Mathematics articles can be greatly enhanced by the use of graphical illustration, these can often convey advanced concepts to a wide audience who may be put off by the heavy use of
mathematical symbols. Unfortunately the difficulty in creating illustrations and figures for publications (and Wikipedia) leads to a scarcity of useful pictures in Wikipedia articles. Graphic designers may require academic guidance from mathematicians and mathematicians may require assistance in graphic arts.
This subpage is devoted to the development of graphics supporting math-related articles.
Bill Casselman has written a book about Mathematical Illustrations that can be
downloaded free. At the bottom of that page is also a link to an
AMS article (as
PDF).
Although out of print, another source of inspiration is topologist George K. Francis' A Topological Picturebook (
ISBN978-0-387-96426-3).
Oleg Alexandrov (
talk) -- I like to draw pictures too, and have made
few. A picture is worth a thousand words as they say. :) Especially when illustrating abstract math concents.

geometry articles and replacing raster images with vector as appropriate.

POV-Ray, any sort of animated graphics and diagrams and some vector work. See
gallery for some past works.
