Pattern design

Pattern design - student project

First off really good class. I have wanted to learn pattern design and learn more in illustrator and this teaches you a lot. It is not as simple as it looks.

I came across one problem when colouring my artwork because I had not changed each shape in a different shade which i need to practice especially on the repetitive pattern because when colouring i did not have different shades on the shapes so it was difficult to alter the colours. Making the repetitive pattern is a different way of thinking because I did not realise it had some many steps however this class teaches you it easy and clear. I will be coming back to this when I need advice trying to make a new pattern.

I can not wait to try this out on some projects I have in mind. It will be good to develop the patterns and make them more difficult to see what I am able to create. Here is one of my random pattern below.

This is a small segment of my repetitive one because when repeated some of the colouring was incorrect which I will try again soon.

Thank you and I am pleased with the outcome.
