Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating patterned pants, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
Patterns are fairly easy to create but sometimes those patterns need to be…manipulated to make them look real.…Julian Kost here is wearing these pants that have this very intricate little pattern.…It's just made up of these little squares and these tinier squares inside and so on.…But you could see that it's all folding and following the folds of the fabric and so on.…So that's what we're going to create now.…If I go over here, the file where I've got a path that I created. It's going to be the leg.…So right onto this leg we're going to create that pattern and make it look right.…
So I am going to go in here and I am going to select the colors that I want for this.…So we'll go back to that other file and we'll pick the colors that we need.…So we see that we have these two different types of purplish color here.…So what I am going to do is I am going to select the dark one for the…foreground and holding down my Option/ Alt keys and clicking on the light tone…so I have it for the background.…
In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
