Final Project: progress update

Since last time I was not completely clear on the idea, I continued brainstorming. As a result, I came up with an idea that combines everything I had planned: a mini game with a winter (Christmas/New Year) theme and related to drawing. I will create a mini-game based on a fairy tale I was told as a child. I was told that at night in winter, Ayaz ata(Santa) and his magical assistants painted on the windows in the morning to delight children. Of course, these “patterns” on the windows do not appear by themselves, but when the weather is very cold, the windows freeze and there is a miracle of nature. To recreate this idea, I will use the potentiometer as a basis for random and free drawing. Through the potentiometer, the user will be able to control the step-size and feel themselves as a character of my childhood fairytale.

Here are the photos I was inspired by:
Frost on the window photo
Also, using p5js I will create a nice background which will include snow outside and snowflakes falling on the ground. I will add a window to my image and try to make something similar to this illustration.

I want my idea to be an interactive mini game where the user can draw his pattern and then save it. Inspiration:
This game is about ceramic flux, where the user can draw anything on flux, then fire and be done with that. I like idea of adding a little bit more of interactivity.
So far I have all basic things settled, everything works individually and needs to be put together.
* I made a base for my background:

To do this, I used my knowledge from past assignments about generative art and also briefly skimmed through TheCodingTrain youtube channel resources.
* Video video test
Arduino code:

void setup() {
// put your setup code here, to run once:
void loop() {
// put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
int potentiometer = analogRead(A0);
int mappedPot = map(potentiometer, 0, 1023, 0, 30);

The variable inData is used to manage the intervals in this code.The serial.on(“data”, serialEvent) line of code means that when there is new data sent through the serial connection, the serialEvent() function will be called. Inside this function, we update the inData variable to read the signal from the Arduino board. As the input type is a string, it needs to be changed to a number with inData = Number(

-develop more, connect all parts
-add some interesting things with LEDs for creativity
-play with bg in p5js
