For my final project, I am going to be making a face that is complied with many other smaller faces. Throughout the semester I have created projects that all include the idea of a smiley face or an adaptation of one. I have felt compelled to continue this series for the final assignment.

This assignment will include arrays that make up portions of the face as well as a slew of colors and shapes that will give my project a colorful and unique contrast. I hope that my assignment will provide a finale to my previous projects, while also showing improvement and creativity.

I will utilize some of my old style smiley faces, and incorporate other, new smiley faces in order to have a variety of shapes and contrasts among all the faces, and the large face they are creating.

I incorporated:

→ A circle grid with nested loops

→ mouseX and mouseY to paint a smiley onto the canvas in various locations

→ created a button that changes its background color when the mouse hovers over it

→ used mouseIsPressed to change both the colors of the grid circles and make the smiley face appear each time the mouse is pressed

This week's homework was based on creating a piece utilizing movement commands.

Here is my interpretation:

This work was inspired by the faces of my last homework piece, but I did not have an artwork that I used as a reference. While I learned commands for creating a smiley face, it was challenging to apply this to a moving object, which is why I decided to stick to abstract shapes. I enjoy the randomization and movement included in this homework, which also made it challenging.
