Managed to come up with another pattern last night, yay! The idea was to do one that half looks like branches with leaves, and half looks like hills with houses on them. It ended up looking more like branches with little mini houses on them, but that's ok.
I'm not sure if anyone's interested in how this pattern was made but i've uploaded the original sketch anyway just in case. In the sketch you can see a few things:
1) A rough grid drawn up in the background
2) A little marker on some of the grid squares indicating the various 'starting positions' of the repeat (in this case they're spaced apart by two-squares-up-and-1-square-across, like a chess horse has jumped around on the grid)
3) Identical branches drawn a few times in their correct positions, enough to show how the tiling works and how they'll fit together
After that it's just a matter of scanning, bringing it into illustrator and tiling it up properly. Heaps of fun :)
