" Using this journal article from Anatomical Sciences International, the assignment was to illustrate the anomalous left hepatic vein originating from the left lobe of the liver and opening into the right atrium as described in the journal article provided. Incorporate the relevant anatomy of the heart (including great vessels, pulmonary veins, great cardiac vein, middle cardiac vein, posterior vein of the left ventricle and coronary sinus) and the relevant anatomy of the liver (including ligamentum venosum, portal vein and left hepatic vein). The emphasis of this assignment is to maximize the volumetric illusion of form through the use of light and shade. Concentrate on developing the large overall forms in addition to the smaller forms. Use an upper-left light as the main light source."
