This piece was created as a presentation aid for an in-class presentation on the cell types of the central nervous system and their 3D relationships.
Pyramidal neurons and interneurons are shown (blue), as well as oligodendrocytes (pink), an astrocyte (peach), a microglial cell (white), and a capillary with red blood cells. Individual cell images were rendered from the same models so that those images could be shown as each cell type was presented.
The complete image incorporating all the cell types was accepted to and exhibited in the 3D Camp Houston “The Third Dimension” Juried Art Show, October 5th, 2013.
This piece was created in ZBrush and Cinema4D.
