STCK is basically a recoding of TUX. They both simply move a form in a square or rectangle while leaving a trail behind. When bouncing a border the form changes direction, position and color or any other parameter that can be changed. The most important difference is of course the use of the stickmen (STCK) instead of the block men (TUX).
With STCK there is obviously more focus on the interplay of lines. But when the lines are next to each other or have large overlapping widths, you get more 'painterly' fill effects.
At a certain point there was a bug. The moving form didn't seem to be able to get away from a border of the square. The form, stuck on a border, changed its color and size very rapidly each time it tried to bounce off. I think I got rid of it in the last versions. It still happens, but not too often.
When drawing and keeping tiny white spaces between the lines of the stickmen, some glorious moiré effects happen. On screen they are probably a bit annoying, but on paper they are great to look at. It's almost impossible to show the sharpness of the tiny lines on these web pages in images with a resolution of only 72 dpi and a size of 800x800 pixels. A detail is sometimes added to illustrate that these works are nothing more than layers of pure lines, colored or in black and white.
