This course serves as a continuation of the first Natural Science & Zoological Illustration course. In this section, the student will continue to focus on natural science and anatomically based concepts and subject matter. Utilizing knowledge from Principles of Biology I & II and anatomical references, the student will continue to develop keen observational skills and apply those concepts through digital methods. Course work will include visitations to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and CWRU Gross Human Anatomy department. Students outside the major will learn techniques in digital illustration and concepts in visual communication for editorial and narrative based projects. The integration of digital media using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator will be used in methods unique to scientific illustration to explore the boundaries of medium and convention in modern production. The rendering concepts learned will provide a solid foundation for subsequent semesters and be integrated further into the broader scope of the Life Sciences Illustration major. Offered spring. Fulfills Engaged Practice requirement.
