I've been requested by Neonmob (a trading-card social network), to make a big set of more than 100 pictures. As I had freedom on the subject, I searched for base shapes that I could vary sufficiently so there’d be a relationship, and yet each shape would be different from all the others. I ended up representing an index of fake radiolaria inspired by SEM imagery and the incredibly detailed illustrations of Ernst Haeckel.
I've started only with geometric base shapes in TopMod, a topological mesh modeling software (although it’s no longer developed, this free, useful software has unique functionality).
I then took these shapes into Cinema 4D for fine tuning and rendering, and finalized the image in Photoshop.
This is only a small part of the full set, available for collecting on Neonmob only ! If you want to collect them, please follow the link bellow for signing up ! (this will give me some extra cards, therefore that would make me happy :))
