Project Description

This illustration was commissioned for marketing and advertising a procedure for fetoscopic repair of an open neural tube defect. The illustration showcases the procedure in a dramatic fashion, and the style emulates the realism of a ‘3D render’ without actually being generated in ‘3D” software. The illustration depicts the insertion of the fetoscope as guided by ultrasound, with the release of the placode and the closure of the defect as insets.
