I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.
"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.
Using all three of my python scripts, i made a little fun opus.
its a glitched .gif of the splining of 10 key framed OctaveNoise squares.
the first image fades using cubic interpolation, the second uses linear interpolation. Note how the first one looks FAR better.
My .gif making software, Jasc AnimationShop 3 (2004) had a feature to fade between frames. I used this feature before to fade between my OctaveNoise squares, but i was never pleased with the results.
This is because of the interpolation algorithm. AnimationShop3 uses linear interpolation. Meaning, its transitions between the colors in each pixel by the same amount each frame. This creates stiff movements.
A FAR better algorithm for smoothly fading between values is called cubic interpolation. Cubic interpolation uses curves to fade between values, making something smoother, and more visually natural. Since I couldn’t find any program the explicitly did this, I of course wrote my own in python using PIL.
i will polish the code, and publish this tool later :D
"The Little Pumpkin Hen is inspired by the Grimm Brother’s tale, The Death of the Little Hen. It is a story about selfishness where characters continually meet their death because of their refusal to help those around them.
Gretshelle Rivera’s tamer version of the Grimm’s tale focuses on misdirected aggression and frustration towards people due to prior failures in social interaction. The story is about the little hen coming to terms with vulnerability, but then ultimately allowing herself to get the help she needs and be secure enough to allow others to help her.”
Heyo- wanted to update everyone on my recently completed children’s book The Little Pumpkin Hen. A little while back I announced it was finished, I am now able to publish it.
I will start off with the digital format sold on gumroad then later sell it on my storenvy in a convenient 5.5x8.5” sized book-form. I will also be posting the story on my portfolio (is WIP) later this month or so, if you would rather not pay for the digital version. However, every little bit helps support me creating more work like this and make other physical merch you may like (possibly new stickers, postcards and keychains on the way). Thank you again to everyone for their support the past couple months, please signal boost- a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making this.
jesus im so sorry i just kind of threw up art here
I have released another update to my OctiveNoise script. this is version 1.3!
this update includes better pallet support, randomized fuzzing of the square placement, and a bit clearer annotating.
