To create this trees wallpaper design I used old tree illustrations as a starting point for these designs. I wanted to be able to colour each of the trees differently, meaning a different layer for each tree. I traced the tree illustrations as paths, so that they are now scalable vectors. Meaning I could produce designs with giant trees, which would be great used in a commercial location.
Initial designs had the trees in a row – as below. Which perhaps would have worked as a border, but didn’t look remotely like a real woodland with jumbled trees.
