    Now you just need the legs and the gallbladder

    [–] Lighting suggestions? KyleTheScientist 2 points ago in blender

    The models are not good but I'm more interested in criticism on the lighting/post. It's a factor that evades me in every render and I want to improve

    [–] r/place but the pixels were placed with low opacity such that the most fought over pixels are darker [OC] KyleTheScientist 666 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in dataisbeautiful

    I did my best to darken the colors for better effect, but yes, dark colors do show up better

    EDIT: I also lightened the darker colors for this reason

    [–] r/place but the pixels were placed with low opacity such that the most fought over pixels are darker [OC] KyleTheScientist 468 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in dataisbeautiful

    I got the dataset from /u/Drunken_Economist's post. I sorted the file by timestamp and uploaded it here.

    After sorting the data I rendered it in Processing from start to finish, giving each pixel an opacity of 10/255.

    You can very clearly see that people wanted to give Mona Lisa nips, and that the maitenance of the hammer and sickle was a hard-fought battle. It also looks like the back of a marker drawing.

    EDIT: Some people were asking for a least touched pixels visualization. Please ignore the red "Done" in the corner :)

    EDIT2: For those of you who do not know what r/place is, here is an explanation from /u/Parcent:

    r/place was this years April Fools' Day social experiment that Reddit launches yearly. To sum it up, it was basically a giant collaborative online drawing that everyone could see in live action, where each user could place a single pixel anywhere and in any color on a digital "canvas", before being given a 5-10 minute cool down before they could place another one. The general idea was that everyone could work together to make artwork (or just vandalize the place).

    I made a version of the data sorted by timestamp and uploaded it to dropbox here.
