Since I followed the course ‘illustration, digital and analog’ I know how I can make patterns. I find it a lot of fun to make them :). Sadly I didn’t had the time to make new ones lately. A few weeks ago I was just sketching some leaves and it occurred to me the elements would be perfect for a pattern. So I took my sketches and made them into line-art. After that I choose a color pallet I gave it color.
In the patterns I make I use analog materials like paint and textures, but also digital techniques in Photoshop. I like to work with this combination and it feels nice to work in a familiar style. This is how the pattern turned out:
