of a product they want in the end. I belive that knowing all these things helps me as the artist to deliver a better product at the end.
Once all the details have been negotiated, I work on whatever type of mockup or design is needed. This could be a drawing, an diagram, or a working mockup depending on the product.
Usually, the client and I go through multiple iterations to make sure that I am going to create exactly what they want in the shortest amount of time.
After the client has approved a final design, I start development. While I am working, I like to send frequent updates to the client just to tell him/her how the product is progressing.
During this time, the client can send me any changes needed, and, if it is a script or program, can test and review the work so far.
Once the project is finished and I send the finished product to the client and we take a couple days to review it and check for errors. After that, I send the product to them packaged in a nice way.
If it is a video product I usually send a package containing multiple versions of the video in different resolutions and formats so that it can be played almost anywhere. If it is a script, addon, or program, I send the files over in a well-labeled package so that it can be installed or sold right away.
