"Oasis" Tile Pattern


It's that time of the decade, everyone! A new art submission from yours truly. :D

This summer, I'm learning how to use Adobe Illustrator, which is a prerequisite for enrolling in my grad school program. I got bored with some of the tutorial examples, so I went and fetched my own template to work off of for the painting/shape tool chapter: https://unsplash.com/photos/Ye7qY2c79iM. Apparently the pattern originates from an ancient mosque in Iran, which is pretty cool.

After generally following the tutorial's steps (thank you Deke McClelland, lol), just with a different image, and taking a few creative liberties, this is the result! Took me about 3-4 hours in total in Illustrator 2021. I still need to get better at using anchor points and such (the tiles don't line up perfectly), but maybe I'll upload more as I get better. :)

Feedback/tips would be appreciated. Enjoy!

I really like this and I don’t see anything wrong with it other than the hexagonal tiles which I think is what you were referring to. I hope you make more art like this in the future! :)

Thanks so much, man! I'll check out your new track later tonight - I've made it my goal to finish this Illustrator tutorial first. :)
