Calling all graphic artists...

How would I go about creating a t-shirt design like the following:

Surely they aren't drawn freehand?!

BTW, if you can point me to a program, I can play with it and figure it out.

I am guessing they drew it, scanned it, and coloured, and modified it in a prog like Illustrator or something.

This is a t-shirt design yes? It most likely started out as hand drawn, then traced and cleaned up in a program like illustrator. To print it on a T-shirt all the colors had to be seperated (because screenprinting prints one color at a time). For the web graphic it was most likely colored (like Keptic said).

No people DO have the skills to do things like this on a computer. You should see a friend of mine. He does the most fantastic work for t-shirt designs etc. If you want i could put him in touch with you...

But they definately used a vector art program. Try Adobe Illustrator and Flash MX (i prefer flash MX cuz its easier to use )

I would suggest using Illustrator, and working with it to establish using it regularly, instead of taking the easy way (flash mx) out. Illustrator is a powerful tool, learn it right, you can do loads of stuff, and I mean LOADS!

But...Illustrator is made for this kind of work, and has many features which if you take time to understand and learn, will let you take ULTIMATE control of

Flash is made for it too - they're both vector art programs but flash has the brilliant addition of animation features

For Tshirts, everyone will take an Illustrator file (AI, EPS).. no one wants a Flash animation!
