The Illustrator program is a specialized program for graphic illustrators and makes digital illustration easier. Learning to draw is an important step of digital drawing. Throughout the course you will learn to draw directly on the Illustrator program, eliminating the need to draw on paper. Hand drawn illustrations can be scanned in and uploaded to Illustrator making them available for digital work.

Another part of the syllabus is learning about Illustrator’s impressive digital editing tools and animation software. These are used when working with vector lines and logos, digital illustration, adverts, sketches and advanced graphic illustration.
