Project Description

The primary goal of this assignment was to portray an anatomical structure from a unique perspective while creating a cutaway to reveal an aspect of its internal structure. The anatomy of the hand is complex, multilayered, and three dimensional. This illustration aims to connect what viewers can observe on the superficial skin of the hand with the internal structures such as muscles, nerves, and blood vessels. To emphasize the layered nature of the hand anatomy, a layer is removed after the index digit until the fifth digit. The illustration was intended for an anatomy atlas.
