Please fave if you think it's useful, depending on this i might make another one :D

This is a tutorial on different pattern ideas that i use, there are plenty more where that came from but making a tutorial isn't easy so i'm not going to do it if i don't think there's much interest :)

I also added some shading examples but now that i think about it i don't think they're very necesarry in a tutorial? I don't know, tell me what you think :iconpahhplz:

Definitely something I'll keep in mind next time I'm sketching any sort of "crafted" item. Nice job!

on the right side of every deviation on dA there are two boxes, link and thumb, i copied the thumb code that looks like this :thumb341320700: from the deviations that i liked, and pasted them in my artists comments.
As you can see thumbs don't work in comments so pasting the code here doesn't work :)
for premium members, thumbs work in journals and notes and just about anywhere on your page, if you don't have a premium membership then they only work if you paste the thumb in the dev ID description or in the description box of a featured deviation on your page (like i posted the thumbs of my DDs in the description of 'birth of an artist, if you visit my frontpage (not the actuall birth of an artist comments)
omg this is so hard to explain :iconwhywhyplz: i hope you understood something from all of this

This is a nice tutorial! Most people think patterns are "complicated" but usually they are just "busy" or just repeated simple shapes.

"Sometimes I add a dot to make it look more complicated." <This really illustrates how easily you can create a nice pattern!

Yuuza Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
yes, they all start out from basic geometrical shapes :D
if they wouldn't then they would look ugly and meaningless, chaotic :nod:
like in architecture, the human eye likes repetition C: /end of rant

Ooh thats a good point, I never thought of that!
Really unique look patterns can be so intimidating to a young artist but when you break it down like you did it becomes so simple!
I have problems with drawing chain mail simpler, while I can draw it more detailed that isn't always the best thing. But your scale pattern with different coloring showed me how easy it is to use scales as a foundation for chain mail. I always used circles but half circles seem better.
