Pancreas Animated

To gain an even deeper understanding of how the pancreas works, I modeled a pancreas to size on a model and took 121 photos as I moved the model pancreas bit by bit.

First, you see food coming down into the esophagus and into the stomach where food gets broken down before entering the small intestine, as it does, enzymes are released from the pancreas (yellow) to break the food down into sugars and insulin is pumped through the pancreas and into the cells.

Although short and lacking in finer details, I think the animation works quite well in terms of technique and replication of movement. I like the fact that the animation is done on the body rather than inside the body.
