Scrub and me were just messing around, taking a bit of a break from Paint. He thought it would be interesting for us to write a topview Minecraft in Pico. I took it to mean it would be on a dot level and wrote some code to randomly create colors on the screen, bricks to build with.
But when you take out the colors and mirror the screen, you get a very nice Rorschach Test image.
NOTE: Every test picture has exactly 1001 pixels, no more, no less ! (or 2002 if you count the mirror).
What do you see ?
Post some of your favorites if you like and tell us what you think it is !
It's what you make it as its truly just random dots. I played with it a bit and managed to get what I thought looked like two very pretty angels with wings.
I was wondering if I should set it so the background is WHITE and the plot is BLACK, like a true Rorschach card.
RND() function must have been biased or manipulated by unknown evil forces because I see mostly reptilians and aliens!!! Ha, ha. No, seriously, this is a simple but interesting "pixel-art" generation tool.
I've changed the code a little and integrated my own broken "thinning image" function so in this version there are 3 modes (no mirror, horizontal mirror or vertical+horizontal mirror), functionality to convert monochrome to 16 colours and palette rotation.
Hmm, I like the 3D effect ... I was thinking later of setting it up so you can record your Rorschach, you can save any number of them to your favorites.
But - later, now that I've got a new mindset on the code I'm working on, I wanna see if I can make some progress with it first.
