What is Digital Illustration?

       Digital illustration uses digital tools, like a tablet or computer in collaboration with drawing software, to create art directly from the artist's hand. There are many different tools used by digital illustrators to create their art, and one of these is an iPad with an Apple pencil. These are the tools I use, combined with the drawing app, Procreate. With these tools, I make all my ideas and characters come to life in my art. I have access to all the colors I could ever want and all the brushes and pens I could ever imagine. Digital illustration is just another way an artist like me can create and share her art with the world!
