Illustration is something that illustrated, (pictorial to explain something or to solve problem with visual). Today, illustration mostly created in digital techniques (vector, digital painting, etc), but many illustrator still using traditional techniques (pencil, pen ink, watercolor, etc). Mostly, digital illustrator have a strong traditional skill too.
Illustrator have a unique talent, because you know what? they are artists (illustration is in art direction zone), but not every artist can make illustration.
Simple tips for a beginner who want to learn illustration:
1. Find an professional illustrator, many of them like for sharing their own progress or sharing a tutorial. Follow their step, it's ok if it just for learning purpose. You'll find your own style overtime. Illustrator is like a chef, you can't make your own recipe if you don't have enough skill and experience right?
2. At first, don't using computer to learn illustration, just drawing in your paper with your favorite tools,until now, I usually using mechanical pencil and Rotring Rapidograph. This is great to increase your feeling.
