Fractal Leaf 1c

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've used the vertices discovered in earlier versions to define the shape of the leaf as it grows. I've also moved the starting point, so that the leaf has a stem.
