Slight delays and… pattern plays? Whatever.

Oh god rhymes. They seem like a such a good idea when you start, but then you make some dumb-ass choice for the end of your first phrase and everything falls apart. Tonight I’m really posting for momentum purposes, not because I have a lot to say. November has been busier than I thought it would be (read: Pokemon has been getting really good), so I really have nothing to show right now except for these patterns. patternPreview-01

Some of these patterns already existed, so let’s go through them left to right, top to bottom (think phone buttons).

1: Water – Obviously already used

2: Brown Squares – For my money, too elaborate, but still traditional and possibly good for something.

3: Tatami – New texture that I am using for the Tomodachi. Not actually a traditional texture, so to speak, but it looks nice on the card.

4: Rice Paddy – A great pattern that I really need to redraw, but one that is already used to great effect on the board.

5: Orange Overlapping Circles – Way too harsh for my taste, but it could have some use if we chose a better color for it.

6: Black Hexagons – A really interesting new pattern that I came across and roughly recreated. Could be good as a brown for a new storehouse or harbor texture.

7: Wood Grain – Already used as boats, but if things get shuffled around this could become any of the three “wooden” texture we’ll need.

8: Tan Stars – One of my favorites, and already used in the pasture. I need to redraw it, but otherwise it’s great.

9: Purple Tortoise – A very traditional texture, one that we used for Tomodachi before, but something that I would love to re-purpose because like I said, it’s super traditional.

Right, so there’s that. As I was typing this I did realize I have one more thing to post.

This is some terrible, horrible graphic design, but hey, it’s a work in progress. Later in the week I’ll have a pow-wow with Alex and Morgan and hopefully we (read: Morgan) will find a good way to array the art and information. For now, enjoy the lovely tatami texture, and try not to be frustrated because I CLEARLY FORGOT TO RECOLOR THE HAIR TIE AFTER I CHANGED THE KIMONO TRIM TO PURPLE. FUCK.

    The patterns are pretty. Can I use them in my casual game?
