Leonard the Turtle I chose to draw a turtle for my final project because I needed something to give to my friend for graduation and this gave me an excuse to draw one I used several types of equations including parabolas ellipses lines circles and sine and cosine curves After finally figured out what everything looked like the only hard part left was the animation I got a little help with the program for the animation but the majority if this project was done by me I named the turtle Leonard because that was the first name that pooped into my head when I was asked if he had a name The first thing I had to do was get the first picture done and copied after that it is just manipulating two or three equations to animate it Here are the equations for the first picture Part of LeonardEquationType of equation Top of ShellY1 -110X22 X8805 -5 and X8804 4Parabola Bottom of ShellY2 -120X212 X8805 -4 and X8804 4Parabola TailY3 -433 X8805 -49 and X8804 -39Line Back of Rear FinY4 Cos58X 1 -1 X8805 -545 and X8804 -345Cosine Curve Front of Rear FinY5 Sin58X 11 -1 X8805 -545 and X8804 -181Sine Curve Front of Front FinY6 Cos58X 1 -1 X8805 113 and X8804 46Cosine Curve Back of Front FinY7 Sin58X 11 -1 X8805 29 and X8804 46Sine Curve Top of HeadY8 8730 1- 1X -42 05 -5Ellipse Bottom of HeadY9 -8730 1- 1X -42 05 5Ellipse After graphing the equations the picture looked like this At this point the drawing itself became a little easier The only thing I really had to do was manipulate the last three equations changing the size of his head After manipulating the equations for the second picture they looked like this Part of LeonardEquationType of equation Top of ShellY1
