Hi! How's progress with the hexagonal pixel art program? :o
I had to take a break for a week or so to work on some other stuff. Right now I have the hexels showing up in a grid, but I have to change the part of the algorithm where the dang thangs are drawn.
Check out my playground here: http://pancaketheorem.com/stuff/hexels/
If you click around from the left of your window to the right, you’ll see that the further right you go, the greater the distance between where you click and where the hexel is drawn. That’s because every even-numbered column is actually a number of pixels down and left of the previous row - since those boogars need to fit into the crevices of the previous column’s hexels. (I call this the Smartboard effect, because all of the smartboards here at MSU do this and it makes it impossible to use them arghhhh).
Okay now I’m just babbling. I love all the interest that folks are expressing in this jerk I’m making. I’ll continue posting my progress once I get back into it, under the “make hexel art” tag: http://jennschiffer.tumblr.com/tagged/make-hexel-art . Probably next week.
ps. so bummed that hexcellent.com is a parked domain :/ But I got mosthexcellent.com. Most excellent, brah!
