My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Hello, this is my first attempt at making a pattern, I had a lot of fun with this one and I'm planning to make another one soon. For this project I chose to make a pattern design for one of my favorite albums of all time, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Kanye West, which turned 5 last year. For inspiration I watched the videos for the singles, as well as the artwork made by artist George Condo.




I started by vectorizing the images I liked the most and edited them for coloring; the shapes were outlined to apply a white stroke for contrast and better definition of the forms. At the end I had a varied group of shapes to start the patterns. A problem I found in this stage was that the shapes were too rigid, with a veery clear "up and down" so they had to be carefully placed; if rotated or mirrored they would look weird.


Finally I arranged the shapes in 4 different patterns that showcase on some themes or geometrical arrangement. I had 4 different color palettes which I varied in each of the patterns. Actually, I'm not completely satisfied with the final colors on some of the patterns, but I'll work on that as I progress.





The last one is my favorite, I like its simplicity and the muted colors on that one. Let me know what you think, feedback is very welcome!
