What is Picture to People ?
"Picture to People" (P2P) is a huge Computer Graphics project. It was started to create new softwares able to make 2D drawing, 3D rendering, vexel drawing, text effects, photo effects, image filtering and other complex Computer Graphics operations. It has been made from scratch, including its low level Computer Graphics libraries like Maccala. Nowadays, most final features produced for this project are released as free online tools available from its official website. This blog talks about Computer Graphics, mainly concerning Picture to People development.

Splines on the scene
I'm improving my sources concerning curves. Considering their math properties, splines are the classical choice.
I have been trying to do a very robust and modularized implementation. I'm preparing an infrastructure that will be used in future for interactive drawing of curves by the final user.
Interactive drawing is a very interesting challenge that asks special planning, cause it can require immediate answers for nontrivial operations.
The picture shows a multi-curve created by "self point parametrization". A curve can be created by "control point parametrization" as well.
