This is a collection of explorations of grid, layout, shape, composition and 3D execution. I started with a simple concept of a circle and a line. These shapes both had a varied level of emission, along with a scattering layer applied on top. After defining the look I began to iterate on the concept. Each iteration I would duplicate the setup, create a new illustration, transition that into a 3D scene, and then recompose the final output. Below is the final result of those explorations.
