Algorithms & Pictures
The first image below was created to represent an idyllic 3D scene. It features a number of dfferently-shaped polygons of a varying number of vertices, all filled in with different colors using the shade fill algorithm. It also shows how we were able to combine the circle functions from Assignment 3 and include them in this assignment: Image Added
 
The second image utilizes polylines to convey a strong message. It is accented by a scanfilled exclamation point in the bottom righthand corner:

Conclusion
This assignment continued to reinforce the importance of always writing strong code that is applicable in any situation. If an algorithm only works in special cases-polygons that always fit within the image boundaries, for example-it's only valid in those specific cases. It took some extra work, but are code can be applied to any shape with any coordinates (as evidenced by the sun in our pastoral scene, which is anchored in the top righthand corner). It was a rewarding assignment because we were finally able to see our work start to come together in a more realistic way. Lines are great, but filled shapes of all sizes are better and much more widely applicable.
