When we say patent illustration, we mean the art of replication of a real object or a functional model of a system into a 2-dimentional image for better understanding by the common man. Nowadays it has become important to have illustrations attached with your patent application and these illustrations are then referred to as patent illustrations. In India the patent law demands the addition of at least one drawing if at any point within the application an illustration can explain better. It is highly advantageous for the applicant to make his/her patent more convincing with the help of illustrations.
Yes, it is very much true leaving aside the case of a chemical compound composition. In all the other fields of invention one can add a drawing or two. The examiner can understand the invention in a crystal clear way mainly through the illustration. If the illustration is not able to do justice to explaining, the examiner is sure that it is not in the patent. Therefore a neat and clear illustration has all the power to make or break this deal of attaining the patent. This explains that most people actually are picture oriented, rather than being word oriented. An invention speaks for itself only through a well done up illustration. Here is where an illustrator comes in.
