Homework 4

Due date

This homework is due on March 1, 2011 at mid-night. and must be submitted as a .pde file to the UNCA moodle activity HW 4. Because you are asked to use images in this program, you must also submit all image files that you use to Moodle as well.

The Task

Write a program which incorporates a simple animation that tells a story. It can be any story, for example, it could be a story about falling snow, ghosts, angels, Valentines Day, Groundhog Day, etc. You must use use at least one image (e.g., a .gif, .png, or .jpg file) in your program, but focus on the use of setup() and draw() to have a little motion that seems smooth and doesn't end in a mass of wrecked tangles.

Use a screen size of 400×400, and don't forget to document the date, your name, and the purpose of the program, in comments at the start of your program.
