Sci-fi landscape scenes featuring Tron-style grids, mountain scenes, and a vibrant sunrise is a popular aesthetic that is associated with art and design from the 80s.

In today’s tutorial I will show you an easy way to create your own retro landscape scenes with the help of a huge 80s inspired toolbox named NeonWave.
