3D Artist - Make 3D anaglyph art in Scratch

In this project from Cool Scratch Projects in Easy Steps you'll see how to make 3D art by arranging shapes in different positions and at different depths

About this project

Using the special 3D anaglyph glasses, you can create 3D art by positioning images in three dimensions. This project Includes a random option that generates random artworks before your eyes, slowly enough for you to see the decisions it takes. For this project, you'll need a pair of 3D red/cyan glasses. There's a pair with the print edition and you can pick up extras cheaply online (search for "anaglyph glasses" and get a red/cyan pair).
