Falling Leaves

Click on the image on the left to load the canvas demo (requires FireFox or non-IE browser). As with all of these demos, try clicking reload a few times to see different random versions.

Just an idea I had while riding my bike home, looking at fallen leaves (it's the start of winter here)

I changed the l-system renderer to use curves which I think makes the trees look more natural. I also used the canvas wrapper to be able to get the position of the leaves as they are generated so I can animate them.

Update: (23/9/10) Added hack to make leaves appear to collect on the ground beneath the trees.
