there isn't much else to say about this other than what victor has said. it is a simple static image.

float radius = 250; int maxpoints = 600; int diameter; int[] coord; int[] arr = new int[2]; int draughtboard = 5; void setup() { size(600, 600); background(0); smooth(); // anti-aliasing noFill(); noStroke(); noLoop(); } void draw() { // Draw a draughtboard drawDraughtboard(); // Draw ellipses within a big circle for (int i = 0; i < maxpoints; i++) { // fill with a random colour fill(randcol()); coord = randomCoord(); diameter = floor(random(12)); ellipse(coord[0], coord[1], diameter, diameter); } } // Draws a draughtboard void drawDraughtboard() { for (int i = 0; i < width; i += draughtboard) { for (int j = 0; j < height; j += draughtboard) { if((i+j) % 2 == 0) // if S is even (uses modulo) fill(0); else fill(30); rect(i, j, draughtboard, draughtboard); } } } // Returns random coordinates // if the points are within a 250 pixels radius // from the centre of the sketch int[] randomCoord() { arr[0] = floor(random(width)); arr[1] = floor(random(height)); // If the random point is within the circle, return the coordinates if(dist(arr[0], arr[1], width/2, height/2) < radius) { return arr; } // Otherwise re-iterate the function else { return randomCoord(); } } // Returns a random colour // // Range 60-220 to avoid too bright // or too dark colours color randcol() { int r = floor(random(60, 220)); int g = floor(random(60, 220)); int b = floor(random(60, 220)); //int a = floor(random(70, 100)); // removed alpha, not aesthetically pleasant with the draughtboard return color(r, g, b); }

This is quite simple but required me to work on my very poor maths skillsâ€¦ the use of functions helped a lot to structure the code.

Basically it's just a checkerboard in the background , and circles of various colours which are mathematically placed into a bigger circle at the centre of the image.

there was an idea to try to put Equilateral Triangles but could not figure out the math formula behind it to repeat it.

really nice response to the brief, a big circle made out of little ones simple but effective. Well structured code too.
