Medical Illustrations of Pregnancy
Medical illustrations that depict pregnancy and the developing foetus allow a view inside a human’s body, to see the living foetus deep inside the womb that is normally hidden from view. Through training, a professional medical artist can interpret and re-create anatomy when it is normally unseen.
A medical artist can create such powerful educational tools of anatomy because these remarkable types of illustrations show in high detail the anatomy and surrounding environment such as the growing foetus, to provide a wonderful and enlightening insight. By removing any unwanted detail the artist can skilfully bring focus to just the essential elements and bring to life human anatomy in a totally engaging way.
