Every designer making electronic effects seems to start by creating basic wiring. These tutorials are all over the Internet: stroke a path or a line, apply a colored bevel to it and distort to give it a curved or bent aspect. Hide the ends behind another layer leaving only the beveled mid section visible and you have wiring. I’m not saying this to denigrate the effect, indeed I still use it myself, but once you've learnt it, it’s time to move on. This chapter is all about using these basics as a springboard to bigger and better projects.
