About This Class

417aca50

For this class we’re going to be playing with patterns in Adobe Illustrator. I’ll show you the ins and outs of making all kinds of creative patterns. We’ll start with a basic dot halftone, then from there, we’ll explore endless pattern possibilities. Once all our patterns are built, I’ll show you a few ways I like to use them in my artwork.

Using halftones and other patterns for shading is great for giving your designs a more retro feel. I’ll also be showing you how to roughen up your illustration and add some textured grain to your artwork to push that retro flair just a little bit further.
