Full Title: es-040118 - Evolving Retinal Ganglia
I found the pen tool.
I was reading this article in a science magazine called research and progress...
It explained how these cells (retinal ganglias), located in the eye, functioned as an internal clock for our bodies... These cells are very light sensitive and helps our brains keep track of when the day begins and ends. It also featured a picture showing these cells.
I got this, hmm, thought.. What if these cells would start growing out of control, and expand out through the pupil in their grasping search for light...
The cell itself had a 'pretty' easy shape, so I decided to try it out.
The result here is really not what I had expected, but it was fun working on it, and I'm pretty pleased with it I guess.
It's my first time using paths to this extent, and my first 'real' illustration I believe, allthough it contains some 3d. Maybe someone will like watching it for a while...
I'll probably do more illustrational work from now on, since I enjoyed it so much.
