As part of an ongoing experiment, Adam Pellerite and Brandon Pletsch have been collaborating with David Rini, Associate Professor in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to generate digital wireframe models for anatomical art and education. This heart was part of the proof of concept phase.
Adam Pellerite captures multiple angles of the prosected heart
After the heart is photographed from enough angles, we create a digital 3D mesh
The heart mesh was then re-sculpted by Alexey Kashpersky for detail, using the original as a template
The newly sculpted heart was re-imported to 3ds max along with painted textures and rendered.
Alexey used the new digital sculpture to render his sketch concept
Alexey had another sketch concept he wanted to explore
