Learning how to do half-drop repeat patterns


Above: My first attempt at a half-drop repeat pattern in Photoshop.

Oo. Way fun and addictive, with possibilities for paper and fabric designs as well as texturing/background possibilities in my children's book illustrations. Thanks to children's book author and illustrator Jennifer Morris for posting her tutorial on how to create half-drop repeat patterns in Photoshop on her blog.
