teeth

Spines and teeth. What can I say? I was drawing a lot from life and studying the way muscle lays across bone, how light hits the skin. I was curious about everything beneath the surface which lead me to X-rays, which of course, lead me to dental X-rays. Fascinating. If you are wearing earrings, have a tongue piercing, or a metal plate in your head this will show up in X-rays. I was mesmerized. So I combined the idea of the dental X-ray with the curves of the spine and came up with this design. I was playing with trapping along with shadowing by using different size dots to create the effect.
