What it does

Basically, we extract here an art from code, & from my end, it's called Generic Art

How we built it

import PIL, random, sys
from PIL import Image, ImageDraw
origDimension = 1500
r = lambda: random.randint(50,215)
rc = lambda: (r(), r(), r())
listSym = []
def create_square(border, draw, randColor, element, size):
  if (element == int(size/2)):
    draw.rectangle(border, randColor)
  elif (len(listSym) == element+1):
    draw.rectangle(border, randColor)
def create_invader(border, draw, size):
  x0, y0, x1, y1 = border
  squareSize = (x1-x0)/size
  randColors = [rc(), rc(), rc(), (0,0,0), (0,0,0), (0,0,0)]
  i = 1
  for y in range(0, size):
    i *= -1
    element = 0
    for x in range(0, size):
      topLeftX = x*squareSize + x0
      topLeftY = y*squareSize + y0
      botRightX = topLeftX + squareSize
      botRightY = topLeftY + squareSize
      create_square((topLeftX, topLeftY, botRightX, botRightY), draw, random.choice(randColors), element, size)
      if (element == int(size/2) or element == 0):
        i *= -1;
      element += i
def main(size, invaders, imgSize):
  origDimension = imgSize
  origImage ='RGB', (origDimension, origDimension))
  draw = ImageDraw.Draw(origImage)
  invaderSize = origDimension/invaders
  padding = invaderSize/size
  for x in range(0, invaders):
    for y in range(0, invaders):
      topLeftX = x*invaderSize + padding/2
      topLeftY = y*invaderSize + padding/2
      botRightX = topLeftX + invaderSize - padding
      botRightY = topLeftY + invaderSize - padding
      create_invader((topLeftX, topLeftY, botRightX, botRightY), draw, size)"Examples/Example-"+str(size)+"x"+str(size)+"-"+str(invaders)+"-"+str(imgSize)+".jpg")
if __name__ == "__main__":
  main(int(sys.argv[1]), int(sys.argv[2]), int(sys.argv[3]))

Once you have the environment set up, you can copy my code into a file with extension .py and execute with the following command:


For example, the command to create the first matrix of sprites from above would be:

python 7 30 1900

Challenges we ran into

100 lines of code :x

Accomplishments that we're proud of

But, finally done :)

What we learned

to extracts some beautiful images with codes.

What's next for Generative art

Its really cool :D wanna extract some more!
