Rhinceroses tessellate in this first-time tessellation by a 9th grade child

RHINOS from Tiffany

These are rhinocersoseseses. Ummmm... rhinoceri? Rhinonoseroses? Noseneruosises? I give up. They're big African animals, OK?
They're also cats: copy cats.

The tessellation shows good hand skill, and a nice balance of color. I hope now that Tiffany has confidence, her next tessellation will show more experimenting, trying to improve the shape or trying to start with a theme she invents herself. A good tessellation is wonderful, but add more originality to it and it's a whole new level of wonderful.
To help Tiffany do that,
here's a great, funny essay on how to choose a tessellation theme: "Choose Easy Themes".
Below is the tessellation theme upon which Tiffany based her rhinnoccerrositoustuositoustuous...uhhh.. big African animals. It's from our tracing paper tessellation lesson.


copy cats. This is the rhino tessellation pattern that was copied from a tutorial lesson on tessellations.org
