Working on a few illustrator templates.
This one is a mannequin concept inspired by a blog I found year's ago but can't seem to find again.
May add some more texture.

So good, your templates seem to all have a look to them almost like they are drawings done in copic markers. Can't wait to see you enter some of the big competitions on here.

Funny you say that... the last few years all my designs have been in copic markers on random scraps of paper as I didn't want to go anywhere near a computer after work.

I found the name of the designer who inspired me to do a mannequin template.
Though I can't find his original blog, I have been able to find some other sites.
His name is Angelo Trofa and mainly does soccer kits.

His Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/angt34/?hl=en

I have also found some online flip magazine's that he's created... some good stuff for kit designers in there... do check it out if you have the chance.

Has anyone else got Pinta on mac? I don't like the way Photoshop is set up and barely understand how to use it as I've been using paint pretty much my whole life. But I downloaded Pinta as I was told it's sort of a cross between the two, and this is the first template I have come up with, ignore the obviously shithouse logos and spicks and specks all over the place, what do you guys think??

Essentially it is a template underneath and then a coloured in layer over the top.

Cheers for the info El_Scorcho, the smart object does make it work a lot better although I do need to mess around with it a bit more. I feel like warping the image drops the quality quite a bit. Anyone else have this problem?View attachment 589392
You may have to make a larger template, and then shrink down the size of the image when presenting. Warping naturally just makes things look worse, so generally has to be done at a larger size so when it's brought down the distortion is no longer noticeable.

Still prefer the length of the old back, but the rest of it seems like an improvement
Yeah, I sort of agree. Most negative feedback so far is that it’s too short, but now it seems too thin. Maybe it’s because I’m used to the old one so much, so it will take some time to warm to it. I still need to make the logos bigger. Might eventually make it a little wider once I see what it looks like in the end.

Decided to make this flat template and keep my realistic one for comps. This is the template with both collars that I've done so far. Thoughts?

Something about this seems familiar. Is it based on the old BLK templates?

They had a longer template that looked more like yours but I can't find any pictures of it.
