I have been contemplating posting my project sometime here and finally decided I should. I have been working on this project for awhile and I would like feedback on it from the community. None of the areas are complete to the level of detail I want but it is a start, and I wanted to post some work along the way so I can show the process from this point forward. For all of you that have done the skeleton before and put the time in to make it accurate I commend you. I have seen some amazing skeletal work from the artists here.
This has to be one of my most interesting and challenging projects due to all the hidden areas and digging for reference. I work in orthopedics and get to see x-rays on a daily basis, so creating a skeleton for me was a natural thought. I have always enjoyed studying anatomy and I have been in the medical field for some time now, so I want to put that knowledge together for medical illustration purposes. I am fortunate enough to of had Doctors give me several projects that will be published in 2015. This work will be done to help me for future illustrations. I am also very appreciative to have them available for review of my anatomical work, but they are not ZBrush artists, and oddly enough even some Dr’s say they are not that great at the anatomy, sounds funny right, so I go to the specialists for each area for review.
I welcome your comments and any references for aid in this project. I am detail oriented and want this to be as accurate as possible.
My plan is to complete the skeleton, then the muscles and organs and after that see what’s next. The thought of creating veins is a bit daunting now so maybe when I get to that stage I’ll have a better idea how to handle that process…and maybe something in ZBrush 4R7 will help since I know it will be out way before I am at that stage.
If there are any questions along the way please ask I love any opportunity to help others pass through an area I may have knowledge about.
Btw, this has been done entirely in ZBrush up to this point, to help me become more proficient with the tools in ZBrush.
