Hmm better description: the "turtles" have a brightness.
If the brightness of a pixel they go over is lower than that, they adopt that, minus a constant.
If it is greater, they just draw, and zero the green pixel.
They also have a counter for how far they went, when this is greater than the brightness/10, then it will split at right angles, the brightness increases again a bit.
