Derby #95: Pointillism
Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.
Space, design, geometry: it all starts with a single point. Add another, you've got a line. Add thousands more and not only do new shapes emerge, but you'll start seeing colors that "aren't there", three-dimensional forms, and other magical apparitions conjured by the power of assembled dots. Wikipedia defines Pointillism as "a style of painting in which small distinct dots of primary colors create the impression of a wide selection of secondary and intermediate colors." Famously made, uh, famous by Georges-Pierre Seurat, the magic is in your hands this week. Use small, simple points of color to create large, complex forms and shades. The subject matter is up to you, as long as the rendering is Pointillistically correct.
Wondering about point size, halftones, colors, etc.? Consult Prof. Hotpants' comments on those matters.
