Anatomical Illustration Techniques for Medical & Scientific Illustration

Anatomical Illustration by Ikumi Kayama

Learn the skill of creating realistic and accurate anatomy drawing in graphite and watercolor (optional).

This workshop is aimed for students of all levels who are curious or familiar with human anatomy to learn more about the graphite and watercolor techniques to create realistic drawings using scientific illustration techniques. Studying from a cast skeleton of human/animals, we will first draw the bones and then add structure around the skeleton as needed.

The class will focus on focusing the story and the audience of the illustration, sketching anatomical landmarks and add detail and labels. We will cover basic drawing and rendering techniques used by many profesional artists. We will also cover common troubleshooting and how to avoid being overwhelmed.

Few things we’ll cover:
•How to conduct initial research
•How to observe shapes, texture, and color value of various tissues
•How to decide which structures to illustrate

This workshop will be a mixture of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on experience.


This workshop will run from 11am-4pm on Saturday April 4 and Sunday April 5, with a 45 minute break for lunch each day.
