Tessellation

The thing that I tiled my plane with was a dinosaur and it was kind of cool. At first, I couldn't think of anything but finally I thought of something and it came out to be just fine. The thing that got me so into this were the figures that the other kids made and they were cool to look at. I think that this was fun doing and I would like to do some more of these tessellations. The way I got this was I drew a square and distorted it. I translated the black dinosaur and then I made it white. I selected the lasso on my tools and than I made a tessellation.
