sloth pixel art - john kurczewski
First, I suppose I should say that I consider the sloth to be my spirit animal. Originally for this project I imagined an image of a sloth crossing a road "exploding" over another image of a sloth road, with the "exploding" image being one of a more dead-looking sloth on a road. However, I didn't figure out how to do that, and it may have been a bit morbid (but what would a sloth be doing on a road anyway? at the speed they move, that's essentially a suicide attempt).
So instead i opted to have the pixels of one image of a sloth spread out horizontally (and symmetrically) onto a blank screen, line by line, correlating with a click on the original image. This way, the entire process of copying the image is thoroughly... sloth-like, as evidenced by the video which takes 3 minutes just to copy ythe portion of the image with the sloth's face. Also, as shown at the very end of the video, a mouse-controlled freehand etch-a-sketch effect is also a possibility to create the image.
