Tutorial (link): Warhol, Andy Warhol, Pop art effects

I stumbled upon this link
http://www.photowow.com/
and I was really impressed with their pop art portraits. I have searched the web for a tutorial explaining how to do this, but have come up empty handed. So, as a result I have been trying to figure it out myself. I have took a photo of my son, and have transformed that into what I think is pretty similar to Warhol's style, but it isn't quite there yet.
If anyone has any suggestions or perhaps a tutorial, it would be much appreciated. I have been working at this for over a week now. I will include the normal portrait and the pop art portrait.
Here's what I did.
I isolated my son from the original background. Put him on his own layer. Used channel mixer to convert to B&W. Duplicated layer. Turned that layer off so it was not visable. Used threshhold adjustment set to 3. Made a gradient map adjustment layer. Forground color purple, background color yellow. Merged visable. Made other B&W layer visable & used photocopy filter. I made a bright green background layer and adder a few brushstrokes.

Hi Kristen:

Welcome to RetouchPRO.

While I was doing some web research on Andy, I ran across http://www.mydavinci.com/j/home.jsp that also offers their version of Warhol. I thought it was interesting in their examples of kids, they didn't mess with skin tones, just the surrounding colors. For non-people pics, they went to (color) town everywhere.

It looks like you've developed a very unique and convincing method yourself, so I don't have any brilliant suggestions at this point. Have you tried the Stylize > Solarize filter yet. Seems it would fit in somewhere.

Here are some resources I found on the subject:

Other commercial sites offering Warhol-like images:
* http://www.photowow.com/
* www.photosyrup.com

Tutorials:
* Leah from RetouchPRO:

* EScrappers (T. Paul): http://www.escrappers.com/silkscreen.htm
* CreativePRO: http://www.creativepro.com/story/feature/21897.html
* CreativePRO 2 (pop art): http://tinyurl.com/4v2go
* PSP specific, but general enough that it can be used by Photoshop users:
http://www.psppower.com/2004winter/WarholEffect.htm

Sites showing actual Warhol prints (for sale). These would be a good sources of ideas if one wanted to create some Warhol-like effects.

Again, welcome aboard. Hope to see more of your creativity in the future.

I got to thinking about the Warhol-style of poster art, and decided to give it a whirl.
First thing, I changed the background color to have a hue contrast with the face. Next, I started by simplifying. I used a combination of the plugins named "Cutout" and "Poster Edges". This allowed me to get a managible pallet.

Next, I used the free FlamingPear plugin "Koyto Color" to transform the colors. First time through, I kept everything at 50, except Saturation which was 100. This was the first image in the upper-left of the composite. Next, I successively ran Koyoto Color 8 times with Hue set at 61 (50+(100/9)) and everything else at 50. I pasted the images into the composite in a checkerboard pattern going down columns and over rows. So, the 2nd image is the lower-left, 3rd is middle, 4th is upper-right, etc.

I've attached the result and the original.

Oh yeah, the guy looking in the picture is Me!

-Jeff

This is hilarious, I just spent two weeks racking my brains trying to figure out how to do this - a customer wanted a photo turned into this style ... this was hard because pop art is so not my passion ... but it was a good exersize in changing how I approached the problem.

I finaly stacked color adjustment layers, masked as needed for the top layers, and then floated black detail with the rest transparent, but I did it in sections in order to get the shapes I needed for the person to be recognizable. Hope this makes sense, I will post a tutorial when I get a chance.

Roger

Pop Art

I found this forum by searching on pop art tutorials. I made a fair Warhol style portrait by using smart blur and poster edges.

Hi David:

I'm glad you found our forum and you took a shot at a Warhol effect.

Something went wrong with your upload. Use Photoshop's File > Save for Web command. You can use it to easily size images below the 100KB maximum. Usually images sized about 8"x10" at 72 ppi work fine.

Welcome aboard.

~Danny~

Pop Art

I will try again. If I fail again, I will have to read the directions.

I would like to find a way to produce good quality pop art consistently. I am reposting my first effort where I used smart blur followed by poster edges.

You done good on the upload. The attachment opens fine.

re: "I would like to find a way to produce good quality pop art consistently."

Do you plan to print your works commercially? If so, in what sizes?
