Blender 2.8 Grease Pencil Scripting and Generative Art

0

5agado explores the possibilities of generating shapes and motion through Blender 2.8's Python scripting.

What: learning the basics of scripting for Blender Grease-Pencil tool, with focus on generative art as a concrete playground. Less talking, more code (commented) and many examples.

Why: mostly because we can. Also because Blender is a very rich ecosystem, and Grease-Pencil in version 2.8 is a powerful and versatile tool. Generative art is a captivating way to showcase the tool potential: if you love Python and don’t feel like learning Processing, or are still unsure about venturing with p5.js or Three.js, here you will find the perfect playground.

Who: Python ≥ 3.6 and Blender 2.8. I took inspiration from other resources on generative art, in particular the book Generative Art by Matt Pearson and the Kadenze online course Generative Art and Computational Creativity.
