Circle Packing - 03.10.2021


I generated some custom colour palettes from the Wales and Shropshire photos (last post before this) and used them for a simple circle packing sketch. I really like the effect.

The first palette is from the sky in the final image, the second is from the grasses in the penultimate picture, and the last is from the photo of the metal gate (fourth image).

( was very useful.)

Swirled series - 03.12.2020

   video  processing

Make an animation starting with a chess board and finishing with a chess board in a maximum of 180 frames. That was the brief on a twitter thread recently. There were some very clever entries.

Craig S. Kaplan collected and assembled all the submissions into the video shown here (a huge amount of work, read his article if you're interested). His website is a good place to view - you can change the speed of the animations and the quality of the display is better.
