Still trucking along on my daily patter project, although I'm not doing so well at remembering to post my patterns. Oh well. Here are some recent patterns I've designed:
I usually create most of my patterns in Photoshop, using bits of illustrations that I've worked on. See that whole group in the middle? Those coordinate with the Woodland Friends illustrations I just finished.
But the two on the bottom? Those are my very first patterns that were created entirely in Illustrator. And honestly? I'm already kind of hooked on making patterns that way. It's quite a bit easier than Photoshop and hopefully it will come in handy at some point, knowing how to make repeats in both Photoshop and Illustrator.
