Week 3: generative art with OOP

I honestly could not generate artwork from scratch. Thus, I got inspired after watching Daniel Shiffman’s coding challenge of creating a starfield. He used OOP in the example, so I decided to use his sketch. I watched the video till the end, while also enhancing my understanding of implementing OOP.

The interesting fact is that I have a fear of being stung by bees. Perhaps, this is the reason why I got inspired to create them. My parents would have always told me that I need to freeze at the sight of flying bees, otherwise they might get angry. I interpreted this idea into the code: when you move the mouse, more crazy bees are generated.

Throughout the process, I also learned how to embed an image into the code, which I needed to create bees.

All in all, I wish I could reach that level of creating beautiful abstract and complicated artworks.
