I first watched Mel Armstrong’s Skillshare class on how to do a half-drop repeat in Photoshop about a month ago. The steps looked simple enough and encouraging, and I just knew I’d be able to learn it pretty fast, like in an hour or two at most. To my surprise, it took me a lot longer than expected — about two days to feel comfortable with the steps on my own without errors. Kelly Kratzing’s videos helped a lot. She, too, learned the half-drop repeat from Mel, but Kelly elaborated on the steps a bit more, which was immensely helpful. Many thanks to both for sharing the wealth! Anyhoo, here’s my first half-drop repeat pattern, an ode to pomegranates and avocados.
