Create Wave Patterns in Illustrator – Making Seamless Pattern Tiles



Create Wave Patterns in Illustrator- Making Seamless Pattern Tiles
Learn to create a wave shape pattern reminiscent of an ocean wave in Illustrator CS6 & CC and Illustrator 2014.You will see how to create the starting shape which requires you to use the pen tool to draw a simple S shape. You will see how to test to see if the line will work correctly as a starting shape. Once you are happy with the basic shape you will see how to create a wave from it. One wave pattern will be created using a brushed shape and using the Pattern maker in Illustrator. A more sophisticated pattern is created as a series of filled shapes which are duplicated, colored and layered on top of each other to create the basic pattern tile. This pattern looks simple but it is really quite complex to make and involves creating and uniting shapes to get the exact starting point.
To make the pattern you will use the new Pattern make tool which is an easy pattern generator in Illustrator CS6 & CC and Illustrator CC 2014. Once complete you will also see how to fill a shape with your pattern and how to scale the pattern inside the shape. These patterns are seamless repeating tiling patterns that you can use for fabric design (think spoonflower) or for web backgrounds as well as backgrounds and fills for your own projects.
