Ever wanted to design your own fabric patterns? Why stop at fabric? With the growing popularity of online, on-demand printing and product design services, creating custom products adorned in your artwork is easier than ever. Learn the ins and outs of pattern design in this class! Casey of Casey D. Sibley Art + Design will walk you through her techniques for creating seamless repeating digital patterns from hand-drawn and hand-painted artwork. The lesson will start with the fundamentals of building pattern elements by hand and move through methods of documenting and digitizing your artwork for manipulation with design software on the computer. We'll also review guidelines for saving and uploading your artwork for the most accurate results.
