Circuit Boards

I started working on another variation on the path avoidance I used in Mazes, this time the generations started taking on the appearance of circuit boards. These are similar to designs I did for the last GigaZone Gaming Championship but those were all done manually in Illustrator. In this way, I can generate an infinite… Continue reading Circuit Boards

Mazes

I was inspired by the Threads series by Code Rambler, who is making these interesting path avoidance images. They resemble circuitry to me and I thought I’d try and give it a try. What I ended up with started taking on the look of a maze. There’s a base canvas width and height that is… Continue reading Mazes

The Insane Squiggle Machine Revisited

This week I went back to my set of Squiggle drawings and brought them into p5.js. Every time I work with this library I figure out a little more. This one is made with tints given to images from pallets collected from Coolers.co, various transformations (I didn’t know there was an imageMode(CENTER) command for centering… Continue reading The Insane Squiggle Machine Revisited

Lines from sketches

Yesterday I was working on some experiments with using hand-drawn lines and using them in place of the line function in p5.js, scaling them like I would with a stroke width. Adding rotation, tint, and translation I was able to get some interesting results. Some of the images were made using the mouse x and… Continue reading Lines from sketches

Painterly Experiments

I’ve been playing with a way to generate a painterly look in p5.js. To start I created several meandering paths, each of which would get a color to paint with. From here it was a matter of applying stroke weights, opacity, and a little rotation to turn them into something that resembles paintings. I feel… Continue reading Painterly Experiments

Fracture

I was experimenting with filling ellipses and other rounded containers with textures. By scanning across a square container around the shape I could find where the two of the shapes overlap with the help of bmoren/p5.collide2D After I have that set of points I found that it was then pretty easy to pack the shape with… Continue reading Fracture
