As promised, here is a follow-up on my tutorial about using Illustrator's Pathfinder to create symmetrical birds, which was based on these fabulous "Re-turned"-birds. This time we'll give the birds their wooden texture, and we'll keep it all vector-based. We'll create 2 types of wood textures: one wood grain texture which we will apply on the darker brown, and one wood texture that has these typical curvy lines, which we'll apply on the lighter colors. Both will be turned into seamless patterns in no time, thanks to Illustrator's Pattern Maker feature.

Good things come in small doses. You had to wait quite a bit but I finally had some time to share what I have been collecting. Hope you'll enjoy what you are about to see after the jump.
