Topologically Generated Radiolaria
I had the privilege of working with NeonMob to create a collection for their digital collecting platform. Since I had complete creative freedom on the subject, I searched for base shapes that I could vary sufficiently and between which there could be a relationship, yet each shape would be different from the others. My series of "radiolaria" were inspired by incredibly detailed 18th century illustrations of microorganisms by the artist Ernst Haeckel.
I constructed the geometric base shapes in TopMod, a topological mesh modeling software (although TopMod is no longer developed, it is a free, useful software with unique functionality).
I then took these shapes into Cinema 4D for fine tuning and rendering, and finalized the image in Photoshop.
They interviewed me on this project and my process and background. And finally, here's a "work-flow tutorial" about this project!
