The Scapula: glass effect

To produce a colour painting of a human scapula on Photoshop.

This was an assignment from the first semester of the MSc Medical Art at University of Dundee.
The task was to create a painting of a human scapula from observation in Photoshop.
The biggest learning I took from this assignment was the importance of medium details. I had a tendency toward laying basic detail and then adding fine detail on top. Taking the time for the details in between in the end rendered an image I was satisfied with.
I also wanted to communicate how thin the subspinous portion of the scapula is. I wanted to darken the background but realised that with black/grey it was coming across more like shadows and therefore I opted for a duck-egg blue which I found both aesthetically pleasing and effective.
