06:04 The Pop Art Warhol Effect Photoshop Tutorial Final Result

I got inspired for this tutorial by the classic pop art portrait effect created by Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol made a series of pop art portraits of celebrities. The most famous pop art portrait is the portrait of Marilyn Monroe – called Marilyn Diptych and made in 1962. The pop art effect was originally done with silkscreen printing.

The pop art technique used meant that there were different colors applied in layers over layers. The main characteristics of the pop art effect were the posterization of the photo colors, sketch like contours and blocks of highly saturated colors that were offset from the contours (this is referred to as misregistration of colors). As a final touch, we have the halftone texture.

To make a similar pop art effect in Photoshop we use the Poster Edges filter, the Photocopy filter and the Gradient Map adjustment layer. All these, combined with manually painting the color patches and adding the halftone texture create a cool pop art portrait effect.

One last touch for the pop art Photoshop portrait effect is to make 4 copies of the portrait, arrange them in a grid and apply different hue adjustments to each portrait. This adds to the pop art look and feel.

So, if you want to create a vintage retro pop art portrait from a photo using Photoshop, check follow this tutorial and get professional level results.
