canvas_strokes {aRtsy}R Documentation

Draw Strokes

Description

This function creates an artwork that resembles paints strokes. The algorithm is based on the simple idea that each next point on the grid has a chance to take over the color of an adjacent colored point but also has a change of generating a new color.

Usage

canvas_strokes(colors, neighbors = 1, p = 0.01, iterations = 1,
               resolution = 500, side = FALSE)

Arguments

colors

a string or character vector specifying the color(s) used for the artwork.

neighbors

a positive integer specifying the number of neighbors a block considers when taking over a color. More neighbors fades the artwork.

p

a value specifying the probability of selecting a new color at each block. A higher probability adds more noise to the artwork.

iterations

a positive integer specifying the number of iterations of the algorithm. More iterations generally apply more fade to the artwork.

resolution

resolution of the artwork in pixels per row/column. Increasing the resolution increases the quality of the artwork but also increases the computation time exponentially.

side

logical. Whether to put the artwork on its side.

Value

A ggplot object containing the artwork.
