Recommended Posts

Seamless Pattern Overlays
Extracted, Modified and extended a set of Pattern Overlay Assets. (Part of the Comic Book Toolkit)

Built to make use of the new AD 2.0 feature of being able to drag images | Vectors from the Asset Panel and onto the Fill Swatch (Good for grunge artwork and vintage effects!)
 

Assets Content
1. Set of Positive Dot patterns (scalable using Fill Tool)
2. Set of Negative Dot Patterns (scalable using the Fill Tool)
 

Use
1. Select your vector object
2. Drag Asset to Fill Swatch on context bar
3. Adjust with Fill Tool

Or you could just use the vectors
 If need to change colour -drag out and recolour objects | Create new sub-category and add as required..

can be added to swatches (no need for Styles)
Or
Use adjustments to recolour and effects with Transparency and Layer Settings

Samples as below:

No Problem they are fun to play around with. Will be much more powerful when combined with vector Flood Fill in 2.1

DC Comics 1982 Colour Toolkit
Wanted to take this a bit further with an additional bitmap fill Palette based upon old DC Comic colours
1. Sourced the colours of the 1982 DC Comic Colour Palette (Limited as different print process!) and created a simple kit to play around with the new 2.1 Assets > bitmap fill options.
2. Added a limited number of dot fills as a separate Palette and some coloured assets to play around with the results:

DOT TOOL DC Comics 1982@0.3x.jpg

Process
1. Edited some of the original seamless assets by creating a 2 phase pattern consisting of a solid rectangle containing a dot pattern. The Dots were set to erase (So you can revert using select same etc.!). Set white dots to 'erase'
2. Applied DC Colours to some vectors; then stored as assets. 
3. Used the assets to create a 'Dot' Fill in the Colour Palette
4. Scaled and rotated with the fill tool

Included the original AD 2.1 File to experiment with

Assets
Zip File contains:
a. Assets
b. Colour Palettes
c. Editing files (Colour swatches + Vector Dots + test block)

To create a separate palette from the visible swatches just ALT + CLICK with the Colour Picker tool (I)... or make your own combinations
