Following my First semester of my third and final year of University at Staffs I had been experimenting with my hand drawn patterns it lead me into my second semester.
Wanting to further my designs, whether that be in texture, or print. I looked into both, after years of dried clay hands print was becoming more appealing to explore.
With learning lots of tips and tricks over the years on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, I scanned my drawings in and slightly edited them on Illustrator as I originally drew them in semi circles so matching them up to make complete circles.
Putting them onto plate and mug templates as seen above, layering and exploring different tonal levels. Whether to cover the rims, or cover the whole plates.
I used table setting images from the internet and put my designs in instead to see what types of setting I was aiming for.
Here are a few images of my finished products
With many thanks to my good friend for doing me a great favour
