Facial nerve

This illustration was produced as part of my studies in Clinical Anatomy. I wanted to try and visualise the facial nerve and in particular it's path through the parotid gland and the 5 terminal divisions providing motor innervation to the facial muscles.

I also wanted to practice using the iPad Pro and Procreate to create a more illustrative style. I really enjoy drawing on the iPad and Procreate allows for a very realistic, traditional way of working with all the benefits of digital. With this illustration I've tried to include areas of connective tissue which I've noticed during clinical sessions.
