How to Draw Cartoon T Shirts

Cartoon t shirts drawing

Cartoon t shirts – yes – and then when you’re all done… complete with a cool new design that you come up with!

This lesson will be helpful to you, especially if you’re looking to try out different designs, logos, etc. – something you might want to sport on a piece of clothing.

Then again – it’ll also help you draw a t-shirt… perhaps for a cartoon character to wear!?

OK – now for the clothing!

Second Step – How to Draw Cartoon T Shirts

Here you can better appreciate the pattern from above. Just lets you mark off the key areas a bit faster and with less frustration – as you’ve already mapped out distances, etc. ahead of time. And this is especially helpful – when the design – is your focus.

It’s that desk lamp again! Yes – I don’t know… I’ve always liked this character… created it some time ago. But of course – you can add a unique logo/character of your own. Experiment with different looks, colors, etc. And then…

Make it into an actual T Shirt! 🙂
