Transforming artificial lawn into a flower with this one weird trick

It's silly to come up with transforming artificial lawn into a flower with a transformer, I know. That's good! The silliest things stick to our minds best. Speaking of silly: The perspective of the transformer is really way off. Seems like I have to add a skew function to the painting interface. In case you haven't tried it out yet: It's buggy. But it works, so... on to the next Chinese character, painting our way to fluency like a four-year-old!
