A week ago I looked at the common shapes that we use on pattern-collections.com to create patterns.
We picked them all because they are easy to draw – EVERYONE can draw these shapes, artist or non-artist!
There is one shape missing on this list though: The Loop
A few pattern designers jumped at the idea to have a play with loops to see what we can come up with. Well, within a week we managed to come up with over 80 new step-outs.
My biggest eye opener was when I used the half loop and turned, twisted, and connected this half loop in different ways.
Bam – suddenly I created this pattern – known as Cadent.
Cadent is drawn completely different though!
As you can see, the original Cadent uses a dot grid and then wraps an S-shape around the orbs. Cadent Reborn begins with a half loop and grows from there. This allows for more flexibility.
Without giving it any thought, I continued to play around with those half loops, and out came Y-Full Power Reborn (took me a while to find the original pattern), Funlz Reborn, and Full Funls Reborn.
There is more to come during the course of next week!
And here is some artwork I created using the above patterns:
Right now we are busy preparing for TangleMania Frankfurt 2017! It’s only 4 weeks away. We are all totally excited! I will have to talk really really fast because there is so much to tell!
