Clone of fs Arc Test 1:1, which was started on Fri, 27th August, 11:59 AM 2010.
As simple as this fs may appear to be, it was much more complex to pull off. The curves and angles just did not match. The original version was at filter 1:1. Today--after a long time--I had enough free time to play around. Cloned and upped the filter to 2:2 (well, 1.75:1.75 to be exact). The 0.25 offset was initially put into place for the creative process, just so I know which brick was where. The breaks became a design element somewhere along the way. That caused additional brick placement problems. A full 2:2 filter would have made things much easier. Regardless, I am reasonably satisfied with the outcome. Needless to say, each glyph went through a whole bunch of iterations before settling on what's currently visible. Not all turned out good. The 'V', for instance. Who knows, better solutions may exist.
Take a square, split it horizontally, vertically and diagonally. This gives just 16 line segments to work with. I have a book where the author lists every possible combination of those 16 line segments. That gives a staggering 65535 total possibilities. And that's just straight lines. I mention this because the uppercase grid here is 6×8=48 bricks (counting one 2:2 brick as 4 1:1 bricks). Then there is the possibility of using a whole slew of 4×4 brick shape. I am not even going to attempt to figure out how many total possible combinations that makes but I am sure it is a number much larger than 65535.
The point is, with so many possible brick combinations, better solutions most probably exist. I just may be too narrow-minded to visualize them.
