A magic flower (a series of animations using p5.js)

I coworked with Joy and it was really fun. One interesting idea inspired by Joy is that when clicking one of the leaf, it grows higher, and clicking another leaf to make it shorter.

MouseClick

First of all I did a lot of mathematics, to make my two leaves some kind of button. Basically I used two rectangle to represent my leaves.

When you click the left leaf, it grows higher. And the faster you click, the faster it moves.Screen Shot 2015-09-22 at 10.50.22 PM

When you click the right leaf it becomes shorter.

MouseOver

When the mouse is over either the flower or the leaves, the color changes faster.

Scrolling

When you scroll the background changes from dark to bright.

Other

You can notice that I made some other effect to let it swing back and forth. The curve of this stick is drawn by bezier, and the displacement of the flower is determined by a sine function, namely

xShift = amplitude * sin(2*PI*time/period).

 

Below is my code:

//This is going to be a beautiful flower: stick, petals, center, leaves.
//It automatically changes its color. If you press the center of it, it will change faster.
//You can click the leaves to make it grow higher or shorter. (smoothly)
var hTrue;
var h,s,b; //of petals. Max 255 for all.
var hBack, sBack, bBack; //of background. Max 360,100,100 for hue, saturation and brightness.
var rStroke, gStroke, bStroke; //if it's too bright then swtich the stroke to gold, else white.

var xShift, yShift; //x shift of flower, positive means left, negative means right
var yCenter; //y coordinate of center
var yStick; //y coordinate of stick
var growValue;//pixels for the flower to move upward (negative means downward)

var phase; //frames over time
