Project Description

During my second semester in the Biomedical Visualization program, I took an illustration course that among other things, taught me how to paint in Photoshop. For our second assignment, we were instructed to prepare our first full color, digital instructional rendering of a physiology or pathology concept or process for a slide lecture. The subject needed to exhibit good form, with the use of a strong primary light source as well as a secondary light source or reflected light. I chose to depict a hemorrhagic choroidal detachment that would show the pathology on both a macro and micro-level and thought that rendering the hemorrhage nebulous-like and actively filling a cross-sectioned choroidal bulge would help bring the story to life.
