What techniques are there to create a geometric diamond pattern in Photoshop?


Question

I cannot figure out how to go about making a pattern similar to this one:

I know it must be relatively simple but I cannot wrap my mind around creating a consistent repeating pattern. thanks!

Accepted Answer

I'd start by use the brush to scribble with some different colors that you'd like.

Everyone Likes Scribbling

Then we can use Filter → Pixelate → Mosaic... to turn it into some nice squares

It is hip to square things

Then we can do a Skew transform (Control + T on Windows)

Skew you

Tweak and crop as necessary to get the size and angle you want
