Creating seamless patterns for tileable textures

Inkscape video tutorial

I got sidetracked again by a reader’s request. It’s a nice and easy to follow video tutorial. It shows a simple trick to easily create seamless patterns in Inkscape. Due to the complexity I had to split the video up. Covering the game art part for the creation of grass, dirt or water tiles would make the video way too long. I just outlined the basic idea in this tutorial. The game art related creations will get separate videos.

Note:
The tutorial works best with plain coloured backgrounds. Keep your shapes smaller than the tiling square. Bigger objects can cause problems when tiling.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tip. The next video will use the basics covered here and I will make ground and grass tiles for use in top down games.
