Gimp Tutorial: Pop Art

or copy the link

Please comment and rate videos – this will help other people find them by ranking them higher…it takes a second 🙂 — Requested by Jadesdaddy1999. How to produce Roy Lichenstein style Pop Art from your photographs. This is based on several Photoshop tutorials, but is ‘translated’ for the Gimp, which doesn’t have the ‘new adjustment layers’ or ‘filters-sketch-halftone’ options that the Photoshop tutorials rely on. Handy shortcut keys: ctrl+m = Merge all visible layers [ = brush decrease size ] = brush increase size p = paintbrush tool shift+e = eraser tool o = eye-dropper/colour picker tool Remember to save your project as an .xcf file as you go along, in case you lose your work.

I just want to say thank you for continuing with gimp tutorials, I’ve seen people switch to photoshop and they lost 3/4 of their subscribers because a lot of us have gimp because we can’t afford photoshop

ahh somebody help! I did everything up to the matte paint fine, and I spent forever painting it all in, but then I couldn’t get it to lay over the black sketch. Pressing the visible button didn’t work because it was already visible…does anybody know how I can save this? I spent forever doing it and it just looks like somebody painted over the picture poorly.

this tutorial is amazing for newbies like me. Clearly explained and clearly shown how to do it. I experimented with the backgroundlayer a bit and the result is awesome!

KillerKongz says:

Don’t know if you have figured it out yet… but you don’t need camstudio unless you want to record what you’re doing on the computer. But you don’t use it to edit photos.

Hi. Thanks for your help.

I’m using 2.6.8

Are you telling us that we could colour past the lines, but not on top of the lines? Several of us seem to be colouring on both sides of the line.
