This website follows that exploration; from simple explorations with delaunay triangulation to an algorithm that provides a compelling low-poly animation of the artwork. Ideally, one page would have combined the ability to randomly generate a series of triangles with an ability to add to that by clicking on the canvas. But I decided to leave the efforts separate so I could more finely tune each experiment.
Ultimately, I would like to create a low-poly drawing program that not only allows the user to select their image and have it randomly “triangulated” but also encourage the user to use drawing tools such as pencil to add single points, an area point eraser, and a random point sprayer. Both the eraser and point sprayer would have controllable brush size.Create your own low-poly artRead my low-poly children’s book
