Jared Tarbell’s “Sand Traveller” in AS3

2008-05-26: I fixed some parts of this port. For further details check the updated works post.

I saved one of my favorites by Jared Tarbell’s for now. The algorithm amazed me almost as much as Substrate did, but when i decided to port Tarbell’s works i knew i could put a little sugar into this one.

I started converting it straight ahead but i also added new blending modes. This implementation is basically Tarbell’s third variation of the original implementation. I made it so that the traveler’s sandpainters will either pick additive or subtractive blending. This leads to some pretty nice results.

I didn’t add a smaller version inside this post as it needs some time to develop and it also needs a certain size so you can fully appreciate it. So please check out the large version (1000×1000).

Be sure to also grab the source and check out the originals by Tarbell.

I also added a preview version:
