I used the cruciform curve from mathworld for my project. Initially having only put down one curve, it looked a bit lackluster so I created a smaller version to sit inside of the larger one. This was a little better, however, it still looked a little bit barren at certain mouse positions so I decided to try rotations.

I realized that if I wanted to rotate, I would have to make four outer cruciform curves to fill each of the corners. I made the one in the middle upright and curved the others.

for this curve, the two equations that I used were x = a*1/cos(t) and y= a*1/sin(t). I plotted points along the curve instead of drawing the lines since it looked a little bit strange with the lines as there were lots of intersections.
