New Background Test Ai277

Ai277_01_mosaic01_800

Rather than just creating patterns for textiles and wall-covering, we also create (and began by creating) textures for use in 3D modelling program.

For this reason we usually try and use a background that is a texture rather than a plain coloured rectangle or square since we’re probably going to use it in a 3D setting. Obviously the visibility of the texture depends on how much we have zoomed out to create the pattern that you see.

Some time back we began creating a variety of 2D textures using Filter Forge to give them a look that resembled a random type fabric. These were created a long time ago and we began to realise some time back that we really had to create some new swatches that were perhaps a little better looking and a little larger. We have therefore created some new textures in a range of mid-century colours which we can use as background. The image above is a swatch that contains one of the new backgrounds at two levels of zoom and is simply there to allow us to see how it looks both posted here and on Flickr.

The background image was created in Filter Forge using the SoftCotton filter by DarknessDesign.

You can also see larger versions of this and our other work on our Flickr page which is here.
