First ideas are sketched out. Finalists are traced on my light box to clean up the line work. They are then scanned in and shrank down to a smaller size. The bristol paper comes out next, the objects are tracked with a felt tip liner in a random patter. Next the paper gets sliced up and tapped on the back, in order to have the ability to repeat the pattern. The white spaces are filled in with more of the objects. It is then scanned into the computer. After that its Photoshop time! The line work is cleaned up. It is then onto many layers and hand coloring in with the brush tool. The pattern receives a background and some texture before it is finished off. The pattern is then able to be made into fabric, wallpaper, backgrounds, or the color can be removed to print off as a coloring page. A few images of the process are above.
