If clicking does not initiate a download, try right clicking or control clicking and choosing "Save" or "Download".

(You can also run this model in your browser, but we don't recommend it; details here.)

WHAT IS IT?

Ghostly lines

HOW IT WORKS

Turtles with pen down follow the mouse. They all have different x and y velocity reducing multipliers

HOW TO USE IT

Push go to start the model. Move the mouse around. Click the view at any time to erase the drawing. Push change to change the mouse following algorithm.

THINGS TO NOTICE

Notice that the path of the turtles has perpendicular lines in relation to the direction of the path in it at certain intervals. What does this tell about the drawing algorithm of turtles with pen down?

EXTENDING THE MODEL

1)Change the code to produce some other mouse following and coloring algorithms
2)Use patches as a drawing layer and describe various color blending algorithms and line drawing algorithms
