PROCESS: A Superior View into the Right Ventricle
The main goal of this project was to illustrate an organ from an unconventional view, in order to help better understand an aspect of the anatomy. I chose to visualize a superior view into the right atrium and showcase the tricuspid valves.
Anatomy lab sketches
I began with sketches of a human heart in the anatomy lab. At this stage, my goal was to gain a better understanding of how the anatomy of the heart looked from different angles.
I created and cleaned up 3D maquettes obtained from CT scans and anatamography to get a sense of how the cut surface of the right atrium should look like, as well as the opening of the right ventricle.
Referencing my sketches from the anatomy lab and the 3D maquettes, I illustrated a line drawing of the heart.
My goal in this step was to render realistically and to accurately depict live tissue. I referenced a number of textbooks and surgical videos to match the colour and texture of a live human heart.
