This project was part of an assignment for the MSc Medical Art. The aim  of the project was to visualise a polycystic kidney (the growth of numeral cysts in a kidney) by creating a 3D model and making an animation of it, to illustrate its morphology.

 

Zbrush was used for boththe modelling and the texturing of the polycystic kidney. The models shape and textures were based on photographs of polycystic kidneys. The model was then exported to a program called Keyshot and a turntable animation was made. This was rendered and imported in After Effects, where the final alterations were made and the file was rendered again. In addition to the animation, the polycystic kidney was uploaded in Sketchfab and annotated in the program, making it possible to view it interactively online.
