Create a Repeat Pattern with your painted artwork
Even though most of my work is digital I still spend a lot of time painting with traditional media, in particular, gouache and watercolour. There is a huge market for it, so it’s always a good idea to build your skills in this area. And it’s so much fun!
So in this class, we are going to paint some icons using a medium of your choice. It might be Gouache, watercolour or whatever else you enjoy painting with. We will then scan those in and create a simple pattern in Photoshop.
Throughout this class, I’ll teach you how to:
Transferring them to Photoshop
Removing backgrounds and isolating each icon on a separate layer
Creating a repeating grid pattern in Photoshop
