Graphic Design: Create a Mandala with Patterns

Discover the amazing options the pattern brush offers you by the hand of Maria Keller!

About this course

Have you ever wondered how to speed up your workflow and create complex designs in no time? On this course I'll teach you the power of the pattern brush, you will learn how to create simple shapes and use them to create an appealing brush that you can use for all sorts of shapes.

The course will be divided in several lessons, each showing how to create a different type of brush so you can easily follow along.

What project are we going to develop?

On this course, we'll create several brushes with the help of the pattern brush based on historical designs. While I'll be creating my brushes based on Mexican and pre-Hispanic cultures, you can easily translate the concepts behind this and create your own set out of your favorite culture or theme.

Practice each concept as you follow along so you can understand the steps I follow, as well as all the helpful tips and tricks that will be shown.

Who's this course for? Requirements

For this course you don't need any previous skills, the concepts are explained easily so you can follow along, no matter if you are new to the software or an expert. All concepts are explained as simply as possible, even multiple times so you'll have no trouble doing it on your own.

We'll be using Adobe Illustrator CC but if you have a previous version there shouldn't be any major problems; while the layout may be different, the changes shouldn't impact the concepts behind each lesson. And even if there is a difference I will show you how you can use alternative methods to get the same result.
