The 50s in Germany

The 50s in Germany - student project

So I am Canadian but I live in Germany, so I looked up furniture that was fashionable around here in the 50s. I just saw that an other student did the same armchair (Rega C), and I love hers so much that I almost started over with another furniture piece. But they are quite different, and I am happy of the progress I make.

I work with Illustrator CS6, and the corner tiles are a lot trickier to do on the pattern brush, and although I will further work on it, I couldn't work it out perfectly now, so instead I kind of avoided used the pattern brushes on things with corners!

I knew about art brushes, but not about scatter and pattern brushes, and I feel I'm gonna use them a lot in the future. I lost a lot of time in the past trying to make the perfect art bursh I could use as a pattern brush (and I would have so many for every lenght etc!) ...

So here are my textures!

I have so much work ahead of me, but I am learning, and I feel like I'm on my way.

Thanks for the class!
