It's the end of the month, so it's time for another (small) image dump! School has been keeping me excessively busy and sleep-deprived, but i really should try to update as i go...
Anyway, here is the final surgical sequence i have been working on. It's been through maaaaany revisions, but there will be more changes, i'm sure (aka getting feedback from professor tomorrow morning...). The surgical illustration course has been a painful one thus far because of the importance of tiny details (e.g. sutures with thickness = bane of my existence). But at the same time, i feel like it somewhat suits my obsessive nature lol!
Aortic valve replacement
graphite on paper, each 11x14" + labels in Adobe Illustrator CS4
i am currently working on a layout that combines a couple of these steps, and i'll be producing a full greyscale tonal render of this soon (translation: it's due next week...)
