  • how to create a repetitive pattern like that?

    hi

    is it ever possible to create a pattern exactly like that, in CS5 photoshop from scratch, which repeats itself endlessly and you cannot see the borders and that it is a pattern?

    thanks

    Yes it is possible. It involves using the offset filter and cloning, dodging/burning to eliminate the seams.

      Well, you'd see that it is a pattern, but yes, you can draw something similar that repeats itself. I don't know of any filters that generate this kind of pattern automatically (maybe some filter-gurus in here do?). When drawing/constructing/painting it, make sure the left/right and top/bottom edges match up (that's the only rule when making such a pattern).

      Since you need it "exactly" like that, could you use that picture as a starting point to copy from? Better if you have a larger section of the texture in better quality - it is a damn complex pattern to draw from scratch!

      Tip: You can use Filter > Other > Offset to "shift" an image so that you can look for seams

        Here's a quick version where I simply mirrored your image to make it tile easily. It's the only super-quick way of doing this with your pattern I think - but the downside is that it is quite obviously tiled along the seams.

        To even out the "lighting" I used a 40 px frequency separation, and then used filter > blur > average on the low frequency layer. It's my magic trick for removing uneven (lf) info.

          I'd start with photos or photo references. I'd create the shapes element by element following appropriate twists. Before that I'd draw out the way I want them to go with paths to provide myself with a roadmap. At the end I'd add in appropriate shading to complete the effect, as you can see lighting variation here.

            Interesting trick you have there, can you explain the frequency separation a bit more. I haven't used that technique yet.

              Should be more info around if you search for it, but here's the recipie if you just read the two first posts:

              You usually use a fairly low radius for e.g. skin. To even out the light in your pattern I used a large radius (don't remember, perhaps 30-40 px).
