when you’re creating a brick wall pattern, the document setting can be played a very important role, because in such a situation every pixel matters. so I take A4 size with 100 resolution and make sure the square canvas is selected. for convenience choose black color for the document.

As I said before, in this situation every pixel counts, we need to be 100% accurate, to be 100% accurate we need the help of rulers. to find rulers go to the view from the menu bar and choose the new guide layout. once you click on it, a dialog box will appear. to create an accurate brick wall pattern this is the perfect guide layout.

Here you can see, we have 4 columns and 5 rows, that’s all we need to make a perfect brick wall pattern.

in the properties panel does these settings, let me explain what I did here, first, I change the wall color with any bright color, then also change the stroke color, you can customize these settings at any time. and for the stock thickness, i go with the 2 pixels.

and just make sure the inside stroke is selected

make a two duplicates of the shape by pressing ctrl+j. And align the shape like the pictures shown on the top.

But when you zoom in between all these shapes. you will see the horizontal line and vertical line have now become 4 pixels. but we only need 2 pixels.
