Anatomy and Art

Awesome Image

with 2 comments

Last night I stumbled into this image while I was looking for something else.  It was listed with other pieces created in Maya.  I love it.  I wish I had an artist to link to in credit of it.  If anyone knows who created this, let me know and I will happily edit this post to include that information.

I remember back in gross anatomy, my first dissections of heads, and how strange a perspective it was on the tongue in particular when you see it in it’s full form.  This image doesn’t fully display the tongue to the level of bulk I once found shocking (we seriously have a lot of tongue in us!), but it is a very nicely created image.  I think I’m most impressed by the faint suggestion of the man’s closed eye, that might also be the semilunar hiatus.  That’s just a nice touch, that.

Here is an old image out of Grey’s Anatomy if you’re not familiar with what I mean (this is also the image that Wikipedia gives you if you follow that semilunar hiatus link.)
