A failed attempt remained my favorite from the bunch.

Technically speaking this is a failure, because you can't really read any of the text here - finding the right balance of fluidity v legibility remains one of the key challenges. To add contrast, I introduced a thick black stroke which covers the thick magenta strokes about 60% of the time, but the interplay got so intense that the letters are losing its form... yet this remains one of my favorites as the letters truly come to life in this form. I believe that adding a touch of the letter contour should solve the issue - but since I am not directly drawing on the canvas but rather setting up parameters and rendering them, it ha taken much longer than I would have hoped. Each of these renderings take 8-20 mins for a 1280x720 rectangle seen here.



See for complete evolution.
