Gogh, a Simple Painting Generator

6 Nov 2012

Gogh, my vessel to the Hacker News front page, creates a tightly-coded random painting using HTML5’s Canvas. The cool part is that it draws before your eyes, starting from a blank canvas to a simple landscape with a pretty tree. Currently, it draws trees and mountains along with the ground and sky. I am happy with where it is at for now, though it could use some happy little clouds.

I named it Gogh since I had a Doctor Who poster in my room drawn in the style of Gogh’s Starry Night Sky, though I dedicated it to the late Bob Ross, whom I grew up watching since he was on after the cooking show and before Sesame Street. My motivation was to scratch my itch for some Canvas and trigonometry. Gogh try it out at the link above..
