Transparent specimen refers to the process of using vivid colors to dye the skeleton, making the structure of the delicate bones appear as if it is coming to life. When the specimen are fish and reptiles, whose body structures is completely different from that of humans, their bones in themselves are thinner and line up in many different ways. You feel like you can just stare at the mysterious colors forever. When someone uses Alcian Blue and Alizarin Red for dyeing, even if you look at the original specimen or draw them as an illustration, the vivid colors is what attracts your eye.
Today we have a special feature on illustrations with motifs of transparent specimen. Enjoy!
