Anterolateral View of the Human Skull

This illustration was created for a gross anatomy dissection course in the Biomedical Communications program. It was first sketched using the grid method and then rendered in carbon dust. A skull model was used as the main reference; real skulls specimens and anatomy atlas illustrations were used to cross-reference throughout the process.
