Today I've been working on another wallpaper idea, not sure if I'm going to print this one as a length or have it as one of my A2 designs. I think it might need a little texture added but I'm going to leave it as it is for now!
So here are some better images of the two patterns I was working on. I've also been developing some interactive wallpaper ideas and this is a sneak peek at one of them, where you draw onto the shapes yourself.
Over the weekend I've been busy, firstly I stupidly dropped my external hard drive which is now broken and half my final project was on there, so that was a little annoying. However, not to let it get me down, I've been experimenting with this design, not sure about the colours or anything really, but thought I'd post it anyways.
I also entered the sock it to me competition, here's my entry.
Today I have been drawing up some plans for pattern swatches, rather than just doing it straight away in illustrator. By doing this I've found I can plan my patterns out better, and play with scale. I'm going to carry on doing this tomorrow and hopefully by Monday I will have around 10 new pattern swatches drawn up ready to play with in illustrator by adding extra little elements and textures! (sorry for the rubbish photo quality, they were taken on my phone)
I had an early start at uni today (yes on a saturday) and have produced these two patterns. I've been playing around with texture a lot more, scanning rolled inks etc in and using them. These patterns still need a bit of work though!
Carrying on from yesterday's post I've developed my pattern further and have added some hand drawn textures, that I scanned into photoshop and converted into Illustrator. Going to try and add more textures to my designs for my final major project to give them a bit more depth!
Just a sneak peek at a new pattern I'm developing, just playing around on illustrator at the moment. One of my tutors at uni gave me some great tips on illustrator involving textures so i'm just going to have a play around :)
Here is the finished pattern I've been working on. I changed the background into dots as I think it compliments the print so much more. I'll be flocking texture onto my characters on Monday, to add a tactile element to it so I will post photos once I've done it :)
