Style 27

This style for illustration is a semi-realistic illustration style. The coloring medium used by our famous children book illustrator is detailed digital coloring, which appears very soft. These illustrations are done manually after the sketch. The characters drawn in this style have a realistic proportion of the body but are semi-realistic in appearance. The face of the characters is not completely real. Our famous children book illustrator used considerable elements from nature in the background but background usually is not the focus. Focus is generally on face and action of the character. The animals, as well as human characters, appear nicely in this style. The expression of the characters is not very loud; they are also soft and go well with the rest of the setting of the illustrations. Very Bright colors are usually not used in this style of illustration; the preference is more towards the soft colors because the scene will have as natural colors as possible with mostly natural objects but will still appear vibrant. These illustrations are a treat to watch by the reader. These illustrations focus on the characters and the coloring is done very close to life-like images. This style is especially suitable for memory books/albums or characters based on photos. The characters are a bit real looking. The characters can also actual photographs. Many Authors prefers to use real-life characters as the main character for their stories. The action performed by the characters is captured in a way so that it looks totally real. The background use is very limited because the main attention is brought to the action and expression of the character in the illustration. The colors used are very soft and the skin color is also made very real. It is suitable for both young kids as well as old people as the main character. The objects like the bed, table, dolls, etc are also made in a way that they appear real and not cartoonish or semi-realistic in appearance. The expressions are very important in these picture book illustrations and mostly kids make the main character of the story, so it becomes even more important to capture their real expressions and to bring the illustrations to life. This style of illustration is suitable for all genres of children books and can find a good place in children’s book cover illustrations also because of its appealing nature. It’s suitable for all age group of children and young adults.
