Easy Pattern Motifs and Seamless Patterns (Two Videos)

A friend asked me to demonstrate how I go about digitally painting motifs, and then making seamless repeating patterns. Thanks to discovering Screen-o-Matic.Com, this has suddenly become much easier than I thought...

So I've done a couple of videos, showing the basics of the process, though not in-depth (which would take hours!).

Here's a quick ArtRage demo, showing (v. fast) inking and painting of a small motif...

And next is the basics for making that motif into a seamless pattern in Patternshop. (With the added bonus that Patternshop is an open-source, free program).

Let me know if you find this useful and or what other digital painting/digital art/design topics you'd like me to cover.
