In my last post , I talked about coloring a de Jong attractor based on the number of times each point in the image was generated by the de Jong equations. Of course, there are other ways to do it! Since we have more than one way, we’d better name them so we don’t get confused. We’ll call the first method Frequency Coloring since it’s based on how frequently each point appears.
In my last post , I took a first stab at coloring a de Jong attractor. Here was my image: The main problem was that I had wanted an image in which the points with the fewest hits were blue, transforming to red for points hit the highest number of times, but as you can see, the image was stubbornly mostly blue, whereas I would have expected a lot of shades of purple as the blue transformed to red.
Hello! By now you have seen Tandika's article explaining why it’s been so long since we have posted anything. It’s been a wild three years! Things are finally getting back to normal (although as she mentioned, a new normal.) This post, as well as the next several “The Artist’s Husband” posts, were written three years ago, when I thought they’d be published. I’ll post these about once a week until I work through the backlog.
