Turn your photos into a Lichtenstein pop art

Excellent Photoshop tutorial by Melissa Clifton on how to turn your photos into Lichtenstein inspired pop art. It’s not for Photoshop beginners, but it’s well worth reading if only for the cool factor of being able to create fab retro posters with your choice of subject matter.

 Benday dots were Lichtenstein’s trademark. Benday dots are a printing process which combines two (or more) different small, coloured dots to create a third colour. Back in the day, pulp comic books used benday dots in primary colours to inexpensively create the secondary colours such as flesh tone. You can create the benday dot effect by using the Colour Halftone filter found in Photoshop, however in this tutorial I’m going to show you a way to create a fantastic looking black and white Halftone Pattern. “Why?”, because I like the look of it better.

    Waaaay harder than I thought it was going to be – I got stuck at the converting to bitmap stage – the picture just didn’t look right! Will try again with different images…

    The irony here is too great. But let us never forget that Lichtenstein made his name by doing his own brand of image-manipulation on the work of so many great comic book artists. As evidenced here:

    I really want to play with this when I get the time, but I agree it does look a bit complex. Roberto, art follows art, eh? :-)
