Hey Guys! I’m so excited to give you the inside scoop on designing my surface pattern design, Emerald Forest! ^_^ Included in this post is another freebie, a Baby Bear SVG free for personal use.* The design was inspired by the Spoonflower design challenge, Emerald Forst and my summer vacations spent at Camp Cherokee in the Adirondacks Park.
This pattern design is very different from my usual workflow. Usually, I will draw the objects and then I will vectorize them in Illustrator. This time imaged traced them in Adobe Illustrator after I drew them on my iPad. I did this to keep up with my goal of making 1 pattern collection a week. This was really difficult for me because I am obsessed with perfectly smooth lines. It was hard to accept the imperfections, but I realized that some people prefer that hand-drawn look so it doesn’t need to be perfect. Now I’m pretty excited with my Emerald Forest design and the collection that has been made to compliment it.
