cow head motif tessellation

COWS by Ornella

In this tessellation, Ornella displays a lot of talent on the computer. Ornella pretty clearly used our "line method 1" do-it-yourself tessellation lesson.

As a first attempt at following a tessellation lesson, it's well done. I'd like Ornella to try again, though, because during this first attempt Ornella didn't venture too far past the tutorial. Ornella's "Cows" are a pretty close copy of the tutorial's sample tessellate pattern, which is also heads of cows with roughly the same pose. I think we'd all like to see what Ornella would do with a little more confidence and encouragement to experiment and invent. Keep on doing tessellations, Ornella. Now that you know how to do it, challenge yourself to show us how very creative you can be. :-)
