Introduction: WATERPROOF DARK DENIM HOODIE W/ DETACHABLE SLEEVES
The concept of this drawing was to create a fashionable and functioning waterproof hoodie. Using the Betabrand's hoodie template along with a photoshop software I was able to create this look. Since there are so many layers to creating some of my designs/ideas I have no other choice but to simplify the steps. By simplifying the steps there's room left for you to be creative and play with the shapes to come up with your own version(s).
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).
2. Select the duplicate layers of the top half (front view) of the hoodie template and using the magic wand tool crop out the cuffs of the hoodie. These will be used to form the cuffs where the removable sleeves detach and you also want to duplicate this layer and should be moved above the forearm and merged onto the layer.
3. Using a texture (a dark denim) as a layer over the hoodie and crop for both top and bottom halves. On two different layers use the paint brush tool create the and button snaps for your hoodie. The button snaps will function to hold wiring from ear buds in place to reduce them from snagging and breaking.
4. Use another one of the duplicate layers and erase everything except for the forearms. These will act as the detachable sleeves for the hoodie. Texture/color them but you don't want to merge them with the other layers.
5. Lastly, you want to merge all the layers that you have to be merged in order and delete layers that aren't needed in the finish product then save :)
