This weekend I finally got around to drawing out a pattern inspired by what looks like a wood carving (though it looks to perfect to be hand-carved). I've had it pinterest board for a while - the actual pin is a dead link, but you can see the image from my board here - I love it, such beautiful flow from one section to the next - I couldn't get quite that look, maybe with more practice :) I have dubbed the pattern "leaflet".
More poppies! Leaflet pattern on the tube. Love how shading really brings this pattern to life.
The pattern step out: I found it a really forgiving pattern - it didn't matter if my curves lined up exactly at the start, or if some of my s strokes were a bit off (my concentration has a tendancy to wander!) Click the image for larger view.
You can find a video with wavy line variation here
Some easy variations such as a double curved or centre lines, leaving one side pattern free, comma shaped fill. Lots of shading options, also. These are just a couple of ideas.
Contours nicely, too :)
