twenty one tacos

Well, this class is probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I've always wanted to try to design a t shirt, and this class took that idea to the next level. I have been loving on some twenty one pilots for several years so learning from Brandon Rike to make not just any band t-shirt, but a twenty one pilots t-shirt, is so incredibly neat. But I suck at photoshop and I honestly didn't know what Illustrator was before this project so initially I felt a little overwhelmed. Nonetheless, this class was the perfect way to get into it. (and any helpful tips/constructive criticisms are absolutely welcome)

I would upload a picture of my sketches but unfortunately I do not have them with me right now, so I'll just get straight to the mock-ups I got. For the time being, I settled on two, pretty simple designs:

This one is super simple, and its just a statement of what I think is Twenty One Pilots' most important message. It's also based on the wristband that they had at merch tables and that I would wear if I weren't so tiny. I like the simplicity. (And after having added the other designs, I still think I like this one the best, despite how simple it is)

And then this one is based off of the skeleton hoodie that they wear during Ode to Sleep. I know there is already a much better skeleton logo that another fan has made somehwere on the internet. But after having sketched something similar to this design I wanted to see how it would look on a t-shirt, and it ended up being easier for me to do than my other ideas, so I guess that's that. It kinda looks silly to me, and probably a little big? Eh I don't know.

I have a lot of other ideas I wish I could execute, but at the moment, I just don't think my skill level can get them done. I'm still gonna keep at it though, since this has been a lot of fun and I'm really enjoying learning to use these programs.

UPDATE:
I really wanted to do a blue shirt so I had this idea in my head that I wanted to try. I think I like how it ended up but there might be more i'd want to do (like add textures and stuff):

Update 2:
Well, I have been screwing around some more and wanted to do some circular/text focused designs. Here's what I came up with:

For this one, I wanted to do something again based on the "Stay Alive" message. I am a little worried it's a little too busy with the lines, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

With this one, I wanted the same concept, but have the band name in the center.
