The Pink Book
Week 4: More anatomy (my brain is melting). However, this week we had to illustrate and finalize samples from the museum. I didn’t expect it would be as time consuming as it was. The purpose of the three illustrations are to get down proportion, have solid clean lines, and no shading. I found it especially challenging since a. I typically have a very ‘sketch-like’ illustration style; b. because I haven’t used traditional media in a looooong time; and c. because I am a procrastinator.
I chose: i. root of the neck, ii. left and right ventricles of the heart, and iii. anastemosis around the knee (posterior). AKA lots of detail and many many lines in each one lol - jeez, for the first assignment, I really didn’t give myself much of an ease-in.
And yes, heart illustration ‘pre-sketch’ was in last week’s little post :)

A lot of things to study, all I can do is “sigh”.
