Freebie: I’ve created my first seamless Vector Pattern – entitled Imperial Leaf – and made an entire pattern pack available for download as my newest freebie. Feel free to download it and use it in your designs.
Here’s another freebie for you – Imperial Leaf, my first seamless, vector-based pattern. I’ve been meaning to make one of these for a while now, and I’m actually extremely excited about and happy with the outcome.
It all started with a basic doodle that I did in pen in my notebook. It was pretty rough, but I really liked the way it looked and could really see it as the beginning of a cool pattern. Actually, I only drew half of the main shape. Once I recreated the shapes in Illustrator, I mirrored it to create a perfectly symmetrical shape.
I put together a pattern pack based on some of the packs that I’ve downloaded from PatternHead. In this pack, you’ll find the original AI file for the pattern, along with three alternate colour schemes – Deep Forest, Indigo Dragon and Crimson Gold. I’ve also included PNG versions for those who may not have or be fluent in Illustrator. You can easily make Photoshop patterns from these.
You can download the patterns by clicking the preview image above. Feel free to use this pattern in your designs. If you do, shoot me an email or leave a comment. Like I said, I’m extremely happy with the way this pattern turned out, so if you do use it, please shoot me an email.
Also, because I know that I wanted to create one of these patterns for a long time, I also have plans to write a tutorial outlining the basic steps that I took to create this pattern. I hope to have it done sometime over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, have fun with Imperial Leaf!Post A Comment
