             abstract = "The seamless integration of the shape and visual attributes of 
                         virtual objects is still one of the greatest challenges in 
                         Computer Graphics. For some natural objects, such as patterned 
                         animals, shape and appearance are mutually connected and therefore 
                         the individual treatment of these two aspects dif\ficult 
                         the whole process and limits the visual results. One approach to 
                         solve this problem is to create shape and appearance together, 
                         thus generating so-called intelligent textures, since they can 
                         adapt to the surface of the object according to geometric 
                         information. The Clonal Mosaic model presented an approach for 
                         intelligent texturing of fur patterns seen in some ammals, 
                         particularly the big cats and giraffe. This paper extends this 
                         model to account for biologically plausible contrasting fur 
                         patterns, mostly seen in black and white, either regular as seen 
                         in zebras, or irregular as seen in cows and horses, among other 
                         animals. The main contributions of this work are the addition of a 
                         neural crest model, local control for parameters, and also vector 
                         \field de\finition on the objects surface for 
                         simulation control. The results synthesized for various mammals 
                         with contrasting patterns such as cows, horses, and zebras, and 
                         other contrasting patterns found in frogs, for example, 
                         con\firm the advantages of an integrated approach such as 
                         the one provided by the extended Clonal Mosaic procedural model.",
