Science The Learn Something Every Week Contest

I learned how to do fake calligraphy this week. Never mind that I already know how to do real calligraphy, you can do the fakey shit with any old pen.

You just write it in regular script and then go back and widen the downstrokes. :fap:

You also gotta make the original script wide enough, which I alternated between remembering and forgetting to do, which is why the keming is all over the place.

Art Re: The Learn Something Every Week Contest

Okay, maybe not every week.

I was down the rabbit hole on youtube the other morning and I ran into this one:

Finding the Edges (Sobel Operator) - Computerphile - YouTube

and I got nostalgic for computer vision, so I banged out an edge detector in python real quick using the methods from the video:

I still want to do the part where you color the edges to show the orientation, but the parts after that are less pretty and therefore less interesting to me so I probably won't bother.

Did you see my vintage plotter refurbishment thread? You can see there I used a variant of Sobel to find edges (in a photo of Zsa Zsa) turned them into HPGL plot commands and plotted them out. The actual drawing begins about one minute in - up to there it's just getting the plotter set up.
I've since done some work on trying to work out which colour pens to use to draw the outlines of different shapes - but I got sidetracked with other projects. I need to get back to that.
