For this essential skills set lesson we looked at illustration.
what is illustration?- Illustration is creating an image to communicate a message or an idea. Illustration can be done in any medium as long as it is a visual representation of something. Examples of where illustration can be found may be in picture books, advertising, magazines, newspapers, instruction manuals, posters for gigs or movies, products like T-shirts or greeting cards and even in fashion and film. An illustrator is responsible for taking an idea and turning it into something visual.( martinagleeson 2018)
We looked at illustration to improve sketches and drawings and to widen creative skills in which we can use to create a more professional result in our work. This lesson showed me how to achieve professional drawing results with the use of different media like colour pencil and felt tip pen. I very much enjoyed this lesson as it was very helpful and beneficial.
