Some interesting gradient textures are created with a fractal subdivision process.
A newly updated fractal flame generator in HTML5 canvas, with more controls and features. Apply rotational or mirror symmetries, or a non-linear variation which can produce pretty swirls. Try out the eight different presets for a quick start.
Beautiful fractals are rendered in the HTML5 canvas with a simplified fractal flame algorithm. Have fun generating fractals with randomized maps while saving the images you like.
More generative art experiments with smoothly transitioning lines drawn on the canvas. Parameters for drawing the lines are determined by a fractal subdivision process similar to my earlier art experiments.
Slowly morphing fractal curves sweep across the canvas, creating very pretty evolving and flowing structures. I present seven different variations on this theme, using different colors, gradients, and drawing parameters. Included is the necessary code for exporting images from the canvas to a saveable format.
I extend the ideas in my post on drawing imperfect circles, now to draw imperfect rectangles. I tweak the fractal subdivision process used to determine the randomness, and create a couple more examples of simple but pleasant shapes that appear to be drawn by a human.
Getting a computer to draw a shape in the way that a human would requires programming in some imperfection. I show you how a fractal subdivision algorithm can be used to draw some pleasantly imperfect circles.
