You can also a try a similar tutorial of mine, where you can learn how to apply patternsto these T-Shirt mockup templates!
1. How to Draw a T-Shirt Mockup Template
Let’s learn how to use the Mesh Tool while creating a photo-realistic T-shirt!
Begin by drawing the shape of half of a shirt with the Pen Tool (P). Fill it in with #F3F3F3.
Create a copy of the shape! Put it aside—we will need it later.
Let’s start using a Mesh! Take the Mesh Tool (U)
and start creating a Mesh grid on the object by placing nodes.
Afterwards, select the nodes on the left edge of the shirt and
change their color to #B7B7B7.
Add some more nodes, as indicated in the screenshot below, and color the selected nodes with #F4F4F4, adding wrinkles to the shirt.
Continue coloring the nodes as indicated below. Use these colors:
Take the second copy of the shirt, reflect it, and continue coloring.
Finish the second half.
Draw a sleeve.
Bend the Mesh into a collar with Effect > Warp > Arc, using -85% Bend.
Object > Expand Appearance of the result.
Draw the second part of the collar.
Combine the collar parts.
Assemble the T-shirt mockup!
2. How to Recolor the T-Shirt Mockup Template
To get all the colors you can see in the thumbnail, create three more copies of the white shirt we just made.
Grab a copy and proceed to Edit > Edit Colors > Adjust Colors. Change the tab to Greyscale and apply 32% Black. Don’t forget to tick the Convert box.
Create two more copies of the grey shirt mockup we just made. Grab the original and recolor it with Edit > Edit Colors > Adjust Colors.
This time, change the tab to RGB and apply 18% Red, -30% Green, and -26% Blue. Don’t forget to tick the Convert box.
Take another copy and essentially repeat the last step by going to Edit > Edit Colors > Adjust Colors, changing the tab to RGB and applying 6% Red, 13% Green, and -60% Blue.
Take the final copy and convert it to orange with 27% Red, -5% Green, and -41% Blue.
Grab one of the original white T-Shirts and convert it to Grayscale with 40% Black.
Recolor the grey template to cyan with -9% Red, 20% Green, and 16% Blue.
Take the last white copy and turn it black with 63% Black.
Create a copy of the black T-Shirt mockup and recolor it to dark red with 9% Red, -9% Green, and -7% Blue.
Congratulations! Your colorful set of T-Shirt mockup templates is done!
