Carbon Fiber Customized Patterns in Illustrator – 5 steps
We are going to start with new document, the size of the document may be any value. Here we choose 600px square.
Create a Light Background color and fill exactly to your document dimensions. Now create a Ellipse at the center of the document.
Add gradients to the ellipse by using appearance tool. Choose the Fill option from that and apply the following value.
* There should one Black and two Gray color as seen in the image below.
Add a fill below the gradient using appearance color or add manually using copy and paste in front or back. Give a bright color and resize the gradient ellipse slightly above the second ellipse we created. This is to give a depth look while creating patterns.
Group the Gradient ellipse and bright ellipse, now resize them to 10-20% from the origin. Place the Ellipse left corner of the document.
Now pressing Alt key and drag the ellipse in which direction you like to move a copy. We made a duplicate below the original ellipse. Press Ctrl+D (for repeating last actions a user made) again and again until the end of the document.
