In this project, we aim to develop an effective system for synthesizing skin patterns of animals on three-dimensional surfaces. To accomplish the task of pattern synthesis, we have proposed and developed a system , which is inspired by Clonal Mosaic model . A Clonal Mosaic model simulates cell-to-cell repulsion on arbitrary surface. By assigning different repulsiveness values on these cells, a regulated spatial cell arrangement is likely to be formed. This arrangement of cells shows appealing result, which is comparable with those natural patterns found on animal skin. However, a typical Clonal Mosaic process requires a complex computation, where distance of cells across the surface has to be measured and movement of cells has to be constrainted on the surface. As a result, a time consuming process is envisaged for generating patterns on an arbitrary surface.
