Creating Pop Art in Photoshop Pt 2

Lighting the Scene

We start this episode off by going over the lighting we use to create this portrait. We use multiple strobes to Highlight different areas of the portrait and show you what each does.

Creating Pop Art in Photoshop

In today’s episode we continue creating the pop art image by filling in the Black and White Outline with Color.

We sample Colors from the original Warhol image and fill in areas of the Marylin image.

Creating an abstract bakground

We use a photo of a gun to create a stencil and fill in the Background, adding a different Style from the original Warhol image.

    Love your tut on the lighting. Especially the way you built it up and showing what the effect of every separate light is. Please keep continue doing that including adding the 3D image.

    Love to visit your site and watch your tuts !

    3 Tips from me to you:

    1. Lose the facial hair
    2. Marry the model
    3. Live long and prosper
