Patterning - Stan Isachenko - 2012-10-25

I see a lot of high quality patterns on parts tracker made by Howard Lande and others. How do you make them, and how long it takes? Which programs do you use. I tried LDPatternCreator, but i didn't understand it.

I only use LDPC, LD Pattern Creator.

If you happen to read french there is an exellent tutorial here.

I think you should try again.

read http://forums.ldraw.org/showthread.php?tid=3280&pid=3280#pid3280 but I'm not sure I would pay much attention to the gradient. I guess that I would use 3-4 different shades of green for the bottles and trying to mimicry the haze with a quick fading gradient of white/brown interlooking triangles.
