Overview

Realism: A Study in Human Anatomy pushes the level of graphical detail available in human anatomy to unprecedented heights. The information presented in this book will be an important step on the way to understanding how the human body is organized and how it functions.  Thousands of computer objects, representing the bones and muscles of the human body, were constructed in three dimensions. Image maps with very high resolution were painted onto the objects to give them very realistic color rendition and textures. The resulting anatomical objects within this book are astounding in their appearance and will be extremely useful for teaching and research.  This book truly allows the reader to marvel at the beauty of the construction of the human body. MARKET: A student of anatomy, anyone working in a field where you need to know detailed anatomy or any artist who strives to represent the human body with accuracy, be it in 3D or 2D.
