This piece is a mock two-page spread for a popular scientific magazine describing the transmission and histopathology of lepromatous leprosy for an educated lay audience. A head maquette was built in ZBrush, with digital painting of the head completed in Procreate and Photoshop. Vector assets were created in Illustrator and the tissue cube and remaining assets developed in Photoshop. The final composition and graphic design were done in Illustrator.
