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.
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).
weird jumpy pseudo-3d sphere thing.
not happy with it due to absence of ideas... either going to improve it until the end of the week or make a new one.
theres a transparent version but it has black seams so here is in black:
EDIT: added a new version I did with a lot of the same code. Now Im neutral :P I do realize my loops are way too long, need to use less different prime factors for the loops....
Also found an intrinsic error in how I detect looping atm... dirty fix for now, will be smarter when I rewrite schedulör for a public release.
I built a small Scheduling/Looping engine in LÖVE and a Wrapper that loops until all "partial loops" are done and auto-screencaps everything. I present: my first looping gif!
The code is now in a github repo: https://github.com/s-ol/demoloops
This was, without doubt, the hardest stencil to cut so far. All the tiny details at the top of the head were insanely hard to do, I ended up mostly just pushing the blade through and wiggling to make a slit. It turned out great regardless, and I'm proud of it. This is also a candidate for an A3 remake some time.
I used a thin cap for the red color to get through the tiny holes with a bit more force, and it worked out great without overspraying too much.
