Digital Painting with Image Tiles: Patterns and Weaves

  • Wallace Jackson


Now that we have covered the basic concepts regarding vector and raster imagery as well as using brush strokes on a canvas (or page, in Inkscape), let’s take a look at how to use patterns (Inkscape and painter) and weaves (Painter) to fill areas with seamless image "tiles." We will review how to stroke and fill vector (closed path) objects, using both solid colors as well as gradients. The bulk of this chapter will cover the more complex 2D image seamless tile texturing patterns available in Inkscape as well as weaves, available in Painter.
