Ellipse Ribbons

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

I’ve been playing around with a variation of the radial sketch from my last post that plots a few thousand ellipses along a Perlin-randomized trajectory. I first spent a bit of time converting the ugly coordinate arrays to a cleaner object array, added a custom palette, and then added a bit more control over the view in the form of mouse-enabled 3D rotation and mousewheel zoom.

I’m not done with this sketch yet, I’m going to try generating a random palette from a photograph if I can get that working. For now here’s a dump of some of the more interesting stills:
