Abstract Wireframe Render in Blender

In this Blender video tutorial we will be learning about creating an abstract wireframe render.  The style of this type of artwork is called plexus. Which is a Latin term and it basically means branching vessels or nerves.

Stephen also has a pretty great Youtube Channel to check out.

To start out we will be using a bunch of different modifiers to create the wireframe effect. From there we get into the particle system and materials.  Finally after adding in some volumetrics we render out the image.  Congrats! You now have a new desktop background!

If you made it all the way to the end and created your own render you should show it off and post it in the forums! 

Thanks for watching, if you have any questions leave them in the comments below!
