I started out with some sketches that I scanned into Photoshop.
I laid everything out in Illustrator and thoroughly enjoyed choosing colours. The first image on the top left is what I had started out with, but the other colour combos were really fun to see. I would've never come up with the final colours on my own--kudos to illustrator for creating the colour swapping ability, and to Dylan for enlightening me.
I then brought the pattern into photoshop to add textures and speckles. Gotta love dem speckles!
Thank you so much Dylan for your amazing tutorial videos. You're a talented and incredibly generous person for sharing your skills with us. Much love!
