January '06 Installment: Dryads

Dryad — a deity or nymph of the woods

About "Dryads"

I have to admit that "Dryads" is pretty much last months concept, revamped. There are a two reasons for this:

  1. It is okay to milk a novel idea. Recycling is good.
  2. I've been busy elsewhere and needed something light and relaxing.

Reason #1 explains itself.

Reason #2 deserves explanation; coming up with a concept is the hard part. Once that concept has been formulated, elaborated and actualized, it's just play from there. Happy 2006, and be nice to the trees this year!

  1. No worries. I’m actually glad you did a rehash. Often I’m just sitting here thinking, “only five?”.

    2 would make a nice desktop.

    Regarding the UI for the installations, once the number links have been clicked and they’re colored differently they’re nigh invisble. Makes going back a tad difficult and lord knows I have to view them all three or four times.

  2. ?only five??.

    ONLY FIVE!? Gah you almost gave me a heart attack! Where’s my inhaler, oh, there…

    But seriously, 5 works well for me. For most ideas, I feel like I’ve “explored the concept” thoroughly when I’m through with 5. As I’ve said sometime before, there’s a certain rhythm now (after 5 years almost). There’s the difficult #1, the quick #2, the bad #3, the varying #4 and the #5 that’s either quickly done or extra elaborate and cared for.

    Hmm… I’d have said 1, 4 or 5. I actually think 2 is a bit too complex and confusing…

    I know I know… it’s on my list, but lately I’ve been following my bliss rather than my priorities ;). The solution is, of course, to work in a “visited state” color variable, where now it’s simply the complimentary color. I’ll do a quick fix.

  3. I think these are actually better than the “original”. The snow works really well with the lighttrails to give a fairy tale feel. Excellent work, keep it up.
