The Femur

Project Type

Self directed project ¦ MSc Assignment


Pencil/Graphite on Paper


To produce a life size tonal drawing of an adult femur in traditional methods.

About the Project

This was an assignment from the first semester of the MSc Medical Art, University of Dundee, in which we were asked to make a measured tonal drawing of a human femur. This was done using pencil and graphite on paper.

I went on to create a labelled graphic of the articulation and muscle attachment sites of the the femur, created in Photoshop from a scanned image of the femur drawing. I enjoy combining traditional techniques with digital.
