I'm looking for a high-res sketch/illustration of a very specific suturing/stitching technique used by surgeons. The good news is that you don't need to know anything about surgery - all you have to do is create a sketch that combines the two images in the attached file.
Image 1 shows a set of standard sutures. I really like the style of this illustration, so the freelancer would ideally create something like that. Alternatively, a 'sketch-like' illustration would work too.
Image 2 is the technique I'm trying to convert into the nicer style of the above image.
Image 2 shows a wound being closed by a combination of Steri-Strips and sutures. Steri-Strips are white pieces of plaster (https://www.conrad.at/medias/global/ce/5000_5999/5900/5910/5912/779121_AB_02_FB.EPS_1000.jpg) that close a wound initially.
The sutures are sewn THROUGH the Steri-Strip, and that's what the illustration needs to show.
Image 3 is a rough illustration that I made showing roughly what I'd like the illustration to look like. As you can hopefully see, there's a wound that's been closed by the combination of Steri-Strips and sutures. There are a few Steri-Strip+Suture combinations that have already been completed at the top of the wound. There's 1 suture that's in the process of being tied through the steri-strip towards the bottom. And right at the bottom, the wound is still open.
So that, in a nutshell, is what I'd like a freelancer to illustrate if possible.
The final illustration needs to be blended into a WHITE BACKGROUND. So if you're using pink for skin colour, please add some kind of artsy brush effect that allows it to be placed on a white background without looking out of place. Hope that makes sense!
