I enjoy creating patterns. When I started developing the patterns for my book “Drip.Dot.Swirl” I became immersed in this art form for over two years solid. Every where I looked I would see inspiration for a new pattern. When I was approached by the publishers of the “Adobe CS4 WOW!” book and asked to contribute to it I decided to create a new pattern to use as the background for my final artwork. This tutorial documents this patterns creation and will show the fundamentals when it comes to creating a tiled pattern that you can seamlessly repeat. It’s fun, easy, and creatively addictive. For more information regarding patterns, be sure to download our other tutorial on pattern illustration here. (Tutorial Includes Notes in both ‘English’ and ‘Español’.)

There is no systematic path to achieve the effects since the creative process is exploratory in nature you’ll have to deconstruct the included files so you can see how I achieved the visual effects in the final art. I’ll go over some key points within this tutorial, but most of the valuable content and information that will help you do it yourself will be gleaned from turning on/off layers and clicking through the settings of the PSD resource file provided in the download. I’ve also provided the source texture images so you can use them on your own projects as well. Be sure to also download the helpful PDF and “10″ FREE sample textures you can find in our “PDF Handouts” section under “Collecting and Using Textures in Your Artwork.” (Tutorial Includes Notes in both ‘English’ and ‘Español’.)
