Scientific illustration in Photoshop

Keeping the science theme going, I’ve gathered some examples of Photoshop’s use in scientific illustration:

By the way, on the subject of scientific illustration, I recently discovered Albertus Seba’s Cabinet of Natural Curiosities, an amazing collection of 18th-century illustrations of animals, plants and insects. And if that’s up your alley, see also Dream Anatomy, a collection of antique anatomical renderings drawn from the National Library of Medicine. [Via] Or for a more modern spin, see the adorable (?) squirting stomachs of I Heart Guts [Via].
[PS–6 minutes after I posted this, a copy of Cabinet of Natural Curiosities showed up at my door. Score!]

    Recently this anatomy book has been famous in Germany for its use of digital illustration: Anatomie Atlas (http://www.thieme.de/specials/prometheus). The site also features the artists.

    Thanks for linking to us! Just for the record, the guts were drawn in Illustrator, not Photoshop. Go vector!
