Hey Larry--I like the ethereal look of the pepperoni! If this version of your pizza pie is used as a scaled down repeating tile, the look is no longer a pizza (at a small enough size) but I like the look anyway.
Take care, Mike
@ Frances and Mike: The name's Bob, Larry's the magician, I'm just the sorcerer's apprentice.
@Frances: I adjusted the plasma profile already, so as to achieve the melted cheese and tomato effect.
@ Mike: I like your version, as we used to say, it's rather topping.

Sorry Bob I have no idea why I called you Larry My brain is rather scattered today!
Heh, heh...and I just looked one post up from mine and followed right along--apologies!
Take care, Mike
I like that mwenz, yep def 60's, I had an old vinyl 45 cover just like that
Here's my effort, just a simple pattern, wanted to make sure I got the tut. right first now I'll try something more on the lines of the second one you did.
@Handrawn—Nice! And subtle! :)
@ Bob—I didn't show anything that involved fractal fills because it's wicked hard to see exactly where and if they terminate...repeat. It depends on how a programmer makes a fractal written to screen; some terminate, some don't.
In any event, here's a workaround: you set the page size for the size you need to tile, and then fill it with the fractal of your choice.
THEN you add a seamless tile object on top of it, to complete an example such as your toppings there.
What I didn't cover, but should have, is that your bitmap copy of the tile can have a transparent background. Do your design, and then if you have a ClipView as I demonstrated, convert it to editable shapes and all the exterior parts will disappear. Then Ctrl+click the background object and delete it.
Then create a bitmap copy with Alpha. Now fill a shape with this new pattern and you can use any background you like behind it.
Attached is a poor example because I wasn't precise and there's a gap in the pattern, but you'll understand the principal better if you just download and examine it.
The offer is open to all: come up with ten excellent tiles you feel like sharing, and I will put them up as the Free Stuff of the Month on Xara Xone. No fortune, Fame is dubious, but I'm trying to negotiate extra Monopoly Contest tokens for you at McDonald's.
