Pop Art

Photoshop tutorial

step 1

Remove the background of your portrait photo.
1-Make a rectangle:
and then type in the number of pixels or inches or cm you prefer. I used 36x47 cm.
Use the eyedropper to pick a bright color and fill the rectangle with the paint bucket.
2-Use the rectangular marquee tool to make a smaller rectangle (a few mm smaller than 1/4 of the big rectangle) inside the big one.
3-4-Make four rectangles that size and give them each a different bright color.

step 2

Copy/paste the portrait in each rectangle. Resize it so it will fit the rectangle perfectly.
edit>transform>scale (press shift while change the size to keep the proportions)

step 3

Highlight the portrait layer in the layer window.
Use the eyedropper to put black in the foreground box and white in the background box.
filter>sketch>torn edges
Change the balance, smoothness and contrast to get the perfect black and white image.

step 4

The result of the "torn edges" filter.

step 5

Use the eyedropper to pick a color (you can go with the 4 background colors or go with 4 new colors) and fill the white parts with the paint bucket tool.

step 6

All done.
