Illustrations Overview


Illustration, it refers to all non-verbal pictures that appear in books or newspapers. Drawing which are not photograph are considered as illustration. In Malaysia, commercial illustration has begun to grow and flourish in the 90s. The high market demand for illustration creation was partly due to the limited functions of photography and digital skill at the time could not possibly fulfill high expectations of clients. This is where an illustrator came into the picture – to realize and execute every possible imagination with their illustration skills. However, a transition from conventional hand drawing technique to the latest digital art technique was taking place since the year 2000. Illustration production time was greatly reduced – thus fulfilling the need for greater quality and quantity of artwork in lesser time.
