message, statement or emotional expression, conveying personal experience,
historical accounts of the artist, political opinions as well as humorous message.
Illustrating comics using the illustrator software is suitable for all types of audiences
from children wanting to get creative to adults seeking a challenge or simply
satisfying ones self-enjoyment or interest.

Comics are commonly found within the movie industry, one main reason is due to the

organizing the frames. The technical or cinematic term is "Story Board".

through various techniques, tools and an array of watercolor pens and pencils etc.

Nowadays it is acceptable to illustrate with vector software offering spectacular
illustration techniques such as computerized graphics, giving depth and a sense
of motility by creating motion.

sketches; you can also reproduce the graphics using the software thus enabling you

and three dimensional effects, adding depth to the characters.

that are possible and create an animation in flash software.
