What Are the Types of Illustrations?
- Character Illustrations. This type of illustration doesn’t always have to involve a person or a human being, the character being illustrated could also be an animal or an inanimate object. The characters will serve as the mascot, which in turn can be used to represent a specific entity. The most tedious part when illustrating characters is having to capture the personality and bringing it to life.
- Spot Illustrations. Also known as object illustrations, these are graphic illustrations that involve standalone elements without the use of any background image, texture, or scene. The purpose of spot illustrations is to highlight the object and adding a personality to it. There are also instances when animals are used on spot illustrations.
- Icon Illustrations. This type of illustration is often confused with spot illustration since both involve standalone objects or beings as the element on the design. But, the difference with icon illustrations is primarily on its size. Icon illustrations are smaller and have less detail than spot illustrations, and these may even work in just a single color.
- Pattern Illustrations. A type of illustration that is very versatile and can be incorporated with the other types of illustrations. These are often used for backgrounds, wallpapers, or even product packaging. There are actually limitless possibilities on how one can make use of pattern illustrations, and it will only depend on the artist’s creativity.

What Are the Modes of Illustrations?
- Pencil Illustrations. One of the most popular modes of illustrations, and from the name itself, the medium used here are pencils. What’s great about using pencils for illustrating is that it allows the artist to create a variety of volume effects which include soft shadows to dark and heavy lines.
- Charcoal Illustrations. A somewhat similar mode of illustration, wherein it makes use of a medium that allows you to apply varying volumes of shadows and lines. The difference with using charcoal is that the lines are much darker and bolder than that of pencils, and these can be spread out by simply applying pressure with the use of a finger or a tissue. Though charcoal illustrations are harder to pull off than pencil illustrations, you can actually do more with it.
- Ink Illustrations. A rather advanced mode of illustration since the medium used is indelible. Once an artist makes the slightest mistake when doing ink illustrations, they will have to start all over again since the mistake can no longer be removed. Though inks are widely accessible and affordable, using it for illustrating would require utmost precision from the artist.
- Watercolor Illustrations. This mode of illustration primarily uses water-based pigments to achieve soft and slightly transparent effects on your artwork. With watercolor illustrations, the volume of the element will depend solely on the amount of water incorporated to the pigment.
- Acrylic Illustrations. Many artists would recommend this mode of illustration for beginners, mainly because acrylic paint is much easier to work with than watercolor or oil paint. But even so, an artist can still achieve the same effects as with watercolor and oil paint.
- Collage Illustrations. Much like collage photos, this mode of illustration is comprised of various images or artworks to form an entirely new illustration. The word collage is actually taken from a French word which means “to glue,” since collage images will require you to “glue together” different elements to come up with something.
