How to create amazing sacred geometry art

What is sacred geometry art?

Before diving deep into this article, let’s explain what is sacred geometry art by a quote from Wikipedia:

Sacred geometry ascribes symbolic and sacred meanings to certain geometric shapes and certain geometric proportions. It is associated with the belief that a god is the geometer of the world. 

Sacred geometry art used in the design and construction of religious structures such as churches, temples, mosques, religious monuments, altars, and tabernacles has sometimes been considered sacred. The concept applies also to sacred spaces such as temenoi, sacred groves, village greens, pagodas and holy wells, and the creation of religious art.

Sacred geometry is everywhere

Sacred geometry is all around us. We can find it in many geometrical shapes that give many sacred meanings. The sacred patterns are the shapes that form the fundamental templates for life in the universe. In religion, people believe that God is the geometer of the world because there are so many geometrical shapes around us. 

Many say that sacred geometry is the blueprint of creation and the genesis, the origin of all forms. Sacred geometry is an ancient science that explains how our world is created in the form of geometric codes.

Things like DNA, eyes, snowflakes, flower petals, shells, and crystals, or even stars in the universe or galaxies are based on geometrical shapes.

In fact, we can see geometrical patterns or even designs and constructions of religious structures in churches, temples, mosques, religious monuments, or altars.

The most famous shapes are The Seed of Life, The Tree of Life, The Egg of Life, The Flower of Life, The Fruit of Life, Seven Days of Creation, Metatron’s Cube, and many versions of Mandalas

Does the question arise how those designs have been created in the past without the technology we have now?

Sacred geometry art is complex

Nowadays, due to the technology we developed, we can automate many manual processes, that in the past took a lot of time to complete. Let’s think for a moment about the manual creation of a simple geometrical shape.

The process of drawing even a simple design could be really time-consuming and repetitive, not always bringing the desired effect. For instance, imagine drawing this sample Flower of Life on the paper? (the image on the right) →

By looking at the image we can see there are two main objects: circle (multiple duplicates) and line. It looks pretty simple and if you use manual tools like a compass and ruler you should be able to complete your design within 20 minutes. At this point, if you ask yourself a question: do I need any digital,  graphical tools for my drawing? Probably not.

Now, let’s see the next image on the right. →

Would it be difficult to create this geometrical shape? In this picture, we can only see one object that is used multiple times: a line. As simple as it looks, it does not mean that you can create it quickly, as the number of joins and the repetitive manual process could be really exhausting.

Again, do you need any tool to draw this shape? Probably not, but it is getting more complex. You should be able to complete this design within one hour.

The next image is a typical sacred geometry image. It has many different and complex shapes.

I can only imagine how long would it be to draw a sacred design like this: a day, maybe two? And it is only on paper. How about if you want to have it as a digital image or even animation? I think I have an answer to this question: OmniGeometry.

What is Omnigeometry?

OmniGeometry is software that was created with its main purpose: to create complex, nested, recursive geometrical shapes. The technology used in OmniGeometry is based on recursion. It uses recursive duplication of objects to create very complex shapes, not even sometimes visible to a naked eye at the first glance.

You may ask a question: why I cannot use Photoshop or Illustrator to create sacred geometry shapes? The answer is simple. You can, but the amount of time you spend on duplicating objects and create animation would be enormous in comparison to OmniGeometrywhere you can do it by just setting a few parameters.

The ideal scenario in your work would be to create a complex recursive, geometrical design in OmniGeometry and then use PhotoShop or Illustrator to complete your work.

Where to use Omnigeometry?

As Omnigeometry produces geometry shapes, you can use them in places where cool geometric shapes are in high demand. 

The geometry shapes are popular in clothing or graphic design, sacred architecture, art prints, geometrical constructions, geometrical forms, wall art, festival and event organisers.

Interestingly, tattooists use geometric shapes to produce excellent looking tattoos on the human body.

One of the most popular tattooists who uses Omnigeometry extensively is Dillon Forte (200k followers on Instagram).

He is a world-renowned artist, known mostly for his contemporary style of sacred geometry in body tattooing and canvas 

Why recursive approach is so important in creating complex geometry designs?

Recursive technology takes designing infinite shapes to a next level. For instance, standard photo editing programs like Photoshop or vector programs like Illustrator are simply not designed to duplicate objects infinitely. 

As a result, it would simply take a lot of time, computer memory, and processing power, and the final effect would be as desired.

As an example, imagine drawing 4096 formations with other programs or by hand? With OmniGeometry this would literally take you less than 5 seconds and just 4 clicks on the recursion parameter setting.

How to export new designs?

You can export designs in two different ways: as lossless PNG images or infinite resolution vectors. For instance, you can take lossless PNG files and use them in your work as a base for your designs or digital art. Then you can further enhance it in programs like Photoshop or Affinity Photo. 

On the other hand, if you are a vector editor program user, you can take the infinite resolution vector PDF file and use it, for example, for a print design.

Organic Interface

OmniGeometry interface is designed in a way that any changes to parameters you do, will be automatically applied to your design in real-time. As a result, this ability gives you immediate feedback so you can make any adjustments in real-time to perfect your design.

Is it possible to add animations to my designs?

Making animation is part of OmniGeometry software. As each individual shape is set in a separate layer, these layers can be scaled, rotated, and with different colours. 

The whole effect can be really stunning.  You can export animations and use them in music festivals, parties, websites, movies, or social media posts. Below are sample animations created with OmniGeometry.

Tracing

Together with animations, it is possible to add tracing to your animated scenes to create bitmap images. You can place each animated frame on top of the previous frame to create stunning effects with smooth colour patterns. 

Presently, you can export the images as a fixed resolution bitmap. OmniGeometry team is working on adding a feature to also export high-resolution images.

How easy is to create typical sacred geometry art shapes?

Typical Sacred Geometry shapes like the Flower of Life, Seed of Life, platonic solids, fractals, and toroids can be created in seconds using OmniGeometryIt is the only tool to draw geometry so fast as its whole purpose is to draw complex shapes.

Do I have to download and install Omnigeometry?

You do not need to install OmniGeometry on your PC or laptop to play with it. OmniGeometry provides you with two options: Online (runs directly on your browser) and Offline (download to your PC or laptop and take it anywhere plus the online version is included). 

In the online version, you can save all templates to the cloud, so you can work from anywhere you want.
