Basics of Shader Fractals

Fractals are built off of a single pattern or formula, repeated constantly with smaller and smaller transformations. In glsl, this idea translates nicely into iterative coding with for loops. How to Make a Fractal I’ll be following kishimisu’s guide on shaders. Create a Shape First off, we can start by creating some base patterns that we want to design our fractal off of. In this case, we can start with a simple circle....

3D Matrix Rotations

Intuition of 3x3Matrix Transformations Rotations can be achieved by locking the desired axes of rotation and transforming the rest of the axes by \(sin\) and \(cos\). 3x3 matrices can be used to bend the coordinate space in 3 dimensions, effectively allowing any desired transformations to objects in that space. As the coordinate space is being transformed, it’s helpful breaking up the matrix into its unit vectors $$ \vec{a} = x\begin{bmatrix}1\\0\\0\end{bmatrix} + y\begin{bmatrix}0\\1\\0\end{bmatrix} + z\begin{bmatrix}0\\0\\1\end{bmatrix} $$...

Making an Osu Banner

After submitting my last osu fanart, I decided to make my own osu banner. My profile was looking pretty empty without one and I figured after all that work to put together my own rendition of Enchanted Love, might as well put those meshes to more use. I wanted to keep it fairly simple as I know I’m pretty limited in gif size and quality for it to work as a profile banner (otherwise if it’s too large, the auto-compression will convert the image into a static jpeg)....

Making Osu Fanart

osu! Fanarts? Osu holds several fanart contest every year with themes often related to the time of year. Themes such as Winter or Halloween are such examples. Regardless of theme, the general idea seems to always be to draw any of the osu mascots inside or partaking in said theme. At the time I had been playing osu for about 4 months and really enjoying it. On the other hand, I’ve been drawing casually for a few years as a hobby so it seemed naturally to want to give these contests a shot....

Some Casual Art

I’ve been trying to get into the habit of drawing casually as opposed to doing so as part of some contest or project. Part of that is just drawing what I feel in the moment. I’m not intending to follow any style but at the same time I’m not stopping myself from easing any habits which resulted with a few pictures that do share a style. I always felt with drawing that I have no clue what my style is....
