I took the pussywillow design from yesterday and turned it into a repeat pattern. One part of the process to make it into a repeat pattern is to pull it into Illustrator and do an image trace. I’m usually quite satisfied with this process, however this time due to the painterly quality of the original, I felt like it lost a bit too much of the qualities that I liked. It went from a painterly feel to a definite vector image feel. I have to think how I can try to do this same thing in photoshop where I can retain the original quality. I might try this again tomorrow to see if I can figure it out.
It’s still quite pretty though, here it is on Redbubble!
