Illustrations in movies and TV shows can play an important role in telling the story better or simply make it eye-pleasing for the audience and here’s a list of some really good ones you shouldn’t miss out on!
Illustrations are when an artist depicts his visualisation through a sketch, drawing, or through graphic design. We've often found these illustrations on Instagram, we've seen them in ads or even on wedding cards and if really done well, they look quite pleasing to the eye and they're oddly satisfying. Since illustrations work best in illuminating visual images, they obviously have made their way to visual storytelling as well. You might have seen illustrations in movies and TV shows that instantly caught your eye. These either work as enhancers for the whole story or are a character in themselves.
For example, some of them might be used during the introduction or when the end credits roll but some come into the story from time to time to unfold the plot even more or play the role of a time and place marker. A lot of illustrations these days either leave easter eggs about what could happen in the story or summarize every single thing that you saw in the episode. Illustrations in the web-series 'Little Things' or in the famous rom-com 'Hum Tum' even help the main protagonists express their feelings better which also builds a better connection with the audience.
