Last of the Kitties


Here is my final tessellation for my Design Principles class. I am a pro at pattern making in Illustrator. What a time saver it was when it came time to duplicate my four different kitties.

Cat Tessellation

For Design Principles class, Maggie taught us how to make Tessellations using Illustrator. After a little lot of practice with the pathfinder and shape builder tools, I am a pro at turning a square into two cats. I probably should make a video for myself. We all know if we don’t use it, we lose it.

Below, is a video I watched that taught me how to transform the patterns Illustrator offers. I was able to scale and rotate them at will. Now I just need to figure out how to adjust the colors. I was searching for the hue adjustment that I would use in Photoshop. Probably hidden in there somewhere. Maybe I should watch the video to the end?
