Following digital excavation efforts at my disk’s deep directories, I stumbled upon a collection of colorful pseudo-random walk graphics. Since they are dated September of 2015 and were generated using unidiomatic slow snake script, their only property of note is a visually jolly aura; the following three possess a particularly vibrant one:

Not every pseudo-random walk has been given enough time to cover a substantial portion of the plane or has been painted harmonically; nevertheless, all I found are listed below.
Whereas some walks are walked on a directly pixel-mapped finite discrete rectangle \mathbb{Z}_n\times\mathbb{Z}_m, others draw a circle with a considerable pixel diameter for each lattice point. As such, the resulting graphics require a hefty chunk of disk space — from under 8 MiB to over 128 MiB.
