Monkey- A Series of Generative Art Things

Hey guys and gals!
I decided to take some time off and make a few little hobby projects I've had floating around in my head.

First up is a Pointillist Bot! Quite simply, it "paints" pictures using ever shrinking brushes, until it eventually gets to the final state of the picture. I've included a video below.


Second item on the menu is Monkeyspeare, an experimental word changer thing. This plays off of the Infinite Monkey Theorem, that an "infinite monkey" could create the works of Shakespeare by randomly smacking away at a keyboard. This is a little less random than the actual theorem, but its pretty interested regardless.


Last up on the list if MonkeyPaint, a program that generates a song based on a painting you create!
You can download MonkeyPaint here- http://db.tt/vYQZt0tX
Directions are in the intro, but for the sake of clarity...
Q&W change Hue
A&S change Saturation
Z&X change Value
N&M change brush size
B changes the brush
R resets the canvas

I will be making quite a few of these, so expect updates!

Amazing! Are you using shaders?

No shaders! This is using just a canvas (and I really don't even need that if I decided to rewrite the love.run function)

OK, Monkeyspeare HD is just plain art. I love it...

Thanks mate!

I just updated the Pointillist Bot to a HD version (its longer too).

Just added MonkeyPaint, a drawing tool/audio matrix experiment.
