Tessellation Tutorial / Step 12

12. Use your imagination! What does the shape on your page look like?

Is it like a fish? A bird? A lizard, cat, monster, African animal, or a sailboat?

Please DO NOT closely copy my lines or theme. Instead, be creative. Use your imagination. Be original. Experiment. Have a look at this wonderfully original fox tessellation made by a kid using this lesson.
Compare that to these pictures done by people who just copied my example. They show good hand-skill, but wouldn't their art be so much more entertaining, if they had trusted themselves enough to experiment? Have a look at Rhinos and Triceratops.
