TADD 3100 Digital Illustration: Vector Art (2 credits)
Vector art is art made with vector illustration software like Adobe Illustrator. Vector artwork is built from vector graphics, which are images created with mathematical formulas. In comparison, raster art (also referred to as bitmaps or raster images) is created with colorized pixels. Enlarge pixel-based art in a raster file too much and it looks jaggy, whereas you can enlarge vector art to any size without negatively affecting its appearance. This resolution independence allows vector art to be used in a variety of forms, from small illustrations to massive billboards. This course is an exploration of digital illustration using vector graphics. Prerequisite(s): TADD 1150, TADD 1500. Liberal Education Goal Area 6.
