Grid Based Crop Circles Designs

By Xah Lee. Date:

Grid designs can be based on a square grid or triangular grid. Triangular grid is the basis of hexagonal grid, i.e. honeycomb pattern.

Once you have a grid, you have draw circles around grid points, or connect lines across grid points. To make it more interesting, you can take out some segment or area of the grid in a regular way.

This one made me laugh. The creator makes it look like the triangles are placed in position as toy blocks, by intentionally making part of the pattern irregular in position. Not sure if this is a fake photo.
