Features of Digital Illustration

By John S Kenny

Digital illustration finds its application in several areas where information through computer is delivered. With the advent of advanced digital technology, the demand for digital illustrators has highly increased. If you are new to this field and wants to know the benefit or pursuing it as your career accomplishment, then this article is the best place for you to know about everything regarding digital illustration. It is actually an innovative technique through which you can create original artwork and convert them in digital form.

Digital illustration has replaced the traditional need for hand drawing and thus is capable of giving more flexibility for the new emerging illustrators to combine their skills and knowledge with all the available advanced tools and software to create highly appealing computer arts. You can make use of innovative image editing software and illustration techniques to create digitally enhanced images that become more realistic and accurate when completed. While creating unique art forms with the help of computer, you can enhance your skill in providing better visual impact to the illustrations in shorter time. You can utilize more advanced digital tools, including the 3D features to create 3 dimensional models of life forms and nature. You can also manipulate the digitally enhanced art work in such a way that it can be corrected and edited easily. You can add or delete images so that it gives you better control on them.

A digital illustrator is trained with the knowledge of using all the available digital tools of today and is updated with newer features added day by day. They make use of graphic tablet and other digital features to create amazing artworks. An illustrator can draw on the graphic tablet with a pen attached to it through the computer. You can also use the mouse of the computer for creating digital illustrations. But in most cases, the pen provides more control in drawing than the mouse. The graphic tablets are also designed with better pressure sensitivity that enhances the comfort for drawing. You can either use a raster based digital illustration or vector based illustration. Drawing software is mostly vector-based and the image editing software being raster-based.

The Digital Art Photography and Illustration Revelation

By Imuzeze Usidame

The Digital Art Photography Revolution: The term "digital art photography" has been made popular in recent times, due to the use of application software that can greatly enhance the final look of a printed photograph.

Definition Of An Art File: An art painting, either in oil or any other medium, can be photographed with a digital camera and the digital file is opened on any software that can enhance the resolution of the print. These software programs have been used lately, by experts to enhance digital photography to such an extent that the result prints look appreciably better than the original art painting itself. A lot of people have been testifying to the fact that art photography enhanced by these software programs, bring out a lot more detail of an art painting than may be instantly observable on the original.

Places To Get These Free Software Programs: To get a software program that can digitally enhance the final print of your photography, you may type "photography software programs" or "digital photography enhancement" on any search engine and you will find relevant software programs that you may download for free, with all its functionality. Try the functionality one after the other, to find the functionality that produces the best result. You may also go to help topics to find tutorials on how to effectively use them.

Website To View Typical Enhanced Digital Art Photography And Make Some Money: You can purchase art photography files, at sites that offer good quality products whose prints you can be sure will be beautiful. Some sites offer limited prints for their files that is their files are programmed in such a way that the buyer can only print as many as he or she has paid for. Some sites also provide ready made prints that are transported to the buyers address framed or unframed. There are also a few sites that offer unlimited number of prints but they do not sell in this type of format to a large number of buyers, usually a few buyers before they revert to the more recognized format of limited prints. You should also learn as you view these sites by comparing their products with what you are working on.

When you decide to buy the works you may do so and you may print the art files and observe this phenomenon for yourself and eventually make it a decoration work or you may print numerous copies and give to your friends as a gift of love or to promote your site.

Digital Art: Explore Illustration

By Rich Goldman

Digital illustration is big business these days. A quick look at roadside billboards, club flyers or magazine covers should be enough to convince anyone that the art of the digital designer has never been in higher demand, and its popularity just keeps on growing.

But defining exactly what digital illustration is proves tricky. We all know what the words mean, yet the myriad of ways in which illustration can be applied makes it one of the most versatile of the creative arts and as such, it's pretty difficult to pin down.

With a strong creative vision and the right software, concepts can be articulated in limitless ways; each style opening new doors for expression. The one crucial skill that ties it all together is the need for some innate artistic ability. You don't need to be a virtuoso with a pencil to be good at computer art, but there's no doubt that most professional illustrators are proficient with traditional art techniques.

The basics of image structure are the same across mediums, after all, and with software increasingly able to mimic traditional drawing methods, the transition to digital has become almost seamless. Let's take a closer look at the main branches of digital illustration and discover a little more about how the experts put them together.

Vector art

It's no great accident that vector illustration is currently one of the trendiest and easily recognisable of the digital art disciplines. The signature flat colours and clean lines are easy to spot and quick to grab attention, which of course makes the style hugely popular with advertisers looking to catch the eye of potential consumers. In addition, their reduced colour palettes and scalable technology means they are perfect when it comes to artwork for the Web.

Created with precision by manipulating Bezier paths, the mechanics of vectors are based on mathematic principles that make them infinitely scalable without suffering degradation. This trait is extremely attractive to illustrators because it means images can be shrunk to a stamp or stretched to a billboard, without having to be redone. Paths are also easy to edit at a later stage, making vector images quick to tweak and rearrange if need be.

Vector shapes are often produced with photographs or hand drawn scans as templates, digitally tracing as much of the outline and detail as needed. Programs such as Flash can even create vectors automatically by tracing over photographic or pre sketched material, allowing picture elements to be created quickly and with little effort. However, the real artistry comes when choosing which elements to take to the digital image, and knowing how to colour and arrange the final illustration.

Keeping up to date is crucial and, since digital artists typically spend hours in front of a screen involved in their masterpieces, it's all too easy to become isolated from what's going on around you. Styles ace constantly changing and trends can come and go at great speed, so keeping your finger on the industry pulse is vital. Not only does it make good commercial sense, but it can also act as a rich muse from which to draw ideas

Mixing media

While vector art focuses on clean shapes, simple forms and bold chunks of colour, other digital illustration techniques take things in the opposite direction. Since the arrival of Photoshop in 1990, artists have been able to digitally manipulate photographic material and combine it with other visual ingredients, and when layers arrived with Photoshop 3.0 five years later, the stage was set for a new form of digital image. In 1995, digital photo illustration was born.

Based on the traditional method of using scissors and glue to cut and paste photos and artwork together in new arrangements, it's a technique that has always been popular with children but has now become the favoured strategy of many an adult illustrator. This is primarily due to Photoshop's specialised, yet accessible and intuitive, toolset, but also reflects the success the strategy can have when attempting to convey a complicated collection of ideas.

Sketching toons

While everyone knows that Photoshop is the king of detailed mixed media illustration, less well known is the fact that it's also astonishingly good at producing line and comic style artwork. Deftly sidestepping the need to use intricate filters and effects, the hand drawn, hand coloured look is gaining favour with artists and art directors alike.

Because of the time saving tools that Photoshop offers, professional comic book artists are beginning to use the software to colour their hand drawn sketches and are taking digital art into previously unexplored areas. Using a mixture of both hand drawn and digital painting, new styles are surfacing that are making a massive impact on the established illustration industry.

Realer than real?

But for many artists, the Holy Grail of computer art is realism. Recent advances in graphics technology have enabled software developers to accurately simulate
real world drawing and painting tools by modelling how inks, chalks, oils and paints behave when they are applied to different surfaces. Using random particles to create natural looking strokes on simulated materials, you can now produce painted images that are all but indistinguishable from their hand made equivalents.

Since you can also grab a graphics tablet and paint directly onto your digital canvas, digital painting is less a description of an illustration style and more a literal possibility. As well as further mimicking the traditional within the digital arena, it's also easy to pick up and get started. To this end, having some experience with real world painting is a definite advantage.

Because the technology behind natural media is so intricate, there are only a handful of programs that can actually achieve believable results. The most specialised is Corel Painter, which takes the possibilities to extremes by providing an array of simulated traditional drawing and painting tools. It even goes so far as to model the way that watercolour Paints behave when wet, with drips, runs and splashes. However, with some crafty brush creation and expert manipulation of layers, equally exciting effects can be replicated in your humble copy of Photoshop.

Pixel power

But although illustration software is advancing, it would be a mistake to think that the industry is focussing purely on pushing the undiscovered boundaries of digital imaging. In among the simulated paintings, clean vectors and intricate photo collages, a resurgence of old school pixel techniques is proudly celebrating the humble beginnings of computer art.

Pixel illustration is arguably where the whole digital illustration shebang began, back in the days when computer screens could only display a small number of colours at a low resolution. But, like so many limitations, this situation forced creativity and produced a unique style that's now being snapped up in an industry that's constantly on the lookout for something different.

Because low resolutions mean large pixel sizes, pixel art uses geometric rules that ensure perspectives are correctly maintained . A by product of this is the familiar isometric view that's so common in this style of illustration, yet it does lend itself surprisingly well to conceptual art.

Pixel art continues to gain momentum, with increasing numbers of advertising and editorial commissioners looking to capitalise on its retro style designs. The bold use of colour and scrutinising detail also make it ideal for clients wishing to attract close attention and its popularity shows no signs of slowing.

Make it yours

With so many creative styles to work with, there are many entry points into the world of digital illustration. If you already own an imaging package, then you've got all the tools you need to get started. The disciplines we've delved into cover the majority of styles that are suited to computer art, but who knows what some hot new illustrator will come up with tomorrow. The range of software available combined with the sheer diversity of human experience, means that there is unlimited opportunity for individual expression.

So if you think you could be the next big thing then don't delay because, whatever your style, now is your chance. The hipness of digital illustration is just beginning to break into the consciousness of the mainstream and there's never been a better time to explore your creative potential.

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.
Guillaume Apollinaire

All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Among these temples there is one which far surpasses all the rest, whose grandeur of architectural details no human tongue is able to describe; for within its precincts, surrounded by a lofty wall, there is room enough for a town of five hundred families.
Hernando Cortes

Any architectural project we do takes at least four or five years, so increasingly there is a discrepancy between the acceleration of culture and the continuing slowness of architecture.
Rem Koolhaas

Borne out of this, starting around the 17th Century was the Baroque era. It is my view that it is one of the architectural peak periods in western civilisation.
Harry Seidler

Even though I build buildings and I pursue my architecture, I pursue it as an artist. I deliberately keep a tiny studio. I don't want to be an architectural firm. I want to remain an artist.
Maya Lin

For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
James Rouse

I am but an architectural composer.
Alexander Jackson Davis

I hope that America as a whole, and especially its architects, will become more seriously involved in producing a new architectural culture that would bring the nation to the apex - where it has stood before - and lead the world.
Tadao Ando

Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.Le Corbusier

The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
Frank Lloyd Wright

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.
Philip Johnson

There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at, sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk through
Dan Rice

Architecture is a social act and the material theater of human activity.
Spiro Kostof

Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
Coco Chanel

Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul
Ernest Dimnet

An architect is the drawer of dreams
Grace McGarvie

Architecture is music in space, as it were a frozen music
Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling

Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
