Digital Art Projects > Botanical Illustration Project

Digital Illustration: The goal of the project is to create two botanical-based illustrations: first an illustration of a bouquet of flowers in a glass jar that focuses on reflection, transparency, and light; second a scientific botanical illustration based on the flowers within the bouquet that focuses on text, visual mapping, and research.

Using Adobe Illustrator, students will use following tools and techniques for both parts: shape manipulation, line thickness variation, create and use art and scatter brushes, manipulate gradients, utilize transparent layering techniques, use the clip mask tool, create color guides & swatches, and add textures.
