This week I have something different from you: a set of 6 layered patterns in low poly style, that will help you create your own geometric patterns.
‘Low Poly’ was a technique originally used for making 3D models and scenes for videogames, due to its render speed, which was achieved thanks to low polygonal resolution.
Spoongraphics published an interesting tutorial on his blog about how you can create low poly art yourself, here’s the link. Most tutorials that I found use Illustrator to create a low poly style. But to be honest, I’m not that great with Illustrator and I found this tutorial that shows you how you can achieve the same effect using Photoshop only. I have used the same technique to create the patterns. And I had fun!
Each pattern comes in a TIF, a PSD and a PNG version. And each shape is on its own layer. Recolour the shapes, clip papers to them… anything you want. I’ve included a PDF with some tips on how to use these, make sure you read it.
