About This Class

08d41f58

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?:

This class is a spin off of my first and most popular class on Skillshare, Elaborate Hand Drawn Half Drop Repeat Patterns. I'll be covering the same technique but this time I will share how to use this technique with your iPad Pro. This class is geared towards students who have already learned basic pattern making skills and are looking for another way to create more advanced patterns. This class is intermediate to advanced. You should have good drawing skills and intermediate knowledge of Adobe Draw on the iPad Pro & Illustrator to begin. 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

Supplies you will need to create the class project:

• 2 pieces of paper of the exact same size.

• A pencil to sketch with, and an eraser for any potential mistakes.

• iPad Pro with Adobe Draw and the Apple Pencil

• Computer with Adobe Illustrator

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

In this class I will be sharing my technique for creating intricate and elaborate hand drawn repeating patterns with seamless flow with a more complex half drop format. Using this technique you will have more control over the composition and fluidity of your intricate pattern and in turn will result in a really stunning design where the repeated swatch is hard to spot. People will wonder how you created it! This class is a spin off of my first and most popular class on Skillshare, but this time I will share how to use this technique with your iPad.

We will cover the following:

  • Drawing tips to create intricate and interesting patterns in a half drop
  • Basics of using Adobe Draw
  • How to make your swatch into a seamless repeating half drop design in Adobe Illustrator
  • How to tweak colors and test out new color palettes
  • How to save your final swatch file so you can use it on POD sites or send to a potential client

I am so excited to share my tips with you and to see what you all come up with in your class projects!
