Intro to Digital Biomedical Illustration

Course No. BMA 254  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Thomas Nowacki

This course serves as a continuation of the first iteration of Biomedical Art Methods I. In this section, the student will continue to focus on natural science and anatomically based concepts and subject matter, dealing specifically with human biology/anatomy and body systems. Utilizing knowledge from Human Biology II and anatomical references, the student will continue to develop keen observational skills and apply those concepts through digital methods. Students outside the major will learn techniques in digital illustration and concepts in visual communication to for editorial and narrative based projects. The core media will be centered in Digital Illustration methods and concepts in monochromatic tone. The integration of digital media will be used in unique ways to explore the boundaries of medium and convention in modern production. Digital illustration skills in Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator will be learned and augmented through traditional scanned work. The rendering concepts learned will provide a solid foundation for subsequent semesters and be integrated further into the broader scope of the biomedical art major. Offered spring.
