Project Description

The purpose of this illustration is to highlight details of a new type of glaucoma drainage device that could be displayed at a trade show booth at an ophthalmological convention. This device has a specialized valve that instantly drains excess aqueous humor from the eye’s anterior chamber into the deep conjunctival space where it is reabsorbed. The eye and device were created in ZBrush, posed in Cinema 4D, and painted over in Photoshop and Procreate for iPad.
