In this series of lessons we’ll focus on creating a design for a two-color t-shirt.
To begin this course, we’ll talk through a possible concept for the design and then setup our file so we can begin building the artwork. Next, we’ll examine each step in constructing an illustrative component for our design including starting with an initial shape, adding various details, and then applying both shadows and highlights. After completing our illustration, we’ll add type and then examine one method for integrating the different components of our design using a texture. Throughout this process, we’ll be using a variety of drawing and painting tools inside Illustrator as well as the pathfinder panel and custom brush strokes. After completing this course, you will have a better understanding of the techniques used to build vector t-shirt artwork as well as some considerations that must be accounted for when designing a t-shirt with a limited amount of colors.
