Step Three

I define these as patterns so that I can use them in multiple signs/backgrounds since I constantly use the same color schemes. Select the shirt and use a Pattern Fill Layer to fill the shirt area. Set the Fill Layer to Overlay and mess with your brightness/contrast if necessary.

This effect also looks great if you do it for sign backgrounds or premade trippy backgrounds!
