Bioprint Your Own Organs
This project was produced for the Maya modelling course in the Biomedical Communications program. The aim was to create a mock editorial journal cover for a proposed research topic. I wanted to convey the concept of bioprinting in a simple, but memorable way. I decided to sculpt a 3D printed heart. I then utilized dramatic lighting in order to bring focus towards the printer itself.
Everything begins with a sketch. I took a look at 3-4 possible cover concepts before deciding to focus on a single, detailed model.
I began by modelling some simple structures for the base of the heart in Maya. Following this, I transported the simple heart model into Zbrush and sculpted details on top of the heart. The Arnold Render Engine in Maya was used to construct textures, and dramatic lighting in the final render.
