Create Warhol Pop Art with Paint Program
Students Create Andy Warhol Pop Art with Free Paint Program
Students use a free paint / graphics program to create Andy Warhol Pop Art with their own picture. Students use common graphics program tools such as the color palette, paint brush, paint bucket, spray can and a variety of special effects to create a unique and interesting pop art self portrait. The program used here is the free program PhotoFiltre.
These examples have been reduced in size. Actual size will vary.
What you will need:
1) Photofiltre free paint program.
2) Photofiltre plugin - Arithmetique. Unzip the plugin file and copy the plugin to C:\Program Files\Photofiltre\Plugins.
3) An image to work with.
Open your picture in photofiltre. Then make a duplicate. Menu > Image > Duplicate.
Activate the first image my clicking on it. Blur the image with Filter > Visual Effect > Artistic Blur.
Give the first image a posterized effect. Menu > Adjust > Posterize. Experiment with the level slider adjustment.
The level used here is 30.
Activate the duplicate image by clicking on it. Convert the duplicate image to a two-tone black and white image.
Menu > Adjust > Duotone. Here I've used black and white for color one and two. Experiment, change the
colors for a different effect.
Now combine and blend the two images. Open the Arithmetique plugin. Tools > Plugin > Arithmetique.
Enter this forumula into the plugin:
Image 1 has 100% opacity added to Image 2 with 30% opacity divided by 100. Experiment. Change the opacity.
Click the preview button to see the results. Then click OK when done.
Use the color palette, paint bucket, brushes and spray can to paint your image. Here I've used to line tool to add some extra fun. Save the image when done painting.
Create a duplicate of your image. Menu > Image > Duplicate.
Activate the duplicate by clicking on it.
Swap the colors of the duplicate. Menu > Adjust > Swap RGB Channel.
There are several choices in this panel. Choose one that makes the colors as different from image one as possible.
Right click on the duplicate and choose copy. Now minimize the duplicate.
Activate the first image by clicking on it. Paste the duplicate next to it. Edit > Paste special > Assemble. Assemble clipboard data at Right. Click OK.
You will now have two images side by side.
Right click and copy the combined images.
Swap the colors of the combined images. Menu > Adjust > Swap RGB channel. As before, choose some colors that are very different from the originals.
Paste the originals under these. Menu > Edit > Paste Special > Assemble > Bottom.
Here is the final result. To make changes before saving, use the undo button.
