Step 1: CROPPING and CREATING
1.Take the Betabrand hoodie template and duplicate it twice. After you make your duplicates you will need to crop the top half (front view) from the bottom half (back view). Using your second duplicate layer you will need to crop the bottom half (back view) from the top half (front view. This would make it easier to create different looks for both front and back (top and bottom of template).
Step 2: MIRRORS and CROPS
Step 3: DUPLICATING and MIRRORING
Step 4: COLORING and TEXTURING
4.Create a layer and using the FILL tool, fill in the layer with a color of your choice. After filling in the layer you then would want to change the opacity of that layer making it lighter and the image visible underneath. If you want you can also create/add a texture to the template as well. Because I wanted to create a sheer effect where the cowl neck hangs and hoodie falls I had to this step twice. Once I've achieved the opacity I wanted I used the eraser tool on the first color layer to go around the cow neck and hood shape.
Step 5: CLEAN UP and BRANDING
After applying a color/texture to the template you will have to now clean it up. Using the cropping tool on the color/texture layer try to crop as close to the outline of the template. Then follow up with the eraser tool to get in closer...giving it a cleaner look. After this step comes the branding with a watermark. I created a watermark using the text tool on a different layer then changing the opacity of it so that the image is still visible underneath. Lastly, you want to merge all the layers in order and delete layers that aren't needed in the finish product then save :)
