Illustration art usually depends on abstract lines and color combinations. Thus it allows the artists to extend their creativity by applying different lines and colors’ styles and techniques.
This is one of the reasons that makes the illustration art very different and challenging from other art fields such as photography which is based on existing scenes and objects.
The illustration art is similar to other artwork, it can be traditional using pencils, water colors and other traditional drawing tools or it can be digital using illustration applications such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The illustration art that is created on Adobe Illustrator is known as vector graphics. Unlike the bitmap images, the vector graphics depend on anchor points and paths that draw the shapes outlines, therefore the vector illustration art is resolution independent and you can scale it or modify using any vector based applications such Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw.
Both traditional and digital artwork have their own style and beauty as we will see in the below showcase. In these illustration art examples, you will find both traditional and digital artwork using different styles and creative concepts.
