Spring Challenge: Fruity Fun

Hi everyone! Thanks Elizabeth for this totally amazing class!

I wanted to join the spring challenge and create a pattern that reminded me of the warmer months. I too have the winter blahs. I was inspired by juicy and bright fruits and leaves. Not exactly spring but more of a summer vibe I suppose. This is just what came out when I started sketching.

I started by sketching on paper with a pen and then digitized the drawings on my ipad with a stylus and Inkpad. This is a revelation! Thank you for the suggestion Elizabeth!

I then moved the images into lllustrator and colored them and began playing around with the layout. This was the most fun and time consuming, I realized that I have never really looked at complex patterns before to see how everything is spaced and fits together. I ended up playing with this for many hours. I am still not 100% happy with the layout or design but for me this was more about learning the process so I can do something more interesting next time, or work further on this one, adding more of my fruits into ythe mix. I also drew peaches, pineapples, mangos, bananas and more... :)

I had some problems with the dreaded white hairlines unfortunately. But they aren't there when I zoom in so I will just ignore it.

Now you see the stupid "white line"
