Personal work on a cancer cell rendering to show my vision on the subject on how to show ugly things in medical illustration without going gore. Modeling in zbrush, touch-ups in modo and rendeing in octane. Small color correction in Photoshop.
3D illustration titled “Edibles and Potables” created for California Magazine.
The brief was to create an illustration of the famous scene from the Wizard of Oz but with all the elements made of pills creating shapes like flowers or the Emerald city. The story of the article is about the potential for cannabinoids to help alleviate the opioid crisis. It’s called “We’re Not on OxyContin Anymore, Toto.” Link to the article
Art director: Michiko Toki
Tools used: Modo, Photoshop. Rendered with Octane.
Heart made of glass illustration created for the Washington Post for the Health & Science section.
The brief was to show a realistic heart without going into some gore medical thematic. I proposed a heart made of glass and filled with red liquid so the shape will be obvious but the artistic side will dominate the image aspect. By adding some caustics effects and strong glass refraction & dispersion the whole illustration looks photrealistic, almost like a car advertising 😉
