W : No outline(regular drawing)
P : Purple

What you can do with it:

You can make 3d drawings and colorful things!

Credits:

@DynamicSquid for inspiring me to do my own java processing stuff
@Coder100
for always answering my questions
@adsarebbbad
and @RayhanADev For helping me with my questions
And yeah
Originally i was just messing around with Java Processing, then I had a bug and it made a 3d sketch! I added some stuff (with the help of some people) and boom I have this.

Comment what I should make next, whether it be a tutorial, or it be a post, I am always open to suggestions. :D

Tip: The slower you go the more fine the outline is, the faster you go the farther apart the circles are.

How to set it up! Click the screen then press s if you want it to go back to normal, I suggest opening in a new tab.

Upvote if you want but you dont have too

Suggestions in the comments please :D

Edit: also big thank you to @theangryepicbanana for the great template :D

Update 0.0.4 Added an eraser and outline give-backer!

Update 0.0.5 Added different bg and Controls on the bottom!

Dude nice program! Creative use of Java Processing. Upvoted!

I would suggest changing the stroke color to be a darker shade of the current color, and maybe that might look more streamlined. Or you could make a rainbow mode where the color gradually changes in rainbows! I think it would also be a rad tutorial!

Also, what did I even help with xD. It was practically @adsarebbbad lol.

@RayhanADev thanks for the suggestions!

Well you were really nice to me and you practically said the same thing as @adsarebbbad so ...

@elipie okeydokey!

Profile icon

@RayhanADev im not that good at java processing yet, but I will try to implement your suggestions!

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie kewl! Keep trying at Java Processing, you will get really good soon, I haven’t a doubt 😋

elipie

thanks! You are so kind! @RayhanADev

@RayhanADev

Changing the stroke color

hmm wdym by stroke color

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie Stroke = Outline. It’s typically the name used in most programming languages for the outline of a shape.

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev oh but it the stroke is black...

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie Yep! My suggestion is to change the stroke color using stroke(); so that it is a darker shade of your current color.

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev hmm, good idea, ill try implementing your ideas soon I am in virtual school rn actually lol

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev okay i dont think im going to add the stroke thing, because it kinda takes away the 3d, and i will try to add the rainbow thing

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie It does? Huh well it’s your choice! Probably for the better xD.

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev yeah, sorry, i really like having suggestions, just it kinda ruins it, sorry if i hurt your feelings, lol.

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie m8, it takes a whole lot more to hurt my feelings xD. Also dude it’s your program, I just had a random idea lmao.

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev lmao okay also im just gonna add more colors, not the rainbow, cause it causes the program to error, srry lol. Ill add them when I get better xD

Profile icon
RayhanADev

@elipie Haha wow, ok well that’s cool.

Profile icon
elipie

@RayhanADev yeah im not that good yet, but I did add more colors!

Profile icon
CursorsDev

since you want a suggestion, i suggest making it drag to draw

Profile icon
elipie

@CursorsDev hmm i didnt want to implement this because it is supposed to be a drawing thing. Suggestion to fix it: go faster to go less circles, and go slower to make it more circles.

Profile icon
CursorsDev

the controls dont work for me :'(

Profile icon
CursorsDev

oh i have to click on the canvas

Profile icon
CursorsDev

er, this can be fixed by using .focus() on the canvas :)

Profile icon
elipie

@CursorsDev oh yeah! Sorry for not replying sooner, i have assignments :D

Profile icon
ThroneUnknown

Cool but perhaps create an eraser?

Profile icon
elipie

@ThroneUnknown Hmm yes, the short way to do that right now is to hit s then f but then you cant go back to regular drawing, Yes let me add this!

Profile icon
elipie

@ThroneUnknown oops i mean s then w

Profile icon
elipie

@ThroneUnknown Done! Use E to erase Then Z to give back the outline!

ChezTacoz

pretty cool!! Just 2 things:

  1. How do u change the color of the circles?
  2. Can u make it so it only draws when u click down cause then u cant control it and there are circles everywhere and it makes me nauseous
Profile icon
elipie

@ChezTacoz hello ChezTacoz! read the controls, its in the desc, but i will be adding the controls on the side so you can see it at all times, and 2, no, sorry, it is a not click down thing but here is a solution: Move your mouse/touch pad really fast, and it wont draw any circles. The slower, the finer, the faster, the less circles

Profile icon
ChezTacoz

@elipie oki thx!

Profile icon
elipie

@ChezTacoz oh and sorry if you get a script error i think there is something wrong with my java. lol
