Week 46: Surgical tools | Hand Surgery, Orthopedics

Original sketches from OR sketchbook were rough: the primary focus at that point was to depict how the surgeon handles these tools and their overall shape.  They were then redrawn and cleaned up in Photoshop.

**feel free to use the close-up photo I took of curved surgical scissors, needle driver, micro scissors, and surgical forceps for your own reference :)
