I really enjoyed copying another artists work, mostly because I liked analyzing the process. It was a good break from inventing the process. The key observations I made were:
- using a grid with a line each cell
- adjusting the cell width and height to most optimally fit the average line angle
- not choosing each line angle randomly, but rather deviating a little from an initially randomly chosen angle
- choosing several chunks of the grid to omit lines gives the illusion of the lines being “interrupted”
- there is a white border
In the end I thought that the user would have more fun if they could click to reveal a new iteration of the algorithm. This way, you can more accurately analyze the way I formed my own lines.
