T-Shirt Tutorial using PROCREATE APP, PHOTOSHOP & TEESPRING ~ Artismia (VOICE OVER)

Custom t-shirt design using procreate
Photoshop and Teespring Hey it’s Brandon here at artismia and today I am working on a new t-shirt design featuring one of my handmade wheel
thrown stoneware pottery face mugs. Right now as you can see I am using procreate app on my iPad pro and Apple pencil to sketch the basic shape and details of
this nose-picking face mug. After using the pencil tool to lightly sketch the
mug I then switched to the technical pen tool to establish more specific and
precise contour lines. These lines are drawn on a new layer above the pre
sketch. Once I am satisfied with the general shape and details I add another
layer and make sure that it is under the previous layer so that I can still see
the contour ink lines. I then begin to add some color using the paint tool with
a basic round brush. Since this image will be printed on a t-shirt I make
certain to keep the color palette limited to only a few color choices. As
the drawing progresses I work back and forth between the ink layer and the
paint layer. Here you can see I am refining adjusting
and adding to the contour ink lines. Due to the limited palette it is important
to use thick and thin lines to help establish more contrast and shades. I also use white to denote highlights and
reflections. As I continue to flesh out this drawing I remove and replace many
of the loose scratchy lines with more defined and purposeful details. Much of
my effort here to clean up these contour ink lines could have been avoided had I
adjusted the streamlined stroke properties of the pen tool, but that to
me at times feels kind of out of place less spontaneous and not true to the
authenticity of my hand. There’s no doubt about it this procreate app has an
extensive amount of options an incredible amount of tools and plenty of
ways in which you can manipulate your art, but for me all of those options tend
to be very distracting and can at times make me less productive. Now that the drawing is complete it is
super easy to export it as a Photoshop file and airdrop it to my Mac. Within
Photoshop I create a new document according to the recommended size and
resolution suggested by teespring. The image size should be at least three
thousand five hundred and seventy pixels by five thousand three hundred seventy
pixels and have a resolution of 300 dots per inch. Since procreate exports the
drawing as a Photoshop file the multiple layers are available for editing. Making
certain that all the drawing layers are selected I resize the image to fit based
on my design expectations. I then continue to clean up and refine the
edges of lines color splotches and whatever else I feel needs attention. I now begin to add some text using the
text tool. Since I don’t really have a preconceived idea in my head about how I
want the text to look I explore various fonts available until I find something I
like. I intend to have this design work with almost any color t-shirt available
so I plan accordingly. Working back and forth with both a white background and a
black background it is important to include a distinguishable outline stroke
to the text. Have you ever heard the phrase “digging
for gold” well if not you might want to go look that one up. Part of the process for me is to explore
multiple options until I find what I like. As the design draws near the end I
add my trademark logo and copyright Making certain each element is centered
visually I save the file with a transparent background as a portable
Network graphic file or PNG. With the design now complete and ready to go I
log into my teespring account I select the shirt I want to make available and
upload my design. The user interface is pretty straightforward
I position my design and resize it the way I want it then I select the various
color options that I think look best. I then set the price give it a title add a
good description and make it available for purchase and of course I have to
order a few for myself. I’m really impressed with the
way this turned out the print quality is far better than I ever expected. And this is
on a premium T offered at teespring.com Wow i know i just said it but I did not
know what to expect from this T-shirt provider and this definitely surpasses
my expectations. So what do you think? Let me know in the comments below. By the way this t-shirt is now available at my teespring store. There’s some links down
