Two Week Pattern Design Challenge


I've never designed a pattern of any kind so I'm really excited to learn and explore this with so many fellow skillsharers at the same time! There are tons of topics I could've chosen but I got the idea for an outer space theme based on a dream I had the other night that I was floating in space with lots of pretty stars around me. It was such a fun dream that I've decided to listen to my subconcious and go with that. Creating the moodboard has really allowed me to define the direction I want to go in, and I can't wait to get started on the next step. 

Update (6/25/15)

So here are my sketches. I want this design to be tightly packed with stars to give it the same look and feel of my moodboard. I also added tiny facial details to the moon and astronaut to maintain the playful vibe. To my suprise I'm having the most trouble with the shooting stars and deciding which design to go with, so I'm going to vectorize them all and decide from there.   




Final Pattern:

Better late than never, I finally finished my first ever surface pattern design! It was definitely harder than I expected, but I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the learning process. I think this design really captured the playful and child-like vibe I was going for. :)
