ducks in a row | ducks in a circle

At first, I wasn't getting a perfect pattern and couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong...


Then I watched the first demo video again and realized the problem. I changed the scale to 50% and here is my first pattern--stripes of ducks marching in opposite directions...Not very exciting, but for a total beginner, the excitement is in the process, not the outcome. 


Next I needed to find a contrast. Instead of ducks in a row, I tried putting 4 ducks in a circle (beak to beak).

Now my "dot" was bigger and more complex.

Lastly, I tried moving every other stripe of "circled ducks" to the right, by a distance of 1 duck. Here it is below:
