Welcome to Patterns!
In this topic we're going to explore the geometry behind the creation of dinosaur skin.
- Appropriate for grades five and up
- Create a model for your own dinosaur skin using a Voronoi partition.
- Appropriate for grades six and up
- Use randomness to generate realistic looking patterns for your dinosaur skin.

- Are there different techniques that you use?(30 votes)
- What I think this is about is what the dinosaur scales look like up close and how big they are. For example a lizard (lets say an anole) skin is smooth and you probably can't see their scales, but they are there. So how big their radius is would be how big their scales would be I think. Its basically all Math! if you think about it(11 votes)
- Is this what they used for Arlo in the good dinosaur?(9 votes)
- If you are feeling down, remember that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and twice as beautiful as you have ever imagined <3

- A marshmallow is approx. 1 inch (2.54cm)(1 vote)
- Would this be the basis of what game developers use to create procedurally generated terrains for their game?(2 votes)
- Partially. Minecraft uses a lot of Perlin Noise, but you'd probably need to set out additional parameters to give your environments interesting features (towns, forests, ect).(1 vote)
