Surgical residents


Initial sketches were made during, and immediately after live observation of the procesure. 3D models of the surgical field were made using Cinema 4D for perspective reference.

Using 3D reference, refined sketches were made using Adobe Photoshop. Sketches of key steps of the procedure were chosen for the final layout. Final renders and text were assembled in Adobe Illustrator.
