This is a short timelapse of me drawing the generative artwork shown at the start of the video. The music is by Secret Circuit.
If you want to see more of my generative drawings (and all my other art & videos), subscribe to my Patreon at patreon.com/immysmith. To make the timelapse 1 frame was captured every 5 seconds. This is in my old studio! I can't wait to share a video soon of what it looks like now! Closed captions describe the rules I'm drawing to.
Below is a transcript of the captions;
'Hi, I’m Immy Smith. This video is a timelapse of me making this drawing! This is a generative drawing made to a simple set of rules. The 1st circle is made in the centre of the paper. After that, I use a list of randomly generated numbers from 0-99 to decide whether to draw another circle or a layer of dots and dashes. If the next number is smaller than the total number of layers drawn so far, I draw another circle. If it’s greater, I draw another layer. If I draw a circle, I use another list of randomly generated numbers, from 1-360, to decide where to draw the circle relative to a vertical line from the centre of the paper. If I draw a layer, I cycle through a set of 11 different combinations of dots and dashes, in order. I also cycle through a set of colours, chosen at the start of the piece. Each circle drawn is slightly smaller in diameter than the last, and to do that I use the orange circle template that you can see pop up. This drawing is A2 size, and I really love making large drawings like this!
