cow head motif tessellation

COWZ by Andrew

In this tessellation, Andrew displays a lot of talent on the computer. He 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 Andrew to try again, though, because during this first attempt he didn't venture too far past the tutorial. Andrew's "Cowz" 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 Andrew would do with a little more confidence and encouragement to experiment and invent. Keep on doing tessellations, Andrew. Now that you know how to do it, challenge yourself to show us how very creative you can be. :-)
