Yesterday the hedcut style was brought up in chat. How can we create a hedcut-like style automatically in Mathematica, using a photograph as a starting point? I am looking to create a similar ...
I came across this image the other day: and liked the sensation of it pulsing. I was wondering if anyone would know how to create something similar with Mathematica (without the Pink Floyd Dark ...
Suppose we have a long list of random points (cartesian coordinates) in 3D space. coords := ...; Until now, I was associating colors in a radial way, from the ...
I'm trying to generate a spherical distribution of radial random walk points in 3D space. The following code works, but the random walk lines aren't radial. Why ? Where is my mistake ? ...
I'm creating 3D nebulae models for Celestia, a free OpenGL astronomy software. The following question is in part related to another one I already asked on this forum (see this question, for which I ...
In The Road to Reality there are plots of surfaces that use a variable density of dots to suggest curvature. You can see some examples here and here. I suppose they've been drawn by Penrose, but ...
I'm generating some 3D models of planetary nebulae and supernova remnants for Celestia, a free OpenGL astronomy software. Currently, I know how to do it with random points inside a spherical shell. ...
Well, the title is self-explanatory. What sorts of snowfall can we generate using Mathematica? There are two options I suggest to consider: 1) Continuous GIF animations with smallest possible number ...
This image comes from Michael Trott's Mathematica Guidebook for Programming. It's just a chapter image though, and he doesn't show the code. I was wondering what would be the best approach to ...
The question is how can we use Mathematica to create vectorized versions of low-resolution images? The goal is to get an image suitable for quality printing at any resolution. Since "true" ...
I have the following code which draws a graphic, and colors the regions in it different colors: ...
What I want to do is in any way produce a picture that looks like this Given a set of words, how can I partition a disk into bricks for these words, such that it looks good? Here is my sucky ...
How to effectively create a polygon that looks like a realistic inkblot? So far, I could come up with this (borrowing from Ed Pegg Jr.'s Rorschach demonstration): ...
Word clouds are rather useless fancy and visually appealing plots, where words are plotted with different sizes according to their frequency in a corpus. Many applications exist out there (Wordle, ...
Here's some confetti: ...
