Tissue study: whole and cut muscle, circulatory structures

I'm gradually getting these done. Some of them are drawn from illustrated material so I can't take much credit. The point of the exercise is to become adept at drawing tissues in a recognizable way and studying how other illustrators handle this is a good exercise. I've used a few references that Paul and Joyce had compiled so thanks guys! Most of them I found perusing the surgical texts in the BMC library. I'm pretty sure I want to depict ileo-anal anstomosis with loop ileostomy for my final surgical pieces. We'll see how it goes... I still have to write the summary of the procedure and do a bit of research on it.

Tissue study: cut skin and subcutaneous adipose

The quality of the images isn't great because they were photographed instead of scanned. This is a really fun assignment. 6 sketches down, 21 to go!

Immunology Illustration

As far as I am concerned this is finished! I can't believe how long this project took and how many revisions it went through. I am so relieved to be done. At least I hope I am. I am still waiting on some feedback from one of my instructors...
Illustrator CS5 and lots of patience. I've included the illustration by itself and inserted in its intended context as a page spread in a scientific publication because the actual layout and the schematics that accompany the text took a bit of time as well!
