Illustrative realism is a style of art often used by commercial artists such as illustrators, designers, and graphic artists. Subjects are often rendered with techniques to help the images stand out strongly in digital and printed documents.

Traditional realism employs a variety of different drawing techniques, most of which attempt to represent living beings and objects as they appear in real life without stylization or distortion. Traditional realists are more likely to “suggest” contours through shading rather than render actual contour lines.
