Andy Potts was recently approached by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Columbia University in New York to create illustrations based on research into non-invasive laser vision correction.
The aim was to submit his illustrations to Nature Photonics magazine to support a manuscript and for possible selection for the magazine’s cover. One of Potts’ illustrations was chosen to be on the front of the July issue of Nature Photonics and others are inside the issue.
Andy developed four images based upon discussions and diagrams of the non-invasive laser process. He used 3D modeling to create laser and eye close-ups before bringing his renderings into Photoshop for final color and texture.
