Rough Drafts and Experiments
Two views of a default cube in Blender 2.74 I made in August 2015. They are from frame 140 of the animation. All of my line particle system images are from animations. I look through all the frames to see when the form reveals itself to me and that's when I determine to take the shot.
This was made with a particle system of lines and three force fields, a vortex, a magnetic and a turbulence, placed in the center of the cube and scene*. I play around with the different physics, force fields and reactions to them, to see what will happen. I keep it simple by only altering their strength and direction.
* The center of the scene is x=0, y=0, z=0
