Fractal Leaf 1a

Sticky Elemental Snow

For my talk at FOTB 2007, I wanted to walk the audience through developing an algorithm. Since fractals are so wonderful, I picked a very simple example and started exploring it: the development of a fractal leaf or tree.

In this version, I'm discovering the vertices needed to define the shape of the leaf as it grows. The red dots mark the vertices for each iteration.
