I’ve been obsessed with this illustration for a while now and really want to build an animated/generative version of it. But, as usual I have no idea how to do that.
The aim is to get those paths to flow across the screen with an organic movement. Which probably means using a 2D Perlin noise field. This is just a first step towards animating Jupiter.
Next step is figuring out how to make those tentacle like paths. Probably using spline extrusions.
