Simple Hexagon Forest - p5.js

ep028 - Aug 2, 2019

What started as an experiment to recreate something like this image grew legs and turning into a kind of “breathing” forest.

It might not look like much more than the Spiritualised cover from last time, but it actually took a lot more learning to get there. I had to add in learning about lights, their positioning and the kinds of material that can take them.

By default p5.js vertex shapes dont take light. You need to add a material ( in this case specularMaterial() ) to gain the effect.
