Chinese Engravings - Patterns

Hello there!

So excited to start this! Sadly, it's been a long time since I grabbed a pencil and start drawing...hopefully this will change now. Here I'll post all my progress on the patterns :)


I was in Shanghai 3 months ago and I bought a book of old chinese engravings at Shanghai's Library shop (really recommended, very interesting publications). So when I saw the first video I thought it would be a great idea to get inspiration from it. 

There's a lot of different subjects, but one thing that got my attention was all the different drawings portraying nature (basically trees):


Also, I got really inspired by some pictures of lights and tools I found, so I thought it would be a good idea to prepare another moodboard in order to create more patterns*:


*I actually went a little crazy with the pattern ideas...those are the main 3. And I have another in my mind of different wheels of carriages, carts and trains. Let's see first how the others develop hahhaha
