Description

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. Software required: Illustrator CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello and welcome to this series of lessons dedicated to creating a design for a two-color t-shirt, presented by Digital-Tutors, an Adobe Authorized Training Partner. My name is Eddie and I'll be taking you through my process in building this design inside of Illustrator. First we'll get started by talking through a possible client and concept for the design, then set up 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, then applying both shadows and highlights. After completing our illustration we'll add type, then examine one method of 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 should have a better understanding of some techniques used to build vector t-shirt artwork, as well as some considerations that must be accounted for when you're designing a t-shirt with a limited amount of colors. So let's go ahead and get started with our next lesson.
