January 23, 2013: Cellspace 2 update

Cleaned up the background to highlight the tree; simplified the foreground (no tiling) to show better the blood vessel cells. I’ll add more branches and some leaves, but I may skip the shadows. I want the cell photography to star.

Qutub Lab (http://www.qutublab.rice.edu/) has given permission to use their beautiful cell images in this artwork. I do so with gratitude for their generosity and in awe of their research efforts.

Growing the Tree

Growing the Tree

Making progress on the tree in Cellscape 2. It helps that I dropped the background images (clouds, greenery and rocks) from the Illustrator file, which became unmanageably large as the tree has grown. I hope my computer can handle the whole image when I’m ready to put it together.
