Vector Color Art

Technical illustrations are enhanced with the addition of color. The illustrations on this page are vector drawings done in Adobe® Illustrator®.


Color work done in Illustrator is much more complex than line work. Hundreds of individual shapes must be drawn and colored to create the illusion of light and shade. Accurate source material and reference is mandatory for the best results.


The only drawback to any vector drawing is that it's a single view—if changes are needed in the viewpoint, we start over from scratch.
