Traditional Pencil Technique Medical Illustrations
Knowing what medium to choose for your project can be tricky. However, the team have a broad range of artistic skills and mediums at their disposal, and working in pencil being one of them. We offer this as a fantastic medium choice for our clients which suits a variety of anatomy projects. We have examples of various Practical Neurology and Annals of Thoracic Surgery and British Dental Journal projects where pencil has been used with a great result and received a great client response. Pencil is as versatile as any medium and can be used from publishing to animation projects.
So Why Choose The Medium of Pencil
Pencil Artwork has a Timeless Appeal
Pencil is one of the simplest and most efficient means of communicating visual ideas, it has a timeless appeal and pencil drawings do not seem to age or appear out of date. A good pencil drawing of any subject matter has as much appeal today compared to any other medium.
Drawings Capture Forms of Expression
Drawing is a form of expression and as artists we can capture this in the finished artwork. This is a unique and engaging format to use for a project. Form and depth can be achieved through shading, blending, adding tones of dark and light. For medical art especially, measuring the dimensions of a subject while blocking in the drawing is an important step in producing a realistic rendition of the subject. A pencil medical illustration alone can highlight a particular meaning, add a tone or character to a client’s individual project.
Clients who Commissioned Pencil for their Medical Communications
We have been chosen by clients to produce medical illustrations in pencil such as Frontera Group London for patient education materials to describe female anatomy and IUD placement. We have been commissioned to create medical illustrations in pencil for wall art for waiting room displays for a company providing Orthopaedic surgery in Australia. To pencil illustrations of weight lifting exercises for an American Journal on Exercise called Black Belt Magazine.
The finished results are that these illustrations look artistic and yet still professional at the same time retaining a form of expression where an artist has been able to include emphasis on observation, problem-solving and composition. It makes for not only a very attractive illustration but an educational one all rolled into one.
