About This Class

You have discovered surface pattern design, you have completely fallen in love with it and you have started creating repeat patterns. All is going smoothly until one day your pattern will just refuse to work!

I have been there and it's a very frustrating situation; no matter what you try, Adobe Illustrator seems to refuse to collaborate!

That is why I have created this class. I want to help beginner surface pattern designers tackle and solve some of the most common errors and problems that come up time and time again when building repeat patterns.

In this class I will show you how to solve problems such as cut off motifs, the checkerboard effect, grid lines that appear in your pattern, the elusive line that is not actually there, and more...There is also a bonus class on how to resize your patterns!

When you finish the class you will have knowledge of many of the problems you might face when building a pattern and, most importantly, how to fix them!

For this class you’ll just need Adobe Illustrator.

Transcripts

1. Class Introduction: So you have discovered surface pattern design. You have completely fallen in love with it. You have done your face patterns. Everything is going well. And then one day you do. You repeat pattern and something goes wrong. There is a checkable defect. Your motives are no aligning properly, or some of them are cut off Aan den. There is the little pesky line that you don't know if it's actually they're not. So it's It can be really, really annoying. I know how frustrating it can be. And that is why I have decided to create this class to try and help anyone that is a beginner surface pattern designer. And it's coming across these problems, mistakes, troubles of sort on and you don't have a clear idea of how to tackle them. So I will be going through the most common mistakes and errors, and I will fix them for you so you can have a look and see what the steps are to follow to do that. Hi, I'm gotta I'm a surface Barton designer and illustrator, and I'm now based in sunny Sicily. In this class, I'm going to show you how to fix problems like the check about the fact or when your motives are sort of cut off and a piece is missing or when they're strange lines appearing like great lines that you don't know what it is about. And we will also talk about sort of fake line when illustrator is just having a laugh and, you know, just making your life miserable for no reason at all. Yeah, So if you have faced any of these problems at any one time, just watch the class and then feel free to let me know if there is anything else you want to. You want to know if there is any of the problem that I have uncovered in the class on? You can do that in the discussion section and off course. You can always contact me as well. Sent me an email. Andi, I will be happy. Toe help. Okay. I hope the class will really be useful for you. And I hope you will enjoy it on its get started. 2. Class Project: I think so. This class doesn't actually have a project per se. But if you do a problem and you manage to solve it by following the instructions off one of the lessons, then I will be very happy if you would post pictures off, maybe the before and after in the project section so I can have a look at your progress. And yes, it would really make me happy if I have helped you. So without further ado, let's get started and tackled those problems. 3. How To Build a Repeat Pattern: Hey, guys, in this. Listen, I'm going to show you how to do a basic repeat pattern. Now I know what you're thinking, Cata. This is a class about error. Sent mistakes when you dealing with the building patterns. So why are you showing us how to make a repeat pattern? But the thing is, I want you to know to have a clear idea off what's involved when creating a repeat pattern . So all the most important steps that you need to take. So if you know how to do this already, feel free to skip this part and just go ahead and watch the rest of the cast. But otherwise you can just stick around and make sure that you know all the steps to be to be followed. Okay, so you're still here. Excellent. So let's keep going. So when I build a repeat pattern, the first thing I do is so here. I have my am motives. I've taken this from the pattern that I did some time ago on what I want to do now is create a background books. This is the way I work. I don't know. You might work in differently, but usually because sometimes I actually prefer to do the repeat first and then do the books afterwards. But normally this is wearing toe. So now we need to change a few things here. This book's shouldn't have a stroke, so let's give it a stroke. And then let's give it a color. No, see something that is quite night. Okay, so we have the books. The first thing I do it's besides checking that has got no stroke. And you will see why this is important in later lessons is that the books is locked because when I start putting my patterns SRE my motives in here, which are all hiding in the movement, I don't want to move these books accidentally. I wouldn't normally do. I also check that is aligned. So if you go today a line, if you don't have this a line tools here, you can go toe, window and a line and make sure that this pivotal line with a passport and then I'm going to select everything right click, arrange and bring to front. So now they will be different. And to look this you go to object on look or you can do control, too, because I like shortcuts and do control, too. And now it's look to you can't move it by mistake. Then the next thing to do is to arrange your motives. So maybe that makes them a little bit bigger. Make sure you all down the shift key when you enlarging something, Andi. I normally start from this corner and I start building my pattern. Something like that. I suppose I could make them even a little bit bigger. So did papers off the class. It doesn't have to be particular interesting or great, but then I just want to show you the steps that you need to follow. So I'm gonna put some motives alone, this line as well. Something that and what I do. So another important rules when you're building a pattern is that everything that is on the left side needs to be repeated on the right side, and everything that is at the top needs to be repeated at the bottom. So if I live a bit of a space, I can now copy these at the bottom and then the companies on the other side. There are two ways of doing this. So you can right, click, transform and move. And then you don't want to move them where its interests or that zero and vertically should be. If I remember, well, one doesn't. And if you cretin distance, it will move them exactly perpendicular. And then you just copy and he's got the vision of it right here. And then we're gonna put something else here. This pace, another way. Toe. Move this and copy them at the same time is to do control cape Andi in this keyboard increment type 1000 pixel. And then what you do is you select everything and this is important that your background is locked because in this way, you can't selected in Kobe as well. And then you well down the old key and then the right arrow and they were wolves and copy them at the same time. Onda, Uh, I just love this, um, this shortcut. I show you something else as well. If you have a motive down here and you want to move it, uh, upwards, you need to do so the resulting zero. But in this case is going to be minors 1000 because going up it would be minus and copy. All right. So another important thing is when you building the pattern that if you move one of these motives on the side of your order or your background books, you need to move the corresponding motive at the same time. So if I want to move this, hold down the shift key and select the other one as well, and then you can move them as you like, because if you move just one of them, your pattern won't work. And then you can just feel you're the rest of you. But of your support with different Moti's probably just going to spit up this just not to bore you that way. All right, so at the moment, just to show you the principles of making it the pattern and this, I think will do so you have your time here. Now the next thing to do is turn. Look, your background. So objects look old on is a lot. And now you need to create another books behind everything. So you select the background and you do control C and control be to send it back. And while it's still selected, you need to go to your color here to the field and choose no feel. So to check that box is right on the back of everything. You open the layers and again, if it's not in here, you go to windows and slayers on. Then, if it's close like this, you can click in the little arrow and you will see all of your motives. And you just need to go right at the end and make sure that there's a Rick Congo, which is your background here. And then at the very bottom freezer tango with no feeling, no stroke on. Once you go, everything done like this, you select everything and drag it two years. What you Spano and then you taste the button, so make a tangle square any any shape you like. Really? And here's your button on if you want to check it. Another thing that I usually do is to scale it down. So transform scale. Make sure you and take transform object all the ways he will. Just home. The holding preview is checked on, then make it smaller so you can actually have a better look at the entire pattern. Because sometimes, if there's a problem in my no show if it's 100% scale, so if you could Okay, then you will see this is more scared You can ticket. Okay, So these are the more important steps that you need to do to create your repeat pattern. And it's important that you understand the steps very well. So if there's a problem, you know where to start looking instead of trying to guess what might be the problem, what might be Deco's? All right, so let's move to the next lesson. 4. My Motifs are Cut Off: guys in this. Listen, I'm going to show you what to do when you see this sort of problem. As you can see, the leaf here has been cut off. The flour is missing some petals on. There's something going on here. So to do this we need the original tile. So if we go back to this, watch this panel and drank the tile out Now we need to and group it so right Creek on group . Or you can do shift control. G on. If you look here, this leave. And this flower, I'm not replicated on the right side. There only on the left side. So we need to do is by holding the shift key. Select them both on. Then either do the control K TriC 1000 pixel here on, then all down the old key and right arrow. Or you can do the right creek. Transform and move as normal. Now, this has fixed this problem. There's something else, but let's see what this is done for now. Safe. You look here. No, the leaf is fixed and the flowers fix. This goal is petals. This one is still no fixed. And this is because we have this motive here, that is no, actually, on the top is no crossing this side. However, if we cop it at the bottom, we see that is actually crossing this side. So we need toe cope it here, and we also need to cope it on the right side. We don't actually to go be here. And I show you why? Because if we put a copy on the top here is no actually going to touch the side of your books so we don't need this one. So now we can selected drag it back to the swatches panel. Andi, try it. And there we go. We are the pattern and we have complete motives. I'm going to get rid of these circles. And of course, if this was a pattern that I was going to sail putting my portfolio, I would adjust it because I don't like this to flowers close to each other. This is also too close, so I would change it. But for the papers off the lesson, it's fine. So I just wanted to show you how to fix this problem, which is? It can be quite simple, but sometimes the only time it can be a bit more complicated is when you have a complex pattern, maybe 1/2 job. So you have to identify exactly which motif is causing you the problem. But this is the only way to fix it. And if you can't really tell which one it is that is giving you the problem. Sometimes I just select everything that is, um, off the left and everything that is in the bottom on. Then move them again. And then that way you would know the EU motives were much all right, so let's move to the next lesson and next troubleshooting. 5. The Checkerboard Effect: Hey, guys, in this lesson, I'm going to talk to you about this so called checkerboard effect. And this is when there are different things that may cause this problem, but usually is because you forgot to put the no feeling no stroke books at the back of your repeat tile eso. One thing I like to do when I do a repeat pattern is to check it out as more a scale you can already see here because off the colored background that there is something odd going on. If we scale it down. So transform scale. He goes straight to the last scare used on bond. Okay. And we see here that there are big, huge gaps in between our repeat pattern. So it is repeating, but not the right way. So if we want to fix this, we need to take the tile out like we did before. And then we on group it on. When you need to do is select your background books, then control C and contro be for the back. Make sure there's no feeling no stroke on now. This should have fixed the problem. So we drag it back two hours, watches panel and we check it. And as you can see these as fixed the problem, Sometimes this problem may be due to something that is actually hiding at the back off your tile. So if you have, if you have been working with this document and you have your motives and then you do your background books and by mistake, something goes all the way at the back off your design, then this would cause the same problem. So what you need to do is to check you open the layers panel, and if you don't ever hear goto window and layers Andi, check. So this rectangle here is actually our test on this something else that we don't need. So check that you have did no feeling no stroke books at the back of civilian, and nothing else needs to be underneath this. So if we have one of these motives, for example, at the very back, so let me just try this and ascended all the way underneath. So now if we chai and do they repeat, let's bring back this See, it gives you again the checkable defect escape down so that whatever the back has given you that effect. So this is a bit more difficult toe toe find. But if you go to the latest panel, then you can check your of you background tango. You have, you know, feeling the stock rectangle. And then what is this? If you click here on the little there's a little blue square, it will actually show up. And then you can see Oh, especially hiding underneath my my books. So what you can do is you either bring it all the way up again by right, clicking a range and bring to front. So you have here now and you see it's disappeared from from here. Or you could just delete it if it's something that you don't actually need on. Sometimes you have, like, a little tiny dot or some stray stroke that ended up under your books. And then you try to find out what it is wise, no working and when it's just a little tiny dot. So if you open the latest Flannery usually should be able to see if there's anything in the nitty Oh, your books and us what? Causing that problem. Okay, so we're ready to go to the next lesson. 6. What's That Grid: Hey, guys, welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to talk to you about the problem when you see a great line like this. So let me do it a bit larger. Andi, basically, when this happens and the line is actually dark, most likely is because you have a stroke in your books in your background books. So wanting to check when you do your background books is either here where says color or in the left hand side, check here the stroke. And if you see this truck as a color so you want this stroke books here, Toby? None. So the white books with a red stroke around across it. Because if you have any type of stroke there, even if it's white, you will ask this effect. And there is an instance where if you have a light airline in your pattern, that is No. Actually, there is just a glitch from Adobe Illustrator, but in this case is actually a really line, and you need to fix it. So now is without the stroke, so we can, uh, drag it to the swatches panel. Andi, check it. And now, as you can see, the lines ago. So this was before with a stroke, and this is without the stroke. So this is important and the same thing for the square at the back off your, um, tile. So the one they're tangle, that is, at the very end. This also needs to be with no feeling of stroke, because otherwise you would gear problems as well. It will actually give you the check about effect. So this is all this was quite simple. But if you see this effect, if it's a dark line, especially just going check the U Background books doesn't have a stroke. All right, let's move to the next lesson. 7. One of the Motifs is Off: Hey, guys, in this lesson, I'm going to show you what happens when one of the motives is off. So if you look at here, we can see that the flower is no quite right. And also, if we have a closer look, this little daisy here the petals are cut off on. This usually happens because the motive is not aligned properly. So the Dima thieves are no in the same position as they at the top ones, or as they want on the left or the right. So to solve this, the only thing I can recommend is to select all of your motives at the bottom. So all of these, Andi all DeMott eaves at the right. Although in this case it was only day the bottom once. But just to show you what I normally do. So I will copy again this motives at the bottom and at the right on then drug again, the tile to the swatches panel. And now, if you look closely, you will see that it this solves the problem. So the flour is fine on the little daisy has got all the petals now intact. Okay, so this is, um it's generally quite easy to spoke. But if you have a very complex pattern, best thing to do is just that. Just delete your motives from one side and the bottom and then copied them again, especially if you have 1/2 drop and then you know quite sure what's going on. All right, so that was short and sweet, and we can move on to the next one. 8. My Tile Won't Drop in the Swatches Panel: Hi, guys. Welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to show you another problem that you might come across. And is that when you trying to drag your pattern tile to your swatches panel, it doesn't actually work, so it doesn't give you another message. It doesn't tell you anything. It just bounces back. And you're like, So what's going on? This normally happens because one of your motives is actually colored field or as a stroke , which is not a solid color, but it's a pattern. So if I select this and go to object button and make it would give this error message, he says. Patterns cannot contain anything painted with a pattern. So if you see the your tiles one stick to the swatches panel, try this. Try to make a pattern from old objecting pattern on me, and you will get that error message. And in Minster, one of your motives is not quite right now. This is a difficult situation because if you have a complex pattern in my big, quite tricky to find, what's the problem? Which which one of the motif is giving you this problem? In this case, I know which one. It is because I prepared there for this lesson on this. This little live here. And if you look at the color panel here, it will tell you that the field is actually a pattern. You can see it is not the sort of color. So one way to maybe find this. I mean, you could try and have a look at the layers panel. Look at each little square here, but it's still, I think, still quite difficult to find this way. If you don't never pattern that is too complex. You could try and click on each single motive. Andi, look at the color here. The little squares for the field and someone of depending how you call it. This would give you this like a question mark. Some of them will show you the color so and then eventually you would click on the one that shows you a patent. And then you can just re collar it. Andi. Now it should be working. That's it. So if I Joe tango here and feel it, it's fine is worked. The tile is there, but yes, there. No, unfortunately easy ways to find out what the problem is in this case. I mean, you might have to even redo the entire pattern tile just to find out what the problem is, depending on the complexity off your putting. But this is the one way I can advise you. If you don't have too many motives just to create Cornish each single motive bond C and look at the little squares there and see which one appears to have a pattern in it. And this is because illustrator would never let you do a pattern within a pattern. So it will never let you actually put something with a pattern it inside another pattern. It just It doesn't allow you to do that. Okay, so we can move on to the next lesson and next problem. 9. The Sneaky Extra Box: I welcome back. So in this lesson, we're going to talk a sneakily toe box that can appear. And if you don't look, your background books went when you're working. So let's say you want to. For example, you don't know these here this motives, and you want to copy them at the bottom. What happens is you might select accidentally everything. So I mean the top motives and the background books. And when you copy them, you we love on extra books. Now, if you're working with a color background, then as you can see, it's easy to spot. Although if you delete this thinking that you deleted everything, they're still. Actually, I know the books here, which is your books that is at the back of everything that you need to use to create your repeat pattern. And if this book's moves accidentally any moves at the back, then it would create problems would give you like checkable effect. For example, it would be I'm a bit annoying, so that's why I always some advice toe look your background where you're working and then unlock it when you finish and you ready toe the pattern tile. If on the other hand, you are working with a white background which, by the way, I advise you not to, because it's generally something that beginners tend to do. But Morris peons designers they never work with white, completely white background, even if it's slightly off white but never completely white. But anyway, if if you do have a white program for some reason, then is going to be even more difficult to spot when you when you copy your motives because at the moment you can see it because they are selected. But like this, then you won't see it anymore. And then you might try and drag everything. Two years. What's this panel? If you especially feel patent eyes is quite big and you might know notice that there is that extra books in there, so it's better to have a color. And despite ER to lock it, why you working on? Then remember toe. Unlock it before you drag it today. Swatches panel. One more thing that might happen with books at the back is, if accidentally, you move either the one of the top, like your background books. Oh, if it's somehow selected on, then you might move it with the arrows, maybe. Or you might just move it slightly off the one side. And then if this happens and you don't realize, then when you do looks when you do the tail, you would different. Get a problem and you can see it. Here. See, you get this white space and double more thieves. So it's very important that these boxes are not moved on. If you do see something like this, you could try and go to your books at the bottom and deleted. So just drag it to the little been here on, then click on this. But ground box control C and control be Andi. Make sure he's got no feeling of stroke on. Then redo the pattern tile, and then that should fix the problem. So this is another thing to look out. If by accident one of the two boxes have been moved or both of them could have removed eso , just make sure that these are exactly one on top of it off the other. So the main point here is to remember to look your background books were you working on then, when you're ready, just look it. Do you know, feeling a stroke, break tango, and then drag everything. Today's swatches panel. All right, so we are ready to move on to the next lesson. 10. Where is My Background: Hey, guys. So you have made your pattern tile. You have checked that everything is correct. You have checked that there is no feeling no stroke in your bottom books. And you have no stroke in your, uh, but grown books. So everything seems to be fine. So you select everything on Did you drug your pattern tile to use? What's this panel on then? Hoops. Your background is gone, so and it looks weird as well. So what happened there? Well, basically, this happens when you are very good and remember to look your background books, but then you forget to unlock it. So in this case, I have both my background books and also the no feelin struck books looked. And if I go today the layers panel you can see here there's the little look on the two rectangles. So when this happens, you can either look them from here. Oh, you go to object and I look Oh, but before I are located, I want to show you what happens because one of two things might happen when it's like this . So you might drag just the motives or to your swatches panel, like I just did, or you might break on the background and try to drink it and nothing happens. So if this happens like you, you're no able to drag your your tile anywhere. Then check that this is no locked. So you go to object on, Do I look all? And now you can drag you tile to use, which is by no. And now it works. And also, if for any reason at all, you look one of the motives as well. Just remember to look that, too, because you would have one motive missing. Let's say we look this one control to look it. You select everything you drag it to your swatches panel on. Then you will have a space there because that motive didn't move. So just before dragging your tile to his watches panel, make sure that you go to object and unlock all, and then you can proceed as normal. So now we can move to the next lesson. 11. The Line That Doesn't Exhists: Hey, guys, welcome back. So in this lesson, I'm going to talk to you about the line that doesn't exist. So this is usually one of the main concern. Biggest questions. The new pattern. The Sinus half because sometimes you do your pattern. You show that everything is done properly. And then when you actually test you repeat this a little line running across your pattern. So in this example, around here there is a line. But this is actually a really line, because what happened is when they made this pattern and changed the background character doctor one to show you. And in fact, let me give you a tape when you do a Parton try to always try it out with a dark background , even if you don't want to use it with a dark background. But sometimes when you change the background color, it will show you some imperfections that you won't see with the light background color. So that was just a little tip for you and eso. When I did this, I actually accidentally were accidentally on purpose in this case, gave my stroke a color. So if you look in the little squares here there is actually a color a white color. So if I removed that and then redo this as a button, you can see that the line has disappeared. So there was. It was here before there's a line going around you with where the pattern tile is basically on. No, it's not there anymore. So in this case, when you see a line first thing to check is to is to see if you have a stroke actually, in your bonding books or background books. Now, I wanted to show you what happens when the line is actually not riel, but I could recreate that I'm Rio Fake line to save my life basically is her. I tried everything, but Illustrator just is having a laugh. Eso it wouldn't let me do it. But one way to check when you see a line like this and you have no stroke in your, um, background books, one thing to check is to go fail export, say for web Andi, you can see the line is still here. So if this line was one of those glitches done by illustrator, it wouldn't be here anymore or if we're still if you could still see it. Then you go toe. If it's some type, optimize you go on art optimize, and then you shouldn't be able to see it anymore. But because this line is actually there, then you can still see it. Andi Also, when the line is no, actually, really, Once you start zooming in like this, it will disappear in my start to disappear in one direction, like the horizontal, the vertical first and then the other one. But once you start zooming in, when the line is not really, it will disappear. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to replicate the fake line because, Cilla stated, just likes to do that. So it's happened to me in the past, but these are the two ways to check. So start doing in and the line will disappear. Oh, try it, they say, for Web, and then if it's ah, on a real line, then it will disappear in that window that I showed you before so they exported and safer web. You won't be able to see it here anymore. There is another instance. I showed you this in a previous listen when something like this line could appear and this is when you're books with no feeling no stroke at the back is moved, is a bit bigger even by like one pixel. So if that happens, then you would you would see this line as well. So check their your banding books or you'll feel no feeling of stock boats as they moved or is no bigger than your background books as well. When you see something like this and check there is no there is no stroke in your background books. Okay, Andi, I think these closest this series off lessons. I hope you have enjoyed it and the hope is been useful for you and thank you for watching. 12. Bonus Lesson Resizing Your Pattern: Hey, guys, this lesson is not exactly about a problem, Pacey, but I've been asked about resizing of your pattern, so it's actually quite a simple thing to do. So if I get rid of this one Andi, just pick the tile, the original tile with your pattern in it. So these are as this type of sites where you need to do is you want you motive to be bigger . It's just toe hold down the shift key, click and drag and make it bigger. And then you can just take it back to your swatches panel, and now you should have a biggest sides pattern. So this is the original one, and this is the new one. As you can see, the motives are bigger in the new one, so this is important, or it's good to know when you want to upload your own patterns on. Pier decides you can do the same, by the way, do all the way around. So if you have, uh, this button, so let's say it was this one here and you want to make a smaller you just kick Creek on, hold the shift key, make his Moeller dragon back And then if we check it is much smaller now. So this was the original. Gonna make a copy? Andi, there was This was the bigger one on. This is the smaller one. So you see, it's very, very simple toe. Just change the sides of your motives, the sides of your pattern. Unfortunately, there isn't a fixed rule for when you want to upload a motif on appeal. Decide So I can't tell you. Make it that sides. You just have to experiment. I'm afraid, unless you know of a better way, you can let me know, but you need to experiment. But the good thing is that I think most of these people decides a day later upload there's a particular pattern for each single item. So if one side is good for the majority of the items, you just have to change it maybe once or twice for different item and just upload that particular pattern for that particular item. If that makes sense, so that's that's all days to know. And if you want to save the's for something like society six, what you can do, so let me see. Let me get rid of all these, but to make a square here. Andi, just put this pattern for now on what you can do is go to file export and then say for Web and in here you can change the weight too. 6500 Andi. Uh, so this is the sides that normally will fit most off the items in society. Six you can see now it's much bigger. So normally, that's what I do. I save it at this sites. And then if you want to upload it for curtains or something that requires a bigger file, then I just save again another file for that with that side. So you don't need to have a huge sites for for them for the item. I'm not sure which one is for it. Bubble, but normally when I have ah, fire 6500 by 6500 it's good for most items on bread bubble as well. And then they would show which one is not fitting. And then you can just change it. All right. I hope this helps 13. Final Thoughts: I do hope that you have found the contents off this class helpful for you, Andi. Interesting.
