An illustration is a visualization or a depiction made by an artist, such as a drawing, sketch, painting, photograph, or other kind of image of things seen, remembered or imagined, using a graphical representation.
At Vanilla Rain we use artistic techniques to develop and execute interpretations of the concepts of authors and clients to specifications. We do book illustration, fashion illustration, map illustration, rendering, exhibit preparation, story boarding, textual layout, scientific drawings, cartooning and so much more.
We mainly make use of pencil and pen to start the development of an illustration and then further the process with watercolour, gouache, ink, oil, charcoal, chalk and various other artistic techniques as requested by clients. It is also common to take the sketch into a digital space where we colour or vectorise it depending on the client's brief. We do everything illustration wise, with professional and artistic execution.
We also do character design, comic books and storyboarding.
