First scetch. Thinking about animating some GITS-like robot. Can't design robot good enough.
Pattern - tiles of the floor. Also didn't come up with good tiles yet.

Someone should answer soon.

Webster defines "pattern" as "a repeated form or design"

So considering you are limiting your composition by the form and design of these mosaic tiles, then heck yes it applies! Great work btw.

imo game tiles by themselves don't fit the spirit of the challenge. why not give the floor tiles a geometric pattern? :)

@jeremy, squares are not geometric enough?

@Finlal, I think Jeremy means that the spirit of the challenge is about creating a pattern not just 'tiles'.
The refs shown should clearly show this :/

for the purposes of this challenge the pattern should be a prominent feature (so you don't have people just doing any old mockup with seamless tiles)

using a tile example,

1. is a repeated element in the most technical sense, but wouldn't fit the challenge


2. is better, but really boring


3. is sweet


drazile's entry takes it in a direction that i hadn't considered but still works, in that he's using a repeated element to create something else, but the tile is an obvious & important part of the work.

Oh, ok, now I get it.
I thought of patterns as of technical thing.
Will figure something out.

How readable is this?

Took me a while to see the bird and make out the ladder, but I get that the repeated image is a plant of some sort with apples coming out.

Well cool, I was just working on something like this when my computer crashed and died. Guess I'll restart and try to enter this chal. Digicam here I come.

My WIP using a repetitive skull pattern, hopefully its still in the spirit of the challenge. More skulls to be added!

Screw the robot, I've got better idea.
Does something like Fraser's Spiral count as a pattern?

Here's mine.

It's pretty messy now, but in the end the thing on background will be something like Fraiser Spiral I posted earlier.


Posted By: fawful
Date Posted: 30 April 2015 at 3:03pm
TY, Meapers. I've made some small edits, I think it's better but think it could do with some more:

Now it's readable.
Made a little progress.

@Sturo
I like the idea, but either darken the foreground lumberjack or lower the contrast of the background, as it's kinda hard to read.

@Finlal
I like where that's going. I expect to see a penrose triangle or something in there as well :D

The corner on the left of the cube thing is incorrect, btw.


Posted By: Finlal
Date Posted: 01 May 2015 at 1:06am
@Drazile, there will be Penrose triangle. Which one corner?


Posted By: jalonso
Date Posted: 01 May 2015 at 3:47am
It seems to me that only fawful and Sturo 'get it'

Couldn't get that spiral effect. Won't participate in this weekly, I think.

Hi guys! Think i've got a grasp of the challenge, here is my WIP

My inspiration comes from this picture http://www.vangviet.com/wp-content/uploads/fancy-luxurious-wallpaper-ideas-design.jpg - http://www.vangviet.com/wp-content/uploads/fancy-luxurious-wallpaper-ideas-design.jpg but I created my own 16x16 pattern, rotated it round the centre point 4 times and tiled

Edit. it was pointed out my perspective on the floorboards was off, so I have edited and rehosted

I didn't pay proper attention so I accidentally made something for this challenge instead of the current week... oh well.
