No matter your tools, just produce something that loops. Take pictures, draw pictures, edit videos, program loops, just create something!
Most loops are gifs and without sound, but in true demo-style ones with sound are appreciated too.
in the past some of us have created small toolkits to 'write' gifs as programs:
Some other projects from around the web that may be relevant:
On the non-programming side, regular graphics and video editing tools should be useful (Gimp, Inkscape, Blender, Adobe PS, AE, Animate...).
Some subreddits that are relevant:
Streak.club has seen two of these streaks before, so check them out for some inspiration, too:
Diamond/shard shape with a little bit of particle system flavour. Instanced drawing of the particles is good but I'm not sure if it's faster to send the transform per instance or do the vertex transform work on the GPU. Either way, this one is done on the GPU because I hadn't done it that way before.
three versions of very simple monochromatic things in a square grid + a glitched bonus gif.
welp, there goes the streak; i could blame going on holiday but really I totally would've had the time to do it.
alright, lets try weekly loop again. the last thing I added to loops library was a model loader so here's a model with the faces broken apart
i've seen the general idea done a couple of times, but this was a nice exercise in geometry.
I'm pretty sure theres a better way of constructing the outer polygon from one of it's vertices and the edge angle, but I'm just rotating it back and translating to get it to stick vertex-to-vertex which feels kind of weird (and unreadable).
