Never created a repeat pattern before? With Fernando Volken Togni's simple step-by-step, it couldn't be easier.
- Software Illustrator CS2 or later
- Time needed 4-5 hours
- Interplay of vector elements
- Use of minimalist shapes
- Create symmetrical compositions
I have developed illustrations to cover everything from cars to bags, but it is possible to use patterns on wallpapers, book covers, clothes fabric, purses - well, anything!
In this tutorial we'll create patterns to cover any kind of surface. This particular pattern will focus on natural characters and creatures; so we'll draw these elements first then create a composition with them later. Using geometric shapes and a reduced colour palette, it is possible to get a great results with a modern, cool look.
