My second project in 2d design was the pattern project. You take your dots and turn them into a pattern.
This project is a lot harder then you would think. Just because you can make a pattern doesn't mean it is a good pattern. It takes a lot of work to figure out a pattern that is aesthetically pleasing.
The critique was a bit of a joke. No one really talked. The people who do talk talk the entire time. I talk because I don't like just sitting in the silence.
