looking for illustration/drawing guide

#1 Post by Kevin_r » Sun Sep 13, 2020 7:54 am

I would like to illustrate my own microscopic observations since the microscope camera is not yet available.

I would like to know if you have heard any books/references that teaches on how to illustrate microscopic organisms (anything between bacteria to protozoan, and probably microscopic structures of animals and plants).

I would like to know your thoughts about this.

You may also share your favorite articles or papers that showcase amazing illustration works.

Rather than a temporary substitute for a camera, microscopy drawing should be considered an art in its own right, in many cases more useful than a photographic image.

Several manufactures offer drawing attachments, you should check to see if one is available for your microscope.
