Photoshop Tutorial – Retro Pop Art Effect Using Simulate Pressure & Color Halftones

11 Jan 2010

Here’s a great tutorial on how to create a Retro Pop Art portrait in Photoshop. It’s for intermediate Photoshoppers, so be sure to know your stuff first before jumping into this tutorial. This tutorial requires a lot of the pen tool, brushes with simulate pressure, some drawing and tracing skill, good color combination and halftones.

Here’s the link to the site with the great tutorial:

Here’s my own version using the tutorial above – A retro pop art of Riyanna. I love color halftones, they create a nice retro effect. And the simulate pressure feature of the brush tool makes the outlines of the artwork look like a real drawing using markers.
