About this Class:

This course, Procreate Half Drop Seamless Repeats, is specific to a toss pattern with a half-drop repeat created in Procreate. I’ll show you my step by step process, from creating the easy-peasy motifs to creating the final repeat. I have kept this initial pattern simple, with no objects crossing over edges. I plan to follow up with a more advanced class. All the concepts can be used in any half drop repeat patterns you make down the line, and skills are transferable to any software that has similar functionality.

This class, Procreate Half Drop Seamless Repeats, will show you some of my pattern design methodology. In the class, I take you from start to finish in creating a full seamless half drop repeat pattern. 

In this class I’ll walk you through:

  • my step-by-step method for making seamless patterns in Procreate
  • tips for creating a half-drop repeat in Procreate
  • tips for creating compositions for a varied and appealing pattern 
  • my workflow for use of layers, grouping and other great features like snapping
  • adjusting patterns to perfect the flow and adding elements in the second iteration of the design
  • testing the pattern and looking at in in Photoshop

If you’re an aspiring pattern designer with a good basic knowledge of Procreate, you’ll be able to go through all the steps. This class will benefit anyone who wishes to simplify creation of seamless patterns and apply methods to improve efficiency.

These lessons in Procreate are the perfect place to build watercolour skills in an environment where you can work in an instinctive and intuitive manner. I give you advice on how to be sure to save files and go back to old versions in case you need to. Check out my Pinterest board called Surface pattern Design for example work, and just imagine what you'll be able to create after completing this class. You don't need to know how to draw. All you need is an open mind, the willingness to learn and take risks, and the drive to have a tonne of fun!

The key concepts I will include:

  • half-drop repeats in Procreate
  • testing and perfecting half-drop repeats in Procrate
  • approaches you can take in your creative work

This is an ideal class for you, even if you are not sure what you will use the pattern for. You will output a finished swatch suitable for fabric design sites like Spoonflower, or it can be used for scrapbooking paper, custom web graphics, or whatever! Learning new Procreate workflows is always a win-win situation. I guarantee you will create something a full half-drop repeat, and it’s so much simple, once you get the hang of it!
