I’ve been busy working on my second Skillshare class and had the joy of hitting “publish” over the weekend! Pattern Play: Combining Illustrator and Photoshop takes you through my workflow for creating patterns utilizing the strengths of both AI and PS.
I love the ease of making shapes, building repeating tiles, and testing out color palettes in Illustrator, but Photoshop is incredible with adding texture and dimension. I use both programs to create repeating patterns that are both accurate and beautiful. The lessons include:
- An introduction to the class project and process overview
- Sketching tips and how to capture them
- Drawing with the Pen Tool
- Drawing with the Pencil Tool
- Building Shapes
- Accent Lines
- Creating the Tile Repeat
- Playing with Color
- Exporting from Illustrator
- Adding Hand Drawn Lines
- Final Tiling
If you’re looking to learn a new workflow for using Photoshop and Illustrator together, or just want to start making patterns in general, enroll in my class!
