The RMS Titanic
The greatest shipwreck disaster of the Millennium rises to the surface buoyed by hard facts! This infographic not only delineates the fate of the RMS Titanic but also the survivor stats. Visual is the way to go, and viewers can see for themselves how the first five sections of the ship flooded, lifting the stern out of the water and finally breaking the behemoth in two to sink into the abyss. It also sheds light on the injustice that transpired on board the ship. Only 38% of the first class passengers lost their lives, whereas 77% of the crew and 75% of the third class passengers gave up theirs! Passenger category, number aboard, number saved, and number lost are all represented graphically for maximum impact and lucid understanding.
The drawing process for the Titanic, an integral part of the infographic, started off with a detailed line rendition using Adobe Illustrator. Iconic features like the quartet of chimneys were given special attention.
With the first phase completed, the second stage entailed bringing the illustration to life with realistic colors that closely matched the original ship’s palette. The end deliverable is a realistic impression of the mammoth and impressive vessel.
