Rafeeque Mavoor is a scientific illustrator. He works with researchers, developing scientific illustrations for scientific publications and science communication projects.
He completed his BS MS dual degree with major in chemistry from IISER Thiruvananthapuram (IISER TVM) and has been working on scientific illustration and animation projects for the past 7 years at IISER TVM, IISER Pune, JoVE and Novo Nordisk.
Since then, he has conducted multiple science illustration workshops at IIT Gandhinagar, IISER Bhopal, IISER TVM, IISER Pune, SciRio, Wow Science (IISER Pune) and conducted the workshop for Khula Aasman competition winners.
This was a really intresting workshop where I was able to learn the basics of Blender with fun live sessions and easy to do projects. The individual feedbacks were a lot helpful and I enjoyed working on the illustrations.
I always wonder about the process of making beautiful scientific figures, TOC, and cover images. With the basic knowledge about the blender, I got the opportunity to attend the workshop conducted by Rafeeque. This workshop experience gave me additional confidence to make my own Angewandte Chemie cover image by myself. Thanks to Rafeeque for this wonderful experience.
I enjoyed joining Scidart Academy's workshop. As a beginner who has zero knowledge like me, Rafeeque has explained how to use Blender and does tutorials excellently. We got to do hands-on projects and got feedback from him too which I think was the most important part of this workshop to eventually create beautiful science 3D models! I recommend anyone who would love to learn science illustration to join!
This course has helped us to get started with the basics of 3D illustration using the freely available software "Blender". With the help of small projects we were taught how to design our own 3D illustrations. Suchitha from SciRio and Rafeeque were always there to help us with the technical problems that we were facing. Overall it has been a superb experience to be a part of this course and to observe and learn how each one approaches the same project differently.
I would suggest that whoever wants to get a feel of what 3D illustration (scientific) looks like, should go for this course. 😊
Scidart workshop has been one of the best science illustration blender workshops I've ever come across!!! The trainer, Mr Rafeeque, is a wonderful and passionate illustrator professional, that provides step-by-step systematic teaching in all of his tutorials! The numerous techniques, wonderful key-pointers, fast replies to our queries and constructive advice provided during the creation of beautiful science illustration examples has truly benefitted a beginner like myself and further value-add in my professional development as a postgrad student writing manuscripts. Thank you so much, Mr Rafeeque!!! A truly unforgettable inspirational workshop! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟😍
This workshop was practical, informative, and fun! I can't wait to start using the skills I gained from the workshop in my own science illustrations!
Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity, Sci Rio. It was indeed a knowledgeable session and much gratitude to Rafeeque for that.
For the last one year I have been focusing more on 2D illustrations, assuming that 3D on blender would be too much for a budding illustrator like me. But this workshop not only just guided me through the simplest ways but also helped me built confidence to work more on it. I am very happy to say that I could design my first cover just one week after the workshop and I would love to recommend the session for my peers as well.
It was an amazing experience attending the foster “Welcome to the World of 3D Illustrations using Blender” organized by SciRio. Ever since I started illustrating, I had restricted myself to creating 2d illustrations, thinking of blender to be a bit complicated software to understand. But, creating 3D illustrations by following the precise and easy-to-understand tutorials by Rafeeque sir has indeed given me the confidence to work with Blender. Really excited to explore the software and create more interesting scientific 3d illustrations and animations!
As an RF research scholar with little idea on "Blender", this workshop has tapped the potential benefits of good illustrations to my research articles. Incorporeal nature of electromagnetics could greatly utilize a powerful design tool like "Blender" to make lucid designs. My heartful thanks to Mr.Rafeeque Mavoor and 'SciRio' for this wonderful experience.
It was really wonderful Blender workshop and learn a lot about 3D scientific illustrations. Hands-on tutorials in a workshop helped me to boost my confidence in learning illustrations. I will really recommend this workshop to everyone who wants to learn scientific illustration for their research purpose or for making good schemes for presentations. Thank you Rafeeque Sir for organizing such amazing workshops. Keep it up :)
