The next pattern artist I'd like to share with you is Janine Morrison, and she's based out of Tennessee and this is a very complex funky pattern that she created. This is her pattern fill right here. And rather than showing you the stand alone pattern tile, I want to take you inside the pattern tool and show you to what degree the complexity of this design is because it really is kind of mind boggling, but she obviously spent a lot of time to make this repeat work.
So we're going to go into the pattern tool here and we're going to have to zoom out a little bit because it is a pretty big pattern. And so you can start to see how this one repeats itself. And if we go to key line view here, you can see how complex it is. There's just a lot of stuff going on here. So as the previous pattern I just showed you, she's using masking to pull this off,and that's really the only way you can pull of this type of complexity.
You still need to figure out how your shapes are going to interact and correspond from one side to the other on your pattern tile, so the repeat works properly. But if done well and this is done well, you can create a very, very interesting final pattern fill that is going to work for a wide range of usages such as this one.
