Well, to be fair, the bees did half the work :)
In this SciShow dose, Michael Aranda explains mystery behind trypophobia.
For the zoological illustration final, we were required to illustrate a fully fleshed out mammal as well as the full skeleton and musculature for a region of the body. I wanted to focus my project on the anteater’s feeding habits so the pose I drew was of the anteater digging so that I could show the musculature of the arm. I also created a composite of the head, showing the musculature of the tongue and mouth.
All three layers combines in photoshop.
Fleshed out anteater digging. I worked heavily from a plastic figurine since I couldn’t find many good reference pictures of the pose.
The anteater’s full skeleton. The back was painted with white and yellow ochre acrylic and the details were rendered on the front in graphite and colored pencil.
Musculature of the arms. Supposedly the giant anteater is capable of crushing jaguar in their arms, so I figured it would be the most action-packed region of the animal.

45 years ago, three astronauts blasted off on a mission to put man on the moon.
22 years ago today, the first photo was uploaded to the web – and it was of an all-girl science rock band from CERN, signing about colliders, quarks, and antimatter.
Oh, and they were actually really, really good.
