So I made a wallpaper!
This is my first attempt at making a pattern the old fashioned way: I drew the centre of my pattern and then cut the page into quarters, repositioning the tiles so that my centre image became the corner images. Then I drew a new image in the new centre of the page. Unfortunately I don’t have time tonight to get this much further along, but it’s good practice for a more serious attempt. This almost works as a desktop background, though it’s slightly askew in places.
I made vague blobby animal heads with markers and then doodled faces with a fineliner.
