A work of art in the visual arts is known to be a physical object that may be either two- or three- dimensional. Being professionally determined to fulfil a primarily independent aesthetic function, a work of art may be an illustration that is a decoration, visual explanation or interpretation of some text, process or concept, designed for integration in published media. Widely used in posters, magazines, flyers, books, teaching materials, video games, films and animations, illustrations can be created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software as well as any clip art.
Clip art as one of the variations of art is a popular term in the graphic arts. It is pre-made images that can be used to illustrate any needed medium. Today, clip art is world-widely used coming in many forms, both printed and electronic. Clip art has greatly evolved to include a lot of different content, illustration styles, licensing restrictions and file formats. Being usually composed exclusively of illustrations, none of the clip art includes the so-called “stock photography”.
The Artwork solution as an extension to the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application offers all its users the pre-made samples and templates of the professionally created illustrations as well as the stencil libraries full of vector clip arts depicting food, architecture, music, aquatic animals, funny animals, transport, and fauna. Assisting in creating illustrations in an artistic and fun style, all the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users can use the Artwork solution for making the needed drawings to use for their documents, websites, and presentations.
