New Pattern: Raindrops

Right before the release date of the Water Horse Unicorn was announced, I finished a new pattern! Called Raindrops, it was inspired by the constant rain I’ve had for the past week in RL (and a few occasions of getting drenched). It wasn’t easy to make the raindrops realistic, and I went back and forth between different sizes — too large and they looked funny, too small and they just looked like dots. They still vary depending on the lightness of the base coat, but I think this is a happy medium!

I also had some issues with the textures not showing up correctly (i.e. transparency not working or the colors appearing jagged), but as soon as I unpacked a new horse things showed up fine again. With patterns I tend to change the base coat more often to make sure the overlay looks good, so maybe that affected something? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That being said, mark your calendars — the new unicorn is being released grid-wide on Saturday, May 26th at 2 pm SLT!
