    var ix = constrain(floor(px), 0, width-1);
    var iy = constrain(floor(py), 0, height-1);
    var rx = px + random(0,6); // randomize line x-value

I chose a photo of my gorgeous current roommate (although the style of the photo made it hard to really capture her eyes!). I knew I wanted to do lines in order to emulate “strokes” and to further emulate this, I tried to vary the stroke weights as well as direction and lengths of the line. I didn’t want to make the line extend too far in order to ensure that facial features could moderately be made out.

I very much admire impressionist type paintings and so I tried to emulate thicker brush strokes. I made the frame rate ‘50000000’ because I preferred to see the photo render quickly. Below are photos further in to rendering and near completion.
