Following prompts from an artistic group, I'm developing generative art sketches, approximately daily. The prompts are coming from a group of people who are actually sketching (not with code), so some may seem a little odd.
Since these are intended as purely creative, rough sketches, code quality may vary. My objective is to implement a visual idea, as quickly as I can.
What is a sketch? I see it as quick code...like sketching with pencil, but getting the code down to generate an image
Prompt: "A cat experiencing snow for the first time."
Had to stop, and remind myself that I'm sketching here. Will have to come back to this one later. So much more I can do with it.
Prompt: "Runway-ready dress on Jupiter, as imagined by someone on Earth in the 1950s"
I went abstract, visually, with this one. It's been a while since I calculated the points on a tilted ellipse, so I spent most of my time on this aspect of the sketch.
Prompt: "Tarsiers, with or without caffeine"
In case you didn't know, tarsiers are very cute, and have huge eyes. I gave mine blue eyes, and a lot of friends.
Prompt: "Disco wildlife"
A search of "disco" turned up a bunch of crazy disco dance floors, so that's what I focussed on for this one.
Prompt: "The odd people in line, while you wait for coffee"
This one took me longer, as I was figuring out file access stuff. I drew several cartoon faces, and saved the facial features into seperate folders. Then recombined the into random faces. The positioning of the features are a bit rough, but then again, this is a sketch.
Prompt: "At least four rainbows"
Once I got this prompt, the idea for doing all these sketches with code started forming. I did this with drawarc from PIL
Prompt: "Happy trees"
This one inspired me to try coding something up with python and Python Image Library
Prompt: "A Robot who ordered pizza and it came with the wrong toppings on it."
This was the first prompt, and I sketched it with a pencil on paper.
