Time to do my final repeat designs! I have also added black to my colour pallet and my colour board.
From the Lilly drawing I took a single lilly and decided to work with it. I have coloured it in using only the colours I chose for my colour pallet.
Starting to create repeat patterns not using the Illustrator tool. I have copied and paste the lilly digital illustration in one line then copied the whole line, flipped it do it’s mirrored then repeat the lines. I think is pattern looks pretty good, I definitely wan to add come of my colours in to it.
Adding yellows and navy from my colour pallet. I have experimented with transparency as 70%
The whole set of lilies. Again done in Illustrator.
I basically done the same. I have copied and paste the digital drawing and flipped it to create a pattern, then repeated it to create a repeat pattern. I experimented with two then three colours. I do like this pattern but it doesn’t look like lilies anymore.
Experimenting with the digital illustration of a tulip.
Quick repeat patterns in Illustrator using the pattern making tool.
Using the minerals and Richard’s technique to fill in the tulip. I really like this mineral it’s very vibrant.
Taking the tulip in to MollyPic. It looks so great! And it looks intoxicated.

I have a touch screen laptop so I thought I would experiment with that. The drawings are very uncontrolled.
Trying to add background didn’t really help. I think this technique takes a lot of practise just like the drawing tablet.
To create my final designs from the initial concept idea page I have to convert hand illustrators in to digital illustrations.
Using live trace on illustrator didn’t really work as well as I wanted it to. Some of the lines are missing and some are thicker then other. I want a perfect digital illustrations with all lines begin the same size.
I will use different techniques on the same flower which I used in the mood and colour board.This is a x-rayed tulip.
Using a drawing tablet. I have never used a drawing tablet before so it looks really bad. The lines are to wiggly and loose. I think this technique need practise.
Using computer mouse and Illustrator brush tool. I much prefer this technique. Th lines are more controlled and the proportion of the flower is much better.
Using pen tool on Illustrator. This is my favourite technique. Making anchor points and then curving the line makes a very controlled and nice digital drawing. I will be using this technique.
Influenced by the mood and colour board I have created my initial concept ideas. I have sketched them down by hand in my sketchbook. I have been inspired by nature, flowers and incests.
Here are my hand illustrations which I will then take in to digital illustrations.
My final mood and colour board. When I printed the boards from my sketch book the mood board was very pixelated, It was probably cause by the way I saved the board or the size of document because the photographs on the colour board were fine. I decided to redo it which didn’t take long because I already had the layout and idea. Although I decided not to include the name, I think it looks better without it.
Colour board with Pantone numbers.
Choosing the correct colour swatches from my colour board is very important. Both Pantone and CMYK so important for printing and RGB for uploading images in web.
Choosing and matching my colours was actually very tricky. I found it hard to find exactly my colours.
