The giraffe and its patches, the leopard and its spots, the tiger and its stripes are spectacular examples of the integration of a pattern and a body shape. We present an approach that integrates a biologically-plausible pattern generation model, which can effectively deliver a variety of patterns characteristic of mammalian coats, and a body growth and animation system that uses experimental growth data to produce individual bodies and their associated patterns automatically. We use the… 
Texture Synthesis of Contrasting Natural Patterns
TLDR
The results synthesized for various mammals with contrasting patterns such as cows, horses, and zebras, and other contrasting patterns found in frogs, for example, confirm the advantages of an integrated approach such as the one provided by the extended Clonal Mosaic procedural model.

TLDR
A new modeling approach based on a set of growing tools: the user can apply 'hot spots', 'hot curves', or paint growing parameters on the surface to grow, which shows shapes can fold, bend, and curl as in nature, which deforming tools such as displacement map could not achieve.
The leopard never changes its spots
TLDR
This work describes the approximation of tissue growth by a series of discrete matrix expansion operations and proposes an adaptation of Turing's non-linear reaction-diffusion model, which enforces upper and lower bounds to the concentrations of the involved chemical reagents.
Pattern formation through minimalist biologically inspired cellular simulation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that adding chemical saturation increases significantly the range of simulated patterns using reaction-diffusion, including patterns not possible before such as the leopard rosettes.
Animating Quadrupeds: Methods and Applications
TLDR
An outline of the various ways that realistic quadruped motion can be achieved, through video‐based acquisition, physics based models, inverse kinematics or some combination of the above is presented.
Visual Patterns in the Plant Kingdom
TLDR
A procedural model is explored for synthesis of many familiar visual patterns from the Plant Kingdom, since these patterns are usually needed in great quantity, and at least for some plants, with many geometric variation, assigning consistent texture coordinates is a challenge.
Synthesis of Black and White Textures using the Clonal Mosaic Model
TLDR
It is shown that visually similar, non-structured BW patterns, are possible with the current implementation of the Clonal Mosaic model, and will allow us to enhance the model with other biological properties.

TLDR
An approach is proposed to transform each of the original 3D geometrical planes of the surface into its Canonical Reference Plane Structure, which helps to simplify a 3D computational problem into a more manageable 2D problem.
Morphable model of quadrupeds skeletons for animating 3D animals
TLDR
The goal of this work is to design a morphable model of 3D skeleton for four footed animals, controlled by a few intuitive parameters, which enables the automatic generation of an animation skeleton, ready for character rigging, from a few simple measurements performed on the mesh of the quadruped to animate.
The leopard never changes its spots: realistic pigmentation pattern formation by coupling tissue growth with reaction-diffusion
TLDR
This work describes the approximation of tissue growth by a series of discrete matrix expansion operations and proposes an adaptation of Turing’s non-linear reaction-diffusion model, which enforces upper and lower bounds to the concentrations of the involved chemical reagents.

Clonal Mosaic Model for the Synthesis of Mammalian Coat Patterns
TLDR
The Clonal Mosaic model is introduced, based on cell division and cell-to-cell interactions, and it can generate repeating spotted and striped patterns occurring in several species of mammals, especially the big cats and giraffes.

TLDR
A biochemically plausible model mechanism is proposed for generating major aspects of these patterns, based on a diffusing morphogen that activates a gene or colour-specific enzyme in a threshold manner to generate a stable heterogeneous spatial pattern.
Growing and Animating Polygonal Models of Animals
TLDR
It is presented here basic techniques to transfer growth data to computer models (especially polygonal meshes), which allows animation of the growth as well asAnimation of the body in the traditional sense.

TLDR
A new model of mammalian pattern formation called Clonal Mosaic, suitable for computer graphics purposes and with strong biological plausibility is introduced, and the notion of integration of independent tools as an important development in the field of computer graphics is advanced.
Cellular texture generation
TLDR
This simulation combines and extends previous work in developmental models and constrained particle systems to generate patterns of geometric elements using a biologically-motivated cellular development simulation together with a constraint to keep the cells on a surface.

TLDR
A biologically motivated method of texture synthesis called reaction-diffusion is described and it is demonstrated how these textures can be generated in a manner that directly matches the geometry of a given surface.

TLDR
A technique for modeling fur, but not long human hair, quickly, using the facilities of common graphics workstations, and is judged to offer reasonable realism at substantially faster rendering rates than previously reported hair techniques.
