thats what i did this evening. and worked on this:
all area's will eventually be colored in, the lighter areas are just because i got lazy and am going to be digitizing it anyway. my plan is to use this as a full bleed pattern on a shirt with a low contrast. for instance, if the shirt is white, the black lines will be light grey or tan. i also wanna play around with multiple colors in crazy patterns, and maybe a gradient as well.
