Class 2nd June 2010

Today I would like you to make your own pop art portrait either of yourself of another person in the class. This portrait will be based on the work of Andy Warhol.Warhol worked with screen printing but thankfully we can achieve similar results using digital methods.

Put simply this will consist of two main elements
1- Top layer which has been contrasted in B&W
2- 2- Bottom layer/s which are segments of colour

This can be done in a number of ways, for example

The top layer can be made by,

And the bottom layers can either be made by the pen tool or by using a filter such as, Artistic>Cutout

Personally I think it works better if you use the threshold option and the pen tool.

Post your finished image to your blog
