Digital Illustration

Digital illustrations are produced with the use of digital tools to under the direct manipulation of the creator. They are different from computer-generated art, which is produced by a computer using mathematical models created by the artist. Digital or computer illustrations are also distinct from digitally manipulated photographs, in that they are original constructions "from scratch".

There are two main types of tools used for digital illustrations: raster and vector applications. Raster applications are commonly called "painting" programs; vector applications are called "drawing" programs.
