Making patterns from motifs

This week we focused on motif's and creating simple patterns from them. 

To begin I drew a butterfly which I re drew from a piece of work I felt inspired by. I re drew it in my own style and digitally created the same version. This was for my benefit, to see which I preferred ( as i usually favour digital, this time I didn't. 

These are several variations on the original Butterfly:

A simple Background drawing

The original Motif

And here we have a simple repeat design in a varierty of colourways.
