Canvas 9 - 2018/02/03 ... 2018/04/01

Canvas 10 >


The 9th canvas once again started with an image - this time in the form of a nervous Spurdo - a Discord emote that was created during the 3rd canvas' war on the Spurdo faction.

Conflict was once again fairly low, although Green Lattice - now mostly new members - overstepped their bounds and were pushed back from perceived ill-gained territory.

As the canvas filled up, the corner squares were later unlocked, allowing people to place pixels there as well, leading to a frenzy of new builds.

Untouched pixels

Pixels that were never placed on (also referred to as virgin pixels), depicted in white.

Pixel age

Age of pixels as a brightness map. Darker pixels were placed longer ago.

Heat map

Depicting activity on the canvas as a heat map - the brighter a pixel's color, the more often it was placed on.

Personal project and helpers

On the 9th canvas, I (r_Stargate), continued the theme of electronic schematics, this time with a large project; a 1-in-64 PRSG based on old logic chipps.
Being a large project that was relatively easy to draw, people wanting to draw it or just didn't have anything better to do quickly came to my assistance.
Though most analyses are anonymous, for this particular project - and this particular project only - I decided to figure out who helped. The results can be seen below.

Layers JSON file

This zip:layers.json.txt file contains the layer information as used by the pxlsFiddle templating utility for Canvas 9.
It can be used to re-construct many projects on the canvas as well as identify their canvas authors.
