Project Description

In medicine and surgery, a recurring limitation is that a clear standard anatomical view is not always possible. The challenge of this assignment was to depict a structurally accurate and realistically illuminated section of anatomy that was either not directly observed or was not already presented in a conventional anatomical view. Various references were used in creating this image, including Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy, Elsevier’s Complete Anatomy, and dissections. This view of the female pelvis highlights the pelvic organs and their relation to the pelvic cavity. The piece was first rendered in greyscale to preserve the lighting, then colourized with exaggerated natural tissue hues to imitate the appearance of a living body.
