I was poking around in CS5 for a while trying to make a generic camo pattern for the background of a brochure... and when I got done, was rather happy with the result.

This pattern doesn't have any relation to any Better Camo patterns, but it will likely be on the brochure anyhow. :meow:

EDIT: Any similarity to any modern camouflage pattern is coincidental. This is a purely aesthetic pattern emulating the style of camouflages like vegetata and tiger stripe.
This was made from scratch with no references.

Nice!, looks a lot how I imagined the A-TACS woodland variant to look...

Probably so, with all of it's non-square pixels. Speaking of, they (DCS) will have not only a new colorway soon ("Wet/Temperate"), but in a different pattern as well, "before the end of the year". Found out from our friend's blog: [link]

:) Damn, that's a nice pattern, it'd look good on some BDU's.

Is this a true fractal pattern?
How'd you do it?
Could you possibly make a tutorial on this?
And is it possible to make a repeatable pattern with this method?

It's not a true fractal, nor does it need to be. As there's only a set canvas size, it doesn't much matter if the pattern has scales larger or smaller than the canvas can display. I guess a good way to describe a pattern like this is multi-scale.
I started by painting a simple stripe pattern, and scaling it down very small. Next I applied a mild scattering filter and scaled the pattern up, repeating this several times. After that, I tweaked the colors to look reasonable. Making it tileable would be a piece of cake, all one would have to do is start out with a tileable pattern, and then clean it up a little bit after doing all the scaling and filtering.

But then again, just because the pattern is multi-scale or fractal, that doesn't mean the colors or pattern matches the intended environment. This result is a purely aesthetic pattern emulating the style of old camouflages like vegetata and tiger stripes.
