This project was made around the same time as the Reflections project, but I cannot remember which was written first.
The \((x,y)\) values are determined using functions of a variable, \(t\), and a parameter, \(q\):
\(x = f(t;q)\), \(y = g(t;q)\), where the different colours correspond to different values of \(q\).
- Challenge: This project required a smooth colour gradient for best effect.
- Solution: This was one of the first times I needed to make a smooth colour gradient, and it is not as trivial as I might like. I found a way to quickly create an arbitrary colour gradient, which would help with many projects in the future, especially those that involve fractals. (Resolved)
Here is the output for \(x = 3\sin(q+2t\pi)\), \(y=t^2\), \(-1\lt t \lt 1\), \(0\lt q \lt 1\)
