Description of this creative coding work.

Creative coding work made with Processing.

I'm interested in Random Walk. I liked to make some tendency to move in a linear path not completely random move.

This code does not display any images on the screen but generates image files in frames directory.

Processing code example.

Please feel free to use this code, if you like it.
To see other works based on my code is my pleasure. And my honor.
