Illustrations of Dissection of the Hip and Thigh

This gallery of medical illustrations concentrates on muscle of the hip and thigh. The skeleton was first created by the artist in order to correctly anatomically place the muscles of the human body.

Our illustrations are used for a huge variety of projects. The first illustration for example was commissioned for use as part of a research medical paper for a physiotherapist. Areas of interest that needed to be shown were the Lateral Epicondyle, Gluteus Maximus, cut and reflected to show the gluteus medias and then on to show the area of Gerdy's Tubercle.

In human anatomical terms, the leg is the part of the lower extremity that lies between the knee and the ankle and the thigh is between the hip and knee and the term lower extremity is used to describe the colloquial leg.

All the artwork was originally hand drawn as a pencil sketch. The sketches were then scanned and used as the base of the illustrations. To create the colour work, a combination of Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop was used.
