"Windy Dawn" digital art, and details on how it was created

in art •  4 months ago

I use the mathematical patterns that are inherent in polyhedra to make artwork - I call that Spherical Art. Here's an example:

What a cool process! The complexity that you are able to generate from this is insane. I just scrolled through your instagram pics for a bit and it is really interesting how different from each other some of the pieces you generate with this method are. Is this process something you came up with on your own, or is this building off of existing work in this area? I had never encountered anything like this before.

Much love - Carl "Cyclops" Gnash ;)

Hi Carl, I got the idea for this technique by watching a 2014 video on Lynda.com by a designer named "Gmunk" If you go that site and search that name, his video is still there and you can watch the intro for free. He was putting his cameras and lights inside polyhedral spheres and making quick amazing images. I've been building on this technique for two years. I have many recipes/variations to explore. This one above is just one of them. They do produce a lot of different looks, plus I add to them via Photoshop manipulation. The best part is being surprised at what I find. I do at least two or three a day.

Which 3d software? I use Cinema 4D for some abstract renders. Great to have you here on steemit :) This is the best place for artists. excited to see more from you soon.

Thank you Max. I just read your intro post and saw your blog. You create some cool images! I use Luxology's Modo as my 3D app. I got the idea for this technique by watching a 2014 video on Lynda.com by a designer named "Gmunk" If you go that site, his video is still there and you can watch the intro for free. He was putting his cameras and lights inside polyhedral spheres and making quick amazing images. He used Maya. I've been building on this technique for two years. I have many recipes/variations to explore. This one above is just one of them. I look forward to interacting with you about digital art!
P.S. My birthday is Jan 22 as well.
