Transportation patterns are difficult to do because they need to be fun, interesting patterns but at the same time they need to be inconspicuous.

This pattern was designed from the outset as a pattern for seating and is shown here in the Maxis vehicle which is available from Daz. One problem is in setting the scale of the pattern and I have opted for a style which makes the pattern perhaps a little more noticeable than seating patterns are normally shown. The Maxis vehicle is designed as a vehicle for the future and so I can get away with this by saying that this is how transportation fabrics will look in the years to come!

I intended this fabric design as being suitable for a high traffic area but unfortunately the railway carriage that I bought needs some further trials before I am able to use it to produce final renders although this fabric was destined as a carriage fabric.  It’s background is therefore made to resemble moquette, a more hard-wearing fabric created in a similar way to the way that carpets are made.

I have to admit that I like doing the sort of pattern and I now have several vehicles I can use along with an excellent railway carriage for the Daz software.

The pattern was designed with Xara designer and is assembled and rendered in Daz Studio.
