I’ve been listening to a lot of synthpop / retrowave music lately (such as Oliver, Nightstop and The Midnight), and was inspired to make this 80’s style piece in Cinema4D. I had a clear direction in mind, where I used the abstract lightning bolt to symbolically represent ‘Electrify’, the title of the digital art piece and also a song by Oliver (a synthpop artist).

Further progressing the artwork itself was to animate it in Cinema4D, so I made some movement and sizing changes to add to the effect. I wanted the movements to be relatively subtle, and to just move on the one axis whilst the camera panned around the design slightly.
